Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.It seems to be a sebaceous cyst. This will be more true if it has a a hole of a punctum. The treatment is to see a Doctor and get an incision and drainage done.Later, an antibiotic cover will be needed to help you overcome the infection. Hope this helps you. All the best.
