hello, im neal schultz pause and welcome to DermTV. Todays topic comes from one of Siobhans viewers from the YouTube LetzMakeUp channel, thats LETZ MAKE UP. And the question is what are those white hard bumps around the eye? They dont act like pimples and.
They dont respond to treatment like pimples. theres a very good reason theyre not pimples. They look like whiteheads but theyre not. First of all, theyre usually below the eyes, not next to the eyes or above it, its usually on the lower lid and they can be white or yellow, they can be round or oval and they can be flat topped or sort of dome shaped. They have a special name; they have nothing to do with acne, theyre called syringomas.
And syringomas are really enlargements of sweat ducts, having nothing to do with oil glands. Let me show you. This is our favorite diagram of the skin and this sweat gland is down here in the middle of the dermis, the middle layer of the skin and when it makes the sweat it has to get the sweat up to the surface of the skin. So it sends it up through this tube which is called a sweat duct and as it comes out of the dermis, the middle layer of.
The skin, it enters the epidermis, the upper layer of the skin. and when that duct, that tube, going through the epidermis becomes enlarged, it forms a syringoma. The enlargement of this part of the duct forms that white, hard, round bump. If you squeeze them, nothing comes out, if you put a pin in them, nothing comes out because theyre solid, theyre just enlargements of those tissues and cells that make the channel. How do you.
Treat these? no creams or skincare products make any difference. if you come to a dermatologists office, each one individually has to be operated on, either electrically cauterized or cut out but theres no cream thats going to make a difference. So, if you have these little, white, round bumps of the lower lid and they bother you, see a dermatologist and he or she can help remove them but no cream is going to help take care of this.
