Styes??: Warm compresses often help, but if there is swelling it's best to get checked to make sure there isn't an associated infection. Keep your hands off the area - as much as you may want to rub etc it only complicates the problem. See your doc to make sure that there isn't a bacterial infection that needs treatment. ...Read more

Warm compresses: We typically recommend RICE (rest, ice, compression & elevation) for injuries & warmth for infections. With pimples, consider applying warm compresses (someone once said that I should warn against burning yourself!) as often as tolerable. Idea is to increase blood flow (ice slows it down) & thus help fight off infection. If no better, gets worse or affects vision, see your doctor immediately ...Read more

Focal infection: In this location the most likely thing is a blocked lacrimal drainage system with focal infection of the lacrimal sac termed 'dacryocystitis'. Other soft tissue infections in that location are also possible but less likely. Have your ophthalmologist check this out. You will probably need an acceptable antibiotic and focal heat treatment. ...Read more

What: What you describe sounds like a chalazion or commonly known as a stye. Try placing a warm wash cloth on the lid three or four times daily. If the stye does not go away, there are other treatment options and surgical options you may discuss with your ophthalmologist.

Styes can also be associated with lid margin disease.

Lid margin disease is a common and frequently chronic inflammation of the eyelids. Symptoms include irritation, itching, and, occasionally, a red eye. This condition frequently occurs in people who tend to have oily skin, dandruff, or dry eyes.

Bacteria normally reside on the skin, but in some people, they thrive in the skin at the base of the eyelashes. Nearby oil glands may be overactive, causing dandruff-like scales and particles to form along the lashes and eyelid margins, which can cause redness, stinging, or burning.

Lid margin disease cannot be cured, but it can be controlled with a few simple, daily hygienic measures, such as the following:

at least twice a day, place a warm, wet washcloth over your closed eyelids for a minute. Rewet it as it cools, two or three times. This will soften and loosen scales and debris. More important, it helps liquefy the oily secretions from the eyelids’ oil glands, which helps prevent the development of a chalazion, an inflamed lump in an eyelid oil gland.
With your finger covered with a thin, wet washcloth, cotton swab, or commercial lint-free pad, gently scrub the base of the lashes for about 15 seconds per lid.
When medications are necessary, they may include:

artificial tears (over-the-counter eyedrops) to relieve symptoms of dry eye;
antibiotics (oral or topical) to decrease bacteria on the eyelids; and
steroids (short-term), to decrease inflammation.
Medications alone are not sufficient to control lid margin disease; the application of warmth and detailed cleansing of the lashes daily is the key. ...Read more
