Acne on eye lid?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to get a white head on your eyelid. on my eyelid I have this bump and it's kind of swollen up. There's no white head just a bump and kind of swollen. I guess your know your acne is bad when you can see it in your peripheral vision.

It sounds more like a sty. Information from the Mayo Clinic: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/sty/DS00257

When to seek medical care:

Most sties are harmless to your eye and don't affect your ability to see clearly. Still, you may want to see your doctor if a sty causes one of the following problems:

Interferes with your vision

Appears frequently with successive infections

Doesn't disappear on its own

Doesn't respond to self-care

Develops redness or swelling that extends beyond the lid into your face or cheek
