Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I can help you tonight. Does your daughter wear contact lenses? Does her eye hurt?
No she does not wear contact lens. Yes she still has pain on the inner side of her eyelid.
Is this limited to one eyelid? For example the upper lid or the lower?
yes it is the upper lid. The pain seems to be very localised in the area she saw the pus - the upper area of the lid close to the nose. The skin on the outside of the lid looks quite red, almost bruised.
Sounds like a chalazion. They can be pretty painful and cause a lot of swelling. Antibiotics are not the treatment of choice for this condition.
The most common cause for an isolated bump on the eyelid is a chalazion or a stye. These bumps form when a gland in your eyelid gets plugged up and possibly infected. It is very often associated with a condition called blepharitis.
The treatment for this condition, however, is not antibiotics but rather cleaning the eyelids with baby shampoo. Buy some unscented baby shampoo and, in the shower, but th shampoo on your index fingers. Close your eyes, and raise your eyelids (to get skin out of the way) and scrub back and forth along your EYELASH margin. This is where the gland openings are located. The warm water will soften the gunk in the plugged glands, the friction and pressure of your fingers will massage the glands, forcing the gunk out and the shampoo will wash it away. You can also use warm compress to the affected lids during the day as your schedule allows.
This treatment will help to treat the bump on your eyelid while at the same time solving your underlying blepharitis. The lump may take many weeks to go away but you should notice some improvement in a few days or so.
You should also have her use warm compresses during the day, the more often the better. It should start hurting less in a day or so.
