Hello, Thank you for the question.I am Dr.A.S.Desai and I look forward to assisting you .
Are you available for chat now?
Is the swelling noticed only in the left eyelids?
only in the left, yes
sorry for the delay.......
One of the possibilities is that of meibomitis or posterior blepharitis. It is a kind of non-specific inflammation of the meibomian glands ( modified sebaceous glands present in the eyelids).
It can treated effectively with the help of few simple home remedies which are very effective .
Okay, is there a way to avoid the swelling in the future too?
Do you have known history of recurrent acne or dandruff?
Minor in both cases yes. Like most would usually at my age.
Okay. In that the above mentioned home remedies should be sufficient.
in that case
You must continue with these measures for about 3-4 weeks before you begin to notice the improvement.
Okay, well then. I appreciate the help.
