or I have a lump. I checked at the health center and they said I had a chalazion and needed surgery. but my eye can not be operated because the lump is close to the eye canal. What drugs can be used / how to treat them?

1 Answer:

Hi Sylvia, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. A chalazion is a lump that appears as a result of an inflammatory process that occurs near the tear duct on the eyelid. These lumps usually occur because there is a blocked oil gland. This lump is generally located in the middle of the eyelid, red but not painful.


Surgery is one way to treat Chalazion, but not the only one. Chalazion can also be treated with antibiotic drops or ointment, steroids, or with warm compresses on the affected eye for 15 minutes 2-4 times a day.


But of course some types of Chalazion require surgery as the only way, as in Chalazion that continues to grow large or does not improve with non-operative treatment. So our advice is that you get your eyes checked again, and this time to an ophthalmologist so you can have a wider range of options. In the meantime, you can compress your eye, not rub or touch the lump, and rest your eye. I hope you and your family are always healthy.


That's all, hope it helps.
