Small bruises can look a little green as they resolve, but they generally go away without any treatment, assuming the needle caused the bruise.

Gland swelling at below right eye lid. No pain, but it is red. What is the remedy for it. One doctor prescribed for surgery treatment.

Gland swelling at below right eye lid. No pain, but it is red. What is the remedy for it. One doctor prescribed for surgery treatment.

Wait!: There are small glands (meibomian glands) on the inside of the eyelids that secrete a lubricant & can sometimes get blocked up and swell. But there are no glands below the eyelids. If you don't have eye pain, redness or loss of vision, then watchful waiting for a few days is safer than immediate but possibly unnecessary surgery.

Often, : Often, a series of hot compresses during the day will work, with shorter duration for each compress. Many of my patients have success with 3 or 4 compresses, 5-10 minutes each session. The potato works well, some patients have mentioned that they have used a hard-boiled egg the same way. This holds heat longer than using a washcloth alone. If this does not work within a week or so, then eye drops, or surgical removal will be successful. See your eye doctor if compresses fail! ...Read more

If : If you have not done so already please see your doctor. You could be dealing with a throat infection (pharyngitis), bronchitis, ear infection, and/or allergies. You may need antibiotics. In the meantime you can try over the counter Mucinex (guaifenesin) to thin the phlegm and make it easier to cough up and out, and Ibuprofen for pain. I hope you are better soon. ...Read more
