What is it?

A benign tumor derived from the ducts of sweat glands which appears due to a genetic tendency and mainly affects women.

Characteristics and symptoms

The disease is characterized by the formation of small lesions (2-5mm), skin-colored or yellowish, slightly elevated and with elastic consistency which are preferentially located on the eyelids and areas around the eyes. May be few or many and there are no associated symptoms.


There isn't a way to avoid the appearance of new lesions. Treatment consists of the destruction of the lesions, which may be done through chemical cauterization, electrocoagulation, dermabrasion or surgical excision. These are medical treatments that should be performed by a skilled physician.
