Couldn't find what you looking for?


hello, i have a friend who has a lump on here eyelid. it is about the size of an asprin and it will some times get smalller, but it will always find its way back to its usual size. im asking for her because she always come to me for medical advice, because i am a nursing major, but i couldnt give her an answer this time. it dosent hurt her or seem to bother her other than its appearance. it is more hard than soft and it has no discoloration. what could it be?



My son and I would get that too, It looks like a blister and it looks as if it was going to burst. You get that from having the fan on all day in your eyes or the weather it all depends. If you don’t take care of that right away it will take a long time. On some people it goes away but you can still see what was left of that lump.

All she needs to do is put heat on it (Not to Hot ) and she needs to do this at night. She can use the tip of her finger and place it into the warm water than rub it against her eyelid. When she wakes up she will feel watery in her eyes and her eyelid is back to her size. There’s other ways but is harder to explain.



It could be a Sty (stye)
It could be an ingrown eyelash
It could be bacteria that has caused the pore to clog up and oil build up within
It could be a Chalazion.

Google Sty or Chalazion for more info.

If you use oily eye makeup remover, it's probably a closed pore with oil building up and can not get out. Be sure next time after you use the make up remover to use a soap and warm water so it doesnt clog another pore.

The BEST way to know for sure what it is, would be to see an OPTHAMOLOGIST (they are the ONLY ones that can do surgery, except for a plastic NOT waste time or money going to an optometrist or a regular doctor.

Tobrex can be applied and may help. But in many cases surgery is necessary, although you could have it re-occur so you really need to be careful about washing your eyelids more carefully OR if you sweat alot to wash well as soon as you can. Keep dirty fingers off your eye lids. Wash your hands often with anti bacterial soap.
