Stye Chalazion homeopathic treatment


Chalazion is a lump in the eyelid that is caused by inflammation of a gland within the skin. Typically, this lump grows over days to weeks and is occasionally red, warm, or painful. The gland involved in the formation of a chalazion is a modified sweat gland that lies within the eyelid. This gland produces oil. When this gland becomes blocked, it can rupture and the inflammation process begins. Inflammation is a process in which the body reacts to a condition and produces a biologic reaction. This reaction can cause swelling, redness, pain, or warmth. A chalazion is not a sty. A sty can resemble a chalazion in the sense that it is also a lump in the eyelid. However, a sty involves glands and eyelash hair follicles that are closer to the skin surface of the eyelid. In addition, a sty is usually more painful and looks infected. A chalazion is caused by the oil in the gland becoming too thick to flow out of the gland. This oil that is too thick blocks up the gland, but the gland still produces more oil. Without anywhere to go, the oil builds up inside the gland and forms a lump in the eyelid. Eventually, the gland ruptures (breaks open) and releases the oil into the tissue of the eyelid, causing inflammation Swelling of the upper eyelid may occur gradually over weeks. The condition rarely involves the lower eyelid. A chalazion appears as a localized hard lump that may grow as large as an eighth of an inch. Occasionally, you may feel pain and your eyelid may be red. Ophthalmologist may recommend surgery to remove the chalazion. Warm compresses may be helpful. Hold a warm, wet towel on the eyelid for 10-15 minutes, 2-4 times a day, to reduce swelling. Lightly massage the area several times a day. Do not “pop” or scratch the chalazion. Eye is an incomparable device responsible for vision or sight. Eyelids are the windshields or the gateway of the eye that works superbly in protecting, moistening and cleaning with the tear – the natural antiseptic lotion for guarding the eye against bacteria. Eyelids wipe the eye involuntarily with tears during blinking normally, around 4-6 times per minute. The eyelids are made up of skin, loose connective tissues, muscular tissues, tarsus (dense fibrous layer), fascia and conjunctiva. As like normal skin, eyelids do have sweat glands and hair roots. There are three types of glands present in the eyelids. Sweat glands present at the margin of eyelids are unusually large and called Glands of Moll. Sebaceous glands in hair root follicles are called as glands of Zei’s. Sebaceous glands in deeper layer tarsus are called as meibomian glands. Glands of Moll and Zei’s are superficial, so they are easily prone to infection and blockage of duct with cell debris and oil or sebum. The blockage duct makes swelling of the glands which are called as styes.
