Lacrimal Caruncle

    
Asked by drb1993 (Male; 17; UNITED STATES; adhd; Relevant drugs: aderal or something like it ) on Wed 02, Mar 2011 02:57pm

My right eye's caruncle is very red and is irritated. There is no pus or anything I can tell would indicate an infection. If i move my eye a certain way or blink it will sometime start to get irritated with a slight itch and burn. What is wrong, and how can i fix this?

HI, a caruncle of the lacrimal gland is a small, reddish, fleshy protuberance that fills the triangular space between the medial margins of the upper and lower eyelids. It contains sebaceous and sweat glands. As it is causing irritation use of antibiotic drops may help. Consult an ophthalmologist for an examination. Hope this helps. Take care & good luck.
