Why Don’t The Lumps On My Eyelids Go Away?
, my eyes were initially swollen and sore about three days ago because they were getting bigger, finally I went to the doctor and was given an allergy medicine, Paracetamol and eye ointment after a few days finally my eyes were not swollen anymore, but there was a lump in the eyelid that did not go away even though I had used ointment every day, because it did not hurt I finally let it go until about a year ago this lump that like timbil became frequent itching and pain sometimes clearly visible lumps and red. Then I went to the ophthalmologist again and finally had a small operation, removed the contents of the lump, one week after that I also had control again to the doctor, and the doctor said it was okay, but after that why the lump did not disappear even after removing the contents huh? ? Even though it was almost two weeks after the operation, and I was also diligent in taking medication and using the eye ointment that was given?
Thank you for the question.
The appearance of bumps on the reddish eyelids, often itchy, swollen, even painful, and does not go away even after surgery may be caused by:
Hordeolum (nodules, inflammation of the oil glands in the eyelid)
Kalazion (Meibomian gland cyst)
Folliculitis (inflammation of hair root due to infection)
Other factors, such as benign or malignant tumors, blepharitis, roseola, seborrheic dermatitis, skin tags, hyperkeratosis, insect bitten, etc.
Lumps like this are actually not always dangerous. But if it is true that these lumps are often inflamed and do not go away even though optimal treatment has been done by a doctor, you should be more vigilant. Go back and check with your doctor or optometrist to ascertain the exact condition that triggered your complaint. If necessary, the doctor can recommend that you undergo a biopsy examination to make it clear which steps need to be taken.
For now, it's better not to worry. Simply follow the recommendations for treatment that your doctor recommends. Also keep your eye area clean after the operation. Don't overuse cosmetics or eye, face and other scalp care products around the eyes. Don't use contact lenses first before your doctor says it's safe for you to do it. If the lump is inflamed, you can first compress your eyes with cold water to reduce inflammation. Do not forget, always wash your hands with antiseptic soap when going into contact with the area around the eyes.
Hope this helps ...
