A Chalazion on the eyelid is a common problem....

A Chalazion is a cyst on the eyelid caused by inflammation of a blocked oil gland on the eyelid. Chalazions are quite common and usually disappear on their own within 3-4 weeks. The eyelid, near the lashline, becomes red, tender, and swollen. Initially the eyelid is tender but the tenderness usually dissipates after a few days. The lump continues to grow until the oil inside is released. Once the chalazion releases the oil, the inside of the eye can become reddened due to the irritation of the released oil. Applying warm compresses for 10-15 minutes 4-5 times daily can help expedite healing. Massaging the eyelid in a smooth, circular motion while applying the heat can also speed the release of the oil. If the chalzion is painful after the first few days or does not resolve itself within 3 weeks, please seek help from an ophthalmologist. In rare instances, the chalaion may have to be lanced or antibiotics given.
