I Have A Lump On My Eyelid
My cat had roundworms. Now I have a lump on my eyelid like a stye but it looks like there is a thin wiggly line coming from it. Could it be roundworm?
Doubtfully: I recommend performing hot compresses 3-4 times per day for 10' each, followed by gentle eyelid massage over the bump. If this is a stye, it will ordinarily resolve with this conservative treatment. It's very unlikely that you have a round worm infection of the eyelid.

Chalazia how long does it take to heal?? Months? Coz i have a red small lump in my eyelid for 4 months now.. And its getting bigger than before.
I have a painless hard lump in my eyelid that hasn't gone away with antibiotic eye drops, or occasional heat compresses. What could this be?
