In brief: Chalazion treatment

Continue to do hot compress on the eye at least twenty minutes twice daily until the swelling subsides.

Maybe even more if stubborn, as more is better in this case to open those glands up to drain!

In brief: Use warm compresses

is best! Every time that a meibomian gland is destroyed, it reduces the availability of those left.
You want to avoid dry eyes, as those glands help lubricate the tear film. So take preventive care of them. If you have ocular rosacea, treat that to prevent further problems.
