Heat pack it: It may be still inflamed. Please use heat pack for 3-5 mins 2-3x per day. Please also wash your lashes with baby shampoo. It may take a few weeks or less.

I would have the lesion resected by your local ophthalmologist and make sure to have a biopsy done to rule out malignancy. It is unlikely, but possible that this could be a malignant lesion.

Possible: Try treating it with warm compresses 3-4 times per day. If it does not clear up in 2 weeks, make an appointment with an ophthalmologist.
