    you know what, I have the same type of thing below my jawline (on the double chin lol).. I am going to try to go to the dermatologist and find out what it is, mine doesn't look like a wart, but I know it doesn't look like a skin tag, I call it the mystery meat on my neck.haha, but I will find out what it is and let you know.

    I have few of them under my right eye and a few of them on my left eyelid. I started getting them now. Can that be a symptom of something?

    I have had one under my eye before and went and came back a few months later. I have no idea what it is either.

    I also have a problem with these but I have done some research and have founf that they are yet another symptom of this wonderful disorder. I am sorry I can't remember where I found the infor (looked at to many sites LOL) but if I remember correctly it has something to do with the testosterone levels.I will try to find the site again and post it here when I can.
    Good LUck,

    I'm glad someone asked this question! I've been wondering the same thing...I have one under my eye, I scratched it off once (I wouldn't reccomend anyone else doing that, it really hurt!) and it just came back. I suspected it was another symptom of PCOS, and now I know it is. Does anyone know if there is a way to get rid of them? Geez, I'm so frustrated with this disease, disorder, sydrome from hell! I have spent so much of my adult life trying figure out and get rid of all of these wierd skin problems-acne, facial hair, skin tags, those little brown spot things, and now this! Arrrrrrrraugh!

    You could be talking about folliculitis - those of you who mention it around your jawline. Its hair trying to grow in but getting stuck in the follicle and causing a mild infection which bumps up.

    The rest - skin tags can look like little bumps too and they are common around the eyes.

    Otherwise there is a type of wart called a seed wart that is very small. I have a few. I just ignore them because they don't grow any bigger and are in unobtrusive spots. Other people find that they spread though... that can be a problem.

    I was told that the things you get on your eyelids and
    around your eyes is a symptom of high cholesterol ???

    I have had similar things appear - especially around my eyes and on my cheeks - for years. They are a member of the wart family and can only be safely removed by freezing off. Don't try OTC!, especially when they are near your eyes - let your doctor do it (even a regular doc should be able to remove them). They usually heal quickly because they are so small.

    Something to remember - if you have them now you cauld experience them off an on for a long time. These are caused by a virus in your system that can pop up at any time and is aggravated by PCOS.

    After reading all these posts I've come to realize that you are describing something that I may have too! I never thought of it, but I have been getting those same bumps on the my bottom eyelids! Out of the blue, I will notice that my eye feels scratchy, so when I look in the mirror there is usually this little clear bubble on my bottom eyelid. Those little suckers hurt..I scratch them off, but you can always count on getting another one. I wonder too, if its related to our cholesterol...I have to get mine checked in January, and if its elevated, I'm going to ask my endo about it. At least we arent alone!!

    my dads heart dr said if you have high cholesterol, you
    get those bumps on your eye's. here's what I found so
    far online

    http://www.skinsite.com/info_xanthomas.htm

    also, I have a few of those bumps (3 or 4 maybe),
    one on my upper eyelid, one on the edge of my lower
    eyelid and one underneath my eye in bag city

    I also have borderline high cholesterol and high
    triglycerides

    I'm just taking a guess here since I can't see what you all are talking about. My best friend used to get this a lot under her eyes and upper cheek areas. It's called Millia.

    Millia are tiny sebum-filled cysts near the surface of the skin. Though these cysts generally occur in those with oily, acne-prone skin, they occasionally show up on women with dry skin. The probably cause is the buildup of greasy moisturizers or cleansers that are too emollient and contain pore-clogging ingredients. Wearing glasses can also cause a ridge of white bumps where the frame contacts the skin. The rubbing stimulates the oil glands, creating the cysts. These bumps aren't easy to remove on your own, especially if they are by your eyes. Either an optomologist or dermatologist can remove them. To avoid having the bumps come back find a pair of glasses that do not rest on the face and eliminate heavy, thick moisturizers and cleansers from your skin.

    HTH!
