Small bump in my eyelid? I have had this small bump in my right eyelid for about 2-3 months, after my previous stye went away. What should I do?

You : You should see an ophthalmologist. Typical conservative treatment involves warm compresses and antibiotic drops such as Azasite antibiotic drops, which seem to penetrate the lid tissue, may be useful. If there is significant inflamation, oral antibiotics may be useful as well. The bump is probably an chalasion, which is a swelling in the eyelid from a blockage in the meibomian gland, that secretes meibomian fluid as part of the tear solution. If the bump is not going away, a quick surgical procedure in the office can usually resolve the problem. ...Read more

Probably stye: Styes are accumulation of greasy oily material in the eyelids that occur when the eyelid oil glands become plugged up. Why this happens is unknown, but it is a fairly common problem. If the stye is small it will usually respond to application of warm compresses. If it becomes enlarged and swollen then it may require surgical drainage. An eye examination would be prudent. ...Read more

See your eye special: ist to make sure you don't have an internal stye developing known as a chalazion that is a plugged meibomian gland. You can try to decompress it by using warm compresses for 15 minutes 4 times a day. If that doesn't help, you will need to see your eye doctor, who can drain it, by lancing it carefully to open the gland punta better. See if you can do the compresses now. ...Read more
