I have a lump on the top of my left eyelid, what’s the cause? Is it really a dust allergy?

1 Answer:

Hi Tanti,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Allergies can indeed trigger uncomfortable sensations in the eyes. This uncomfortable sensation can arise from conjunctivitis, which is inflammation of the clear membrane of the eye. Complaints that arise can include itchy, watery, red eyes, and feel like a lump.

However, allergies alone should not cause a lump that is clearly palpable on the inner eyelid. So, maybe your complaint arises due to other causes.

It is necessary to first clarify exactly what the characteristics of the lump you are referring to, how large it is, soft or hard, painful or not, and any other complaints that arise along with it.

Here are some possible causes of lumps on the inside of the eyelids as you experience:

Hordeolum (stye); caused by inflammation of the glands in the eyelids, namely Meibom's glands, Zeis glands, or Moll Blefaritis glands (inflammation of the eyelids); caused by bacterial infection, or also inflammation of other skin, for example rosacea, Kalazion's seborrheic dermatitis; fluid-filled sacs (cysts) that form in the glands of the Meibom Pinguecula (eye acne); Overgrowth of the conjunctiva that occurs due to eye exposure to dry air and excessive sunlight. Corpus alienum (entering a foreign object into the eye) Cancer, etc. Subsequent treatment can vary, ranging from limited observation, drug administration, to surgery.

Meanwhile, if the lump is painful, you can first compress it using warm water. Avoid pressing too often on the lump, especially breaking it forcibly. Protect your eyes from being exposed to pollution, sunshine, and excessive dry air, for example by wearing protective glasses if necessary.

Hope this helps ..
