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?

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.

Stye or fatty tumor: You did not specify where. If it is at the edge of the upper or lower eyelid, it's probably a stye. If it is soft and overlying the eyebrow, it is probably a fatty tumor, which is harmless. To know for sure, you should see your doctor. ...Read more

I have a lump on my upper right eyelid. Do chalzions eventually go away on their on with time?

No: They need some treatment. Hot compresses with a moist wash cloth for 10 minutes 4-6 times a day will help it drain. If large however it is best to have it drained by a simple procedure done in the office. The hot compresses will take time for it to resolve, we are talking about a month or more. ...Read more
