How To Cure Chalazion Naturally
I have had a chalazion for 6 weeks. I tried applying hot compresses but not disappearing. My doctor won't help unless it gets bigger. How can I cure it?
Lump in lid: When you get a stye, the body activates a defense, creating inflammation of the lid. In most cases the battle is won and all clears up. But in a few cases, the body almost wins but protects itself by sealing off the infection with a wall which is a cystic structure called a chalazion. These are benign, can last along time and can be removed if too big. Read more
Try heat: This is one of the end products of the lids battle to remove a stye in which it walls off the infected tissue. Frequent applications of very hot washcloths can sometimes get rid of it. Otherwise, if it is obvious and bothersome, your ophthalmologist can remove it in a minor office procedure. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Bacteria: When your eyelashes become colonized with bacteria, the bacteria likes to go into the oil glands of your eyelids. The bacteria then causes a blockage of the gland and a chalazion starts to form. Washing your eyelashes daily with baby shampoo is 85% effective of preventing recurrence of chalazia. Sometimes people need either topical or oral antibiotics to help. Decolonization is key. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
