bump or a pimple on eyelids. It can occur on the upper and lower eyelids and
is very common in the summer season. Because there is more sweat and dust in

soap or sanitize with sanitizer. Whenever you touch your eyelids your hand
must be clean. Use antiseptic solution in water and wash your mouth 5 to 6
times a day.

spread on eyelids. Sometimes the only solution is a small operation or
