... On October 18th, 2009 I noticed what looked like a zit on my right upper eyelid below my eyebrow. So I squeezed it but it instantly got larger, redder, and swollen. I saw my family doctor who thought it was a stye/chalizon and reffered me to an opthamologist but he said it was not a stye, chalizion, cyst, etc. as there is no fluid/pus inside it. My regular doctor said he... (2 replies)
... It is likely a blocked oil gland, a milder form of a stye. Treatment for styes and similar lumps are with warm compresses to soften the material inside and allow it to self drain. Do this 3-4 times a day.

... Hi guys, thanks for the responses.
I posted this a while ago now. I finally got my doctor to refer me to a specialist.
He froze my eye, flipped and clamped my eyelid over, and removed it from the inside. He said it was called a "compound chalazion." He tossed the "junk" into the garbage, so I didn't see how much came out. It bled a bit. I wore a patch over the eye... (4 replies)

... Hi there :)
Sorry to hear your eye is causing you problems!
Do you mean there is something in your eye, or a swelling on the inside of your eyelid?
Search on the internet the words "chalazion" or "stye" -- is this what it looks like?

... You probably have the start of a chalazion (stye). You need to use hot compresses several times throughout the day to see if it helps it clear up. If you start to develop mattering in your eye then you need to see an eye doctor as that is an indication of an infection which you will need an antiobiotic for.
Good luck. (1 replies)
