Bumps On The Eyelids That Have Been Getting Bigger For 2 Months?
Hello doctor, on the inside of my eye, to be precise on the lower eyelid, inside, there is a lump like a red stye that is getting bigger and bigger, and this has been going on for 2 months, instead of getting smaller but instead getting bigger, is this dangerous for you? my eyes? Then how to solve it? That is all and thank you
Thanks for the question. Bumps that appear on the eyelids can be caused by:
Stye or hordeolum, is a lump that appears on the eyelid like a boil that can be accompanied by complaints of watery eyes, red eyes, and red and swollen eyelids.
Chalazion is a lump on the eyelid due to malfunction of the Meibomian glands in the eyelashes. This condition generally occurs in the upper eyelid that occurs for a prolonged period (chronic).
Both of these lumps can be treated at home if the lump is still small by applying warm compresses to the lump. However, if this lump has enlarged and has been occurring for 2 months, you should consult an ophthalmologist for further treatment. Usually the doctor will need to make a small incision in this lump and remove the contents of the lump. If not cleaned, these lumps do not heal easily.
For a while, you can apply a warm compress to this lump. Avoid popping these bumps and avoid rubbing the sore eye.
Hope this information is useful.
