What are the Fatty yellowish lumps around my eyelids, and what can I do? Treatment for Xanthelasmata.

For many people, fatty yellowish lumps around the eyelids are not just a cosmetic concern but can be a visible indicator of their body’s cholesterol levels. When multiple are present, these deposits can form what is known as Xanthelasma or, for a single growth, Xanthelasmata.

While it may appear alarming, Xanthelasma is not harmful and typically doesn’t cause pain or discomfort, but it is something you should check because it could be a significant signal from your body that your cholesterol levels are high.
