Ulcer like thing under eyelid

Posted , 4 users are following.

About a week ago I went to the Dr about a painful almost ulcer like crater on the bottom left corner of my right eye just under the eyelid. Its not immediately obious but I noticed it due to discomfort thinking I had something in my eye.

Dr said not to worry about it and to just bath the eye.

Few days on I noticed that the ulcer thing was also on the top left under my right eyelid and exactly mirrored on to my left eye now as well so there are 4 of these things.

It causes discomfort and are constantly giving me very tired and dry eyes.

Any ideas?

Sorry i am new to this so hopefully this is how you do this forum smile

    It may well be a bacterial, viral or fungal infection which may require antibacterial drops to be administered.

    I suggest that you return to you doctor and point out that the matter is in fact spreading and not getting any better.

    Hi jcr1990, first of all, buy some lubricating eye drops, they will help with the dry eyes.

    You need to see an Ophthalmologist [an eye doctor] and if your GP won't refer you, then go to an Optometrist, such as Specsavers and get him to refer you, Optometrists can send you to your local Eye Clinic.  You should ask for an urgent appt. with the Optometrist.

    Don't be fobbed off by your GP.

    Sounds like molluscum contagiosum which is a virus. Certainly can make the eyes red and irritable. You need to see an ophthalmologist. Ordinary antibiotic eye drops will not work.

    Thanks for all the feedback, I'll book into an eye doctor next week to see if they can work it out.

    There is no pus in them, they are literally just small craters on the inside of the eyelids. I've been trying to look for pictures of something similar but haven't had much luck so hopefully the Dr can work it out.
