OKThat is the eyelid, not the labia.Thought you were talking about the labia.In this case, warm compresses.Since this has been over a month, you need to see an opthalmologist.There is nothing else you need to do in the meantime. please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent—that’s how we are paid, per rating].
