I swear every time I put warm wet (NOT HOT) compresses, my eyelids/meibomian glands only get worse and more thick!! I'm so frustrated what do I do!!
Hot compresses. Be patient.Sometimes the problem that you are treating is so chronic that the body(eyelid problem) has so much inflammation in it that even the proper treatment can aggravate the underlying inflammation. Go a little slower for awhile or even skip 1 day and let your treatments allow the inflammation decrease on their own for 1-2 days, then resume but maybe use less pressure/rubbing (be gentle)

Warm compress. if the warmth is frustrating you then use the ice route instead. Put a wet wash cloth in an ice bath and then squeeze out the access then refresh in 5 to 10 minutes. Your ice bath can be a pot or a large bowl with lots of ice. Settle down, this problem will pass. See the doctor in the am for appropriate antibiotics if not better. Read more...
