Hot compresses: This may be a clogged meibomian gland, an oil producing part of the lid. Since this is an oil gland , hot compresses will help make the oil less thick and then drain. Get a moist washcloth heat it in the microwave until hot, place on over eye for 10 minutes. Repeat 3-4 times a day. If no improvement ina month or if getting bigger see a doctor.
