I have a lump on my eyelid. I went to check it out at the doctor and he said
that I might have diabetes? He had no idea what it was. I got tested for diabetes and I don't have it. I also get styes frequently. I still have bumps left on my eyes from those styes. They are little and red and wont go away. It looks so bad. I don't know what to do. Are they going to be there forever? What is causing these styes? I wear make up occasionally. Not everyday. I also use different kinds of cleansers and moisterizers for my face. Is it because of my make-up and cleansers? Please help I don't want these red bumps on my eye lids forever! I've had them for months and months. I'm 16 years old. The bumps left over from my styes are RED and the other bump on my eyelid is just a bump under my eye lid. It is not red. It's UNDER my eye lid.

  • You may get chalazion if you keep getting a bump on your eyelid. A chalazion is a benign, painless bump or nodule inside the upper or lower eyelid. Chalazia result from healed internal styes that no longer are infectious. These cyst-like nodules form around an oil gland within the eyelid. Some chalazia persist for more than several weeks and grow large enough to become cosmetically unappealing. A larger chalazion may press on the cornea, temporarily creating irregularity on the eye surface and inducing astigmatism. This can cause blurry vision.
