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!

I have these too! I asked my dermatologist about them and she said they were tiny ulcers in sweat glands. I'm going to see her again soon and see if I can get a steroidal cream or drops for them because they age my eyes quite a bit while the rest of my face is rather youthful. I will update here if I find a solution that doesn't require a surgical method.

Re: Under Eye Bumps, NOT milia

They're Fordyce spots or syringomas..

Definitely not Milia.

 

Hope this helps.

Re: Under Eye Bumps, NOT milia

I used these acne spot patches on mine and it significantly reduced the whiteheads, milia, whatever they are. The hudrocolloid patches got up so much white sebum. Have had gynecologist days it’s normal skin but def want to try lazer treatment.

Re: Under Eye Bumps, NOT milia

 

Yes! I've had the same thing my whole life! I've noticed as I've gotten older, the bumps have become larger, more dispersed, and elevated. I'm not sure if its from sun damage or age, but overall I take very good care of my skin and have no other skin problems aside from this.

Re: Under Eye Bumps, NOT milia

I had one for around 3-5 years. I hate it because it is on my skin just close to the up-eyelid. The good thing is it disappeared recently after I restrict what I eat. I don't use any treatments. It is related to the food you eat every day.

Re: Under Eye Bumps, NOT milia

What foods did stop eating I’m going to 8th grade and the bumps are happening all around my eyes and I’ve always taken care of my skin and I never had this problem please help me 

Re: Under Eye Bumps, NOT milia

@Al62 Yes, that would be helpful to know what you changed in your diet! I have an appointment with a dermatologist coming up to evaluate the bumps. Hopefully it is an easy fix. 

Re: Under Eye Bumps, NOT milia

I know this is an old comment but it would be so helpful if you replied. what did you restrict where it went away?

 

Re: Under Eye Bumps, NOT milia

Re: Under Eye Bumps, NOT milia

haha no! I've plucked them before for aesthetic reasons but I've never had an issue with ingrown eyelashes 

Re: Under Eye Bumps, NOT milia

Loss of volumes. Just genetics. No big. Most people have them. 

Re: Under Eye Bumps, NOT milia

It's Sebaceous hyperplasia. Hereditary and you just have to cover it up, it seems

 

Re: Under Eye Bumps, NOT milia

I saw it mentioned here (I think?) a couple times when these were bugging me, so I tried The Ordinary's Azelaic Acid Suspension and it is making a difference! They're not totally gone yet but there's a lot fewer of them.
