weird eye growth.

Spotted a small growth thingy in the corner of my eye, which grew fairly quickly. It was a pain because it kept getting caught in my eye. It felt like a bit of dirt or grit had got in my eye. It wasnt big enough for any one to notice, just be a irritant for me.
Flash forward to saturday and I thought it had grown bigger and was poking out the corner of my eye, I just ignored it as had a busy day.
By the evening i glanced in mirror and saw it hanging on a thin thread out my eye about the size of grain of rice. So I pulled it off.
It hurt and my eye bleed in the corner.
Woke this morning with a glued up eye and its a bit swollen.
So, anyone think I did the right thing? And what should i do now?

I have a very big 'do' coming up this week, and the last thing I want is a bleeping red swollen eye in the photos!

A skin tag?
Sudocreme is the miracle cream in our house!

I would ask an optician to look at your eyes further.

Sounds like it might be a pterygium - it needs looking at by an optician in the first instance (like tomorrow) and they will refer you on if necessary

Sudocrem might be a bit tingly in the eye area, to say the least
