Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
ok. did you read my question?
It sounds like you may have a plugged tear duct that is forming an early chalazion.
ok. so i should do what for it?
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, put the 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.
Does this make sense to you?
yes. will this make area redder inside there?
No. But it might get a bit bigger and redder before it gets better :(
oy. i need to use my thera tears still though. ok with that?
so this doesn't sound like a rosacea problem. glad to hear that.
you cannot see anything by looking at me. have to pull lower lid down to see this.
It can be related to rosacea and blepharitis but I don't wouldn't say that it is the rosacea coming back right now.
ok. thank you so much. have been worried. not easy being somewhere that you no "no one or have doctors, etc". appreciate the help. baby shampoo for me.
My pleasure. Have a good Year.
