Tearduct blockage with a clear big cyst on it.It's the tearduct by lamcratial gland not the tearduct where tears flow out.It's the other side.Eye ache?
Ache: Is it near this site.? The eye lids have an opening called punctuate to allow tear to drain. The tear go though canalicua then to the laccimal sack. This has an opening where the tears drain under the inferior turbinate in the nose. A blocked tear duct is usually not painful unless infected. Have this examined! ...Read more
Pilonidal sinus cyst removed a year ago. The scar gets 'pimple like' heads with a lot of pus and weeps. Causes a rash & discomfort.
Nose hit with car door yesterday. What are the signs of a septal hematoma? Pink, painful swollen area next to septum. See a doc? Feels zit like..
Yes, go see your doc: Ouch! If you know an ENT, go see him/her. Failing that, your Family Doc can refer you to an ENT. Just to be clear, this incident was just an accident and no one else was around?

My top tear duct is swollen and slightly painful to touch. There's no discharge and my eye isn't watery. Could this just be a blocked tear duct?
Chalazion: These are very common. Use warm compresses to your eye 4 times a day for 15 minutes each. After a few weeks, it should completely resolve. One thing to watch out for is infection, which may cause draining of pus, or fevers and chills. If it gets this bad, you need to seek medical attention. Hang in there!! ...Read more
Inner left eye is painful to the touch and when blinking near the tear duct. I'm getting over a sinus cold. Any connection? Suggestions?
Most likely...: If you are suffering of an upper respiratory tract infection the possibility of getting symptoms in any part of your upper respiratory area( throat, ears, eyes, sinus..)might develop a secondary infection.This sounds it might be a stye so try to use warm compresses three times a day, drink plenty of fluids and rest during this season of illness.

Anyone with a stye like thing on your eye during pregnancy. It is a small red lump/spot near my tear duct. I've been prescribed fusidic acid ointment?
I have a large lump on my sclera. It can't be seen by inverting the eyelid, and doesn't respond to pataday, tears, or compresses. It is solid and hurt?
Can a chalazion occur without a stye and/or internal hordeolum? I have had no inflammation; however, suddenly feel a 2mm size nodule in the upper lid
Yes: Some Chalazia simply appear without a symptomatic precursor although a stye must have occurred without causing symptoms. ...Read more
Inner corner of my right eye is sore and if i pull it a little, the inner corner is reddish and there is a yellowish bump. Not a blocked tear duct. ?
Normal tissue: In the nasal corner of each eye is a fold of tissue called the caruncle. It often appears yellow due to underlying fat. This tissue is normal. The tear ducts are in the eyelids, and if they are blocked, the swelling is in the skin between the eyelids and the nose. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Lots of options: There is no one best option. What you want to use is an artificial tear drop or, if the condition is more severe, gel. The types with "get the red out" medicine i advise against. In mild dry eye, i usually recommend a 3 times a day schedule, regardless of symptoms. If that isn't sufficient, you can increase it. Persistent symptoms despite frequent use should prompt a visit to an ophthalmologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
