If you wake up one morning and notice a small swelling or lump on your eyelid, don’t worry too much. It may just be due to a blocked gland. Chalazia are more likely to appear on your upper eyelid, though they sometimes show up on the lower eyelid. You might get them in both eyes at once.
Chalazia often go away in days or weeks without treatment. One home remedy is to apply warm, moist heat to the area. Your doctor or nurse can give you instructions. Make sure you know how long and how often you should do this. If the more simple treatments don’t work, your doctor may prescribe medicines, recommend shots, or give you injections to clear up the problem.
