Syringomas are benign skin spots that arise from the drainage ducts of sweat glands in your skin. The benign bumps usually do not cause any symptoms, but someone who has them often experiences them as cosmetically disturbing. They look like small, yellowish or skin-coloured bumps. Often there are several bumps together and usually in the face. There, they are mainly found under the eyes, the upper part of the cheeks, or on the lower eyelid.
It is unknown what causes syringomas. It often develops during puberty, usually in girls/women. It is probably linked to hormones. Syringomas often occur in several people within one family, so the hereditary factor also plays a role.Frequently asked questions about syringomas
