A Pus-filled Lump In The Upper Left Eye?
Good night. Sorry to disturb.rnThe disease that I am experiencing now has been repeated for a period of 3 months, often causing lumps in the eyes. You could say routine disease in my eyes. I usually use tea bags to compress my eyes. However, it has been three months since the lump in the eye, around the top and right lower eye, the lump has hardened and hasn’t gone down yet.rnWhat steps should I take?rnThanks
A lump in the eye can be so annoying, especially when it causes pain. The lump in the eye usually occurs around the eyelids, which can be caused by inflammation in the area. Some of the common causes can include:
inflammation of the eyelids or blepharitis
inflammation of the oil glands and eyelashes, namely hordeoulum (the layman calls it a stye), usually due to infection
inflammation in the same area as the hordeolum, without being caused by infection (eg due to blockage), is called a chalazion
Long-term inflammation usually causes cysts, this occurs in chalazions. And generally this condition requires treatment in the form of minor surgery in the eye to overcome the existing lump. At this time, what we can recommend is to directly consult an ophthalmologist to find out the actual condition of your eyes, along with the existing treatments. Here we attach an article about chalazion. Hope it is useful.
