NOT NOW BUT BEFORE IT FELT LIKE THERE WAS SOMETHING UNDER THE LID RIGHT KNOW ITS JUST SWOLLEN

<p>It could be a chalazion if there is no pain. If it pains, it is very likely to be a stye. It could also be a healing stye as the pain is gone. In both the conditions, I would recommend you to do hot fomentation 3 times a day. You should also apply an anti-biotic ointment over the lid. A course of oral anti-biotic like Augmentin could be helpful. Stye ususally clears in 4-5 days. Chalazion sometimes persists even after treatment. In that case, a minor surgery called incision and curreatge is usually curative. Steroid injection could be given in those who do not want surgery.</p><p> </p><p>Please, click the ACCEPT button so that I can get my dues. BONUS and a posittive feedback will be appreciated.
