What is chalazion?

A chalazion is a small bump in the eyelid caused by a blockage in the oil glands known as meibomian glands in the eyelid. A chalazion is characteristically painless, slowly increasing nodule on the eyelid. The meibomian glands are the glands that produce the fluid that lubricates the eye.

A chalazion usually develops secondary to blockage in a meibomian gland because of an infection, such as a meibomian stye (internal hordeolum) or rarely, an abnormal growth, such as a tumor.

What are the signs and symptoms?

Chalazion presents itself by following signs and symptoms:

• Painful swelling on the eyelid.

• Eyelid is tender to touch.

• Sensitivity to light.

• Increased tear formation

What is the cause of Chalazions?

A chalazion usually develops due to blockage in a meibomian gland because of an infection, such as a meibomian stye (internal hordeolum) or rarely, an abnormal growth, such as a tumor.

Chalazion are more commonly seen in people with inflammatory conditions like seborrhea, acne, rosacea, chronic blepharitis, or long-term inflammation of the eyelid.

Can a chalazion be permanent?

No, A chalazion is not a tumor or growth and it does not cause permanent changes in your vision. A chalazion is very common and usually goes away without any surgery.

Can chalazion burst?

A chalazion can burst sometimes through the skin or through the inner lining of your eyelid, causing a mucous discharge. A hot compression may help with the discomfort and helps to drain.

What is the difference between a chalazion and a stye?

A stye usually forms along the outer side of the eyelid, though sometimes it can form on the inner side. A stye can cause the eyelid to become swollen, even cracked. A chalazion can grow bigger than a stye, as big as a pea.

What’s inside a chalazion?

A chalazion is a benign, painless bump or nodule inside the upper or lower eyelid. Chalazion is mostly resulted from healed internal styes that no longer are infectious. These cystic nodules form around an oil gland (meibomian) within the eyelid, resulting in red, swollen eyelids

How do you treat a chalazion at home?

Hold a warm compress on your affected eyelid for 15 minutes, four times a day. This will encourage drainage of the gland. The warm compress can be a towel soaked in warm water or an electric heating pad or blanket.

What are the homeopathic medications for chalazion?

• Gelsemium

• Staphisagria

• Silicea

• Graphites

• Conium

• Thuja
