I'm really grateful to have found this site and forum with so much useful, detailed information. I have a small BCC on lower left eyelid, rather close to the tear duct. Currently, I'm treating it with Cymilium, orange oil, eggplant/apple cider vinegar and frankincense and it does seem to be shrinking. As it's so close to the eye and tear duct, I can only apply very small amounts without getting a strong reaction from the eye.

Question: Is it a good idea to keep the lesion covered with a small bandaid all the time? I note when it's covered, it tends to weep.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

I also have a small lesion under my left lower eye lid...I am using acetic acid (The acid in vinegar) @ 40% solution VERY Carefully to knock this one out..I use the point of a make up brush to dab a litlle on it every 4 or 5 hours each day ...the fumes make my eyes tear up ...another option is using a q-tip to apply....just be very careful with whatever you choose to apply to the lesion ..I don't think covering is necessary...multiple applications daily till it is gone is the best way to eradicate them...
