Under Eye Bumps, NOT milia

For as long as I can remember, I've had these tiny bumps that gather around the inner corner of my eye and along my dark circles. I really, really hate them! They kind of look like chicken skin, but they don't really feel bumpy or anything. I've seen pictures of milia, and that is definitely not what I have. These little bumps don't ever go away and they never move. Some people say that they've started to notice this chicken skin under their eyes as they aged, but I'm a Sophomore and I've had this problem my whole life! I've done a little research, and so far all of the fixes have been really complicated and confusing. Please give me a solution! I like to take good care of my skin, but I'd much rather just buy a lotion or something than see a dermatologist. Thanks for all your help!

Xanthelasma is what I believe I have. Except for mine are not white or yellow, it's more like a beige ish color and are on the inside corners of both my eyelids and under my eyes. Here's what I found when I googled it...{are yellowish plaques that occur most commonly near the inner canthus of the eyelid, more often on the upper lid than the lower lid. Xanthelasma palpebrarum is the most common cutaneous xanthom.}

Under Eye Bumps, NOT milia

I have the same bumps under my eyes . It was definitely from using heavy eye creams and concealer. I have dry undereyes. I had to stop using them. I received a sample of Lancome younifique serum and I dabbed some under my eyes and they have gone down a lot. Get a sample and see if it works for you.

Re: Under Eye Bumps, NOT milia

I believe the others are right (that it's syringoma under the eyes), it's caused by over productive sweat glands which makes sense to me because I drink a lot of coffee. Something that seems like it should be stated is that coffee affects my skin in terms of acne as well which makes me feel like it could be some form of intolerance/reaction causing the skin to break out all over possibly because of blockage of pores which are everywhere including under the eyes.

Take a vitamin d and something with zinc and a hair skin nail. Look at the HUM products if you’re choosing to go through Sephora. Also don’t use a heavy cream use a gel or a very light moisturizer for you face. I would also add an exfoliating wash every other day or two days. Also a vitamin c face serum, wash vitamin..... work from the inside and outside!!! Good luck on your journey.

Same

Re: Under Eye Bumps, NOT milia

I’ve searched endlessly about this cause but could not find anything about under eye chicken skin until I stumbled across this page. Im 22 years old and had the smoothest skin under my eye. I’ve recently started using a serum called dr Dennis eye serum which was very drying for my under eye. I was also bleaching and dying my hair at the same time and had take lots of showers and I’ve noticed my under eye started to accumulate small bumps which were noticeable. I believe the cause for these small bumps is dry skin. I took too many baths in one night which cause my under eye to dry out and all the essentials oils went away. I suggest for people with dry skin to not take showers every day but ever two days. I also suggest people using light eye creams to hydrate the under eye and not heavy creams which could cause milia. P.s I do not have dry skin I have oily texture skin so I do not have these small bumps by genetics. I’m trying to get my under eye back how it use to be but don’t know how. So I left my under eye alone and hope it comes back to normal. And I’m trying to take showers every two days know. I’ll keep you guys updated if my eye has progressed 🙂

Re: Under Eye Bumps, NOT milia

Hello,

Not sure this is correct because what I think many are talking about have little to no texture, but they are visible under the skin.

Re: Under Eye Bumps, NOT milia

I have them too, and I’m only thirteen! I’ve had them my whole life, and been made fun of, people have been saying that it looks like I have fish scales under my eyes, and that it’s weird. I don’t know what to do to fix them, so I came here when I finally found someone who looks like they have the same thing as me! 

Re: Under Eye Bumps, NOT milia

I am also 13 and I’m very insecure about having them. Several people have made fun of me and I’ve been trying to get rid of them for so long, but don’t know how to.
