I had mine removed last year with laser but they came back 8 months later but not in the lasered area.
I cut the root end off a garlic clove the same size as the Xantha and pricked the cut end with the point of a knife to encourage the garlic juice and then held it on the Xantha for as long as I could.
It is interesting to note that the Xanthalasmas appeared after two very stressful times in my life and my Dr thinks they are related.
I feel awful with it and think people must think I am really unhealthy to have such a revolting thing on my eye.
My only worry is how long it may take to either reduce or go altogether as I will not want to go about work with a red scabby eye.
Not to mention I was told I had another one that showed up on the other side under my eye.
I want to get rid of these without having to opt out for surgery since reading from some of the comments that they just come back anyway.
After each treatment the size of the deposit was reduced and finally dried up after 3 treatments.
It appeared to draw the fat to the surface which I removed with tweezers on the 3rd day.
I posted a similar problem with cholesterol deposits under a different header here.
My primary care physician told me he would remove it if it happened to be anywhere other than my eye area.

I tried the garlic thing for two times but I got nervous because the area became red.
I have Xanthoma for last 4 years im so scared to treat them as I have heard they came back.
I was a little bit upset because the scab was rather large after 3 applications and it took more than one week to disappear completely.
I had never heard of Xanthoma but from your description I thought that this might be what I had under my eyes a long time ago.
I had a laser treatment in Holland but it is as if they are still there only I think that now I have only the scars.
But I have seen other people who have had them chemically burned who look like this.
I am so pleased with the condition of my skin and so embarrassed by these horrid fat deposits.
If it works and the xanthomas return I know I can return to this easy and inexpensive remedy.
Decided I will just have to live with it unless it should interfere with my eyesight.
It was swollen and red and my skin was open and I was scared to put more garlic on the open area.
Right after I removed the garlic slice I could really tell that the Xantelasmas were flatter.
But I guess I should have continued the regimen but the way I looked was making me really worried and nervous and I thought that it might not have been a good idea to try the garlic cure.
It took 3 weeks to heal but after 3 weeks the Xanthelasma was flatter and smaller.
I did a second round with crushed garlic for 3 days and that really burned like acid.
First looked like it was small scar tissue and it was a little spot under one eye.
After reading this post I am hopeful that I found a cheap solution and applied the fresh garlic to both eyes.
I would say 2 days are enough as I burned my skin due to the third day and it burned like hell.
It takes approx a week before the skin can become back to normal with slight roughness in skin remaining.
What I can see is that this builds a layer of skin above the xanthed area and therefore the Xanth gets completely hidden below the layers.
Evedently I had a hidden stone blow through one of my bile ducts and ended up in the hospital.
Mine has scabbed over so badly that I refuse to leave home until the scabs diminish somewhat.
The scab over the left eye has come off and sad to report there has been no change.
I have had xanthelasma on my eyelids many years and have tried virtualy everything on the market including garlic without success.
It occured to me a few months ago that in this day and age that apart from cosmetic surgery which costs an absolute fortune that there is not an ointment cure for this condition.
I embarked on my own crusade to find my own cure for this condition and I think I may have found a way to decrease it or hopefully eliminating it completely using as near to natural herbs as I could.
My xanthelasma has certainly decreased with my findings but I will not know for certain for a few weeks yet as they are still a bit scabby but it is looking very good as the yellow has not appeared under the new skin.
When you use the garlic you need to immediately start putting vaseline on the area to control the drying and scabbing.
I might suggest you find something else for dry skin like raw unprocessed coconut oil.
I also tried a method years ago of poking a sterile needle in one end and massaging it.
I had a very decent job with good salary but still got refusals from guys due to these marks.
Once again I started looking me in the mirror and feel happy like I did years back.
I am suffering of xanthoma since past 8 years and now I have three of them and fourth one is apearing on side of my right eye.
I will do my right eye soon I gather the strength for pain and burning sensation.
I also developed these horrible things after having my gallbladder removed 3 years ago and have always thought there was a connection.
Just a quick note to let you all know that xanthomas will dissappear by themselves if you treat your high cholesterol with meds and also reduce fat intake in your foods.

This is important so that they can verify whether the change remains in its original state in the final product or whether it undergoes significant chemical changes causing it to loose its original properties.
What they disagreed on is about the change that is resulted by an action from humans such as heating the alcohol or putting salt or other chemicals.
They sight the case where wine turns into vinegar loosing all its former properties thus making it permissible for Muslims to use because there is a change in the state of wine.
Hanbal schools are of the opinion that vinegar made from alcohol is prohibited and there is no change in its impurity.
Hanafi and some of the Maliki schools sanction the use of alcohol provided that it has undergone complete chemical change.
They are no more considered as the original material from which they are derived.
Ibn Kathir first explained suht generally as anything unlawful or derived from unlawful means.
Ibn Abidin based his comments on the saying of Al Hasafki regarding the manufacturing of vinegar made from wine.
Hasafki says that dust and smoke particles rising from burnt human or animal excrement cannot be judged impure.
The same thing with wine which is different from vinegar and human being is different from the blood from which he is created.
The same thing is true of a pure thing changing into impure thing such as juice becoming wine or the wine becoming vinegar.
The excretion and the wine used as fertiliser or becoming a fruit and so many other things.
He bestowed upon people that a healthy pure animal product comes out of these impure things.
A very complex chemical procedure is undertaken to extract the gelatine from its raw stage and make it usable for consumption and otherwise.
A detail follows on how gelatine is extracted from animal hides in 8 different stages to form the final product.
The hides are then sent through various machines which remove traces of meat from underneath the hide and then split the hide horizontally into a number of thin sheets.
This is drained off once at certain strengths and then fresh hot water is added at a higher temperature to give another extraction.
The first stage is filtration and the final stage is through a 2 micron filter to give a solution of high clarity.
It is insoluble in cold water but swells and softens when immersed gradually absorbing 5 to 10 times its own mass of water.
In hot water it dissolves to form a thick colloidal mucilage which forms a jelly on cooling.
Alkaline treatment tends to remove amide groups present on certain amino acid residues on the collagen protein chains resulting in a lowering of the isoelectric point and consequently an alteration not a transformation of the chemical and physical properties of the protein occurs.
Despite the above method of changing a raw product into gelatine under tremendous chemical pressure still retains much of its chemical equation.
The collagen triple helix structure is lost during this procedure but the resultant Gelatine product retains the original coil structure.
If a comparable medication is available in tablet or liquid form it would be advisable to ask for them instead of taking capsules.
In the area of food we have such a vast selection of products whereby foregoing a certain brand containing Gelatine should pose no problem.
In the UK it is a legal requirement to list ingredients in products and a reference to this guide will indicate what can be consumed or not.
Muslim countries as well as local associations should provide finances to initiate and promote research to develop alternate forms to Gelatine to overcome this problem.
