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. If you are concerned, have an eye md check your eyelid. ...Read more

However, if the whole lid becomes diffusely swollen and tender, then it is probably infected (cellulitis), and this should be promptly treated, usually with oral and topical antibiotics. Sometimes allergies could cause lid swelling, but not usually just on one side. ...Read more

Chalazion keeps popping and growing back. Now looks like a part has broke off and formed a small lump higher up in eyelid near the socket crease. Help?

Several events: A chalazion is the end product of an inflammation of the lid termed a stye. If the body does not conquer it completly it can wall it off making a cyst called a chalazion. There are many lid glands each of which can do this so its probably not a part break off but a new event. You are in a phase of formation of these and should get the advice of an ophthalmologist the treat and prevent them. ...Read more
