    Hi all...

    I seem to have something on my face, immediately under my eye which I
    can best describe as either a cist or boil. I'm definetly on my way
    to a doctor ASAP to have this checked out. Any idea what this might
    be?

    Mike,

    Sorry for not providing more details. I'm off to the doctor this
    afternoon and hopefuly will know after that.

    In the mean time, I'm 30, no acne. There isn't much pain associated
    with this, and there is no head. It is pink / red, its been present
    for about three days. Its on the skin right below the eye (just
    beneath where the lower eyelashes are)- I don't think that is
    considered the eye lid itself? At first I thought it might be a stye,
    which I've had before, so I tried the warm compress approach but no
    luck. At this point its quite a bit larger than any stye I'm familiar
    with, and its really centered below the eye (its edge touches the
    lower eye lid), not on a hair folicle or an eyelast, so I don't think
    it is a stye, but I'm not sure what it is and what to do about it -
    hence I'm off to the doctor today.

  5. Twice I've teased these out of my own lid using a pin. Takes a steady hand,
    a clear eye and a sterile pin :_>
