Question: White marks around eyes


 postsubeditor - Thu Nov 12, 2009 2:39 am

It started very slowly and increased gradually over the last three years, white marks have been expanding under my eyes and on eyelids, slightly protubering, like a gland inversion, perhaps? No sensation or feeling, no pain, just looks ugly. How do I get rid of it? On both eyes, at the corners near nose and on the top eyelids. Thank you.

User avatar Hello,Though your descriptions are not clear one diagnosis comes to my mind.Xanthelasma palpebrarum.The location is typical and is due to deposition of fatty material near the eyelid.Your cholesterol,and triglyceride panel needs to be done.If this is indeed the diagnosis responds to local application on trichloracetic acid by the dermatologist, or cryo.Best wishes.
