I discovered a tiny lump on the inside of my upper eyelid quite a long time ago. However, I had no pain or anything. Lately, I have been having bad headaches, today I got a shooting pain in the eye and since then, it has been a little blurred just at the top where the lump is. I have also noticed the lump has gone blue.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
It seems a small marginal chalazion. A chalazion is a swelling formed due to blockage of lipid producing glands in eyelids. The good thing is mostly these are painless (except when it gets infected). In most cases, it resolves spontaneously. Sometimes, these may require an incision to drain out blocked secretions.
If it is painful, then you should visit your eye doctor and he might give you some antibiotics and NSAID. Warm compresses are also helpful. You are welcome for any queries. Have a nice day.
