Q.

Eye Specialist OR Dermatologist

Hi Doctor

My little one (8 months) has what looks like a pimple under her eye. I wasnt concerned at first, but it has now been there for over a month and seems to be getting slightly bigger. Do you suggest i go and see a Eye Specialist or rather a Dermatologist?

Thanks for your help

Babies may develop cysts in their eyelids. It is best to consult an eye specialist about your baby.
