Swollen Lower Eyelid Gland
I have repeated swollen eyelid gland that hurts, I bath them in hot water for a few days, this seems to cure it, only to return a week or so later?

It's good that their is response. Continue the warm compresses, lid hygiene with baby shampoo, gentle eyelid massage daily. Consider taking fish oil.

Doc said I have a blocked gland on my lower eyelid and to massage it. It's been two weeks and hasn't gone away. What other treatments can I do @home?
Chalazion: Is a blocked eyelid gland which forms a small lump inside the lid. If warm compresses don't help, occasionally a course of oral antibiotics will shrink the lump. If this doesn't help, then you may benefit from a minor procedure done in the office. A small amount of anesthetic is injected into the eyelid and the lump is opened from the inside surface of the lid. ...Read more

My lower eyelid is slightly swollen and itchy. What could be causing this? And what can I do to cure it?
My right lower eyelid is a bit swollen and hurts. Please advise what it can be and what should I use to fix. Thanks in advance.
Chalazion (stye): A distinct nodule with tenderness and redness of the lid is often a stye (chalazion). Warm compresses x 30 minutes 2 x/day often helps. Also, 1/2 cup of rice in a knee high pantyhose that is microwaved for 15 seconds (and testing on the skin to make sure it is not too hot) is useful. Recurrent chalazia or ones that do not respond to heat need to be seen by an ophthalmologist +/- biopsy. ...Read more

My son's lower eyelid is swollen. His doctor says it's a stye, but after 2 days of antibiotic it looks worse. Its painful to look down. Any ideas?
