Management Of Pain Near The Eyelashes?

Hello Hijra Yana, thank you for asking.
Eyelashes are actually part of body hair. Eyelashes also have follicles such as head hair and other body hair. The follicles where the hair grows can become infected and become inflamed, called folliculitis. On the eyelids, hordeolum is often also found. Hordeolum is caused by a bacterial infection, generally staphylococcal bacteria.
In addition, there are many meibomian glands on the eyelids. The gland can become blocked, causing kalazion. Another possibility is blepharitis, which is inflammation of the eyelid. The symptoms of hordeolum, kalazion, blepharitis, can be similar. Symptoms include red eye, swelling in one or more upper or lower eyelids, watery eyes, pain, aches, or itching. Eyelid infections and blockages are more common in people who:
Rubbed his eyes often or held his face with dirty hands.
Use cosmetics, especially if the cosmetics are weak or contain components that cause allergies and irritation.
Do not clean eyes after using cosmetics.
Use dirty contact lenses.
Have chronic diseases, such as diabetes mellitus.
Generally, abnormalities in the eyelid can heal itself within 1-2 weeks. You can help with warm compresses periodically. Clean the eyes of cosmetics thoroughly. Avoid using cosmetics on the eyes and contact lenses first. Don't hold your face when you don't need to.
If after 2 or 3 weeks have passed, the symptoms have not improved, you should consult with an eye doctor. The doctor will assess whether or not an incision is needed. Afterwards the doctor will give an ointment to reduce inflammation.
Hopefully this answer is quite useful. Regards.
