I have a hard,white bump on left side of my face, under my eye, what is it?

I have a white bump on left side of face under my eye. It looks like whitehead but nothing to squeeze out .I have had it for about 6 months. It is somewhat hard to the touch. I am wondering if somebody can tell me what it is and if it appears to be something I should see a dermatologist for.

Hi. You might have something called milia.  I've had this before too.  They usually go away on their own. But it is hard to wait, isn't it?  You can always get it checked out by your doctor.  Here is info. https://www.healthline.com/health/skin-disorders/how-to-get-rid-of-milia.  You could try steam in order to open it up.  Exfoliating and retinol cream may also help.  Try not to pick or poke it.
