OK. I have had a very small inclusion cyst develop on my lower left eyelid for 8 (!) years. It's been noticable for the last 3 (about 2-3 mm). I've gone to two opthamologists and they both said the same thing: If it doesn't hurt, don't do anything. If it bothers you, you can have it excised. So, I finally set up an appt. to have it excised in 2 weeks as I've noticed people over the past year occasionally looking at it.
This morning, I noticed something strange...almost like it had come to a small head. As I stretched the eyelid, a thick yellow substance came out (keratin, I presume). I was extremely careful to try to get as much out as possible by stretching (not squeezing) it.
It wasn't painful. Now, it appears like it's gone, save for perhaps what might be a very small bit of keratin inside the cyst (a small clear liquid pinpoint drop was all I could get out after the yellow keratin came out). I applied hydrogen peroxide
carefully to the opening (with a Q-Tip) to prevent infection AFTER I had applied warm compresses to the area.
So, what additional treatment should I be doing and should I really see the doctor, given that it doesn't appear as big (even though that wall is likely in there, meaning it could build up with keratin again). Thank you!
