Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • There are different options to treat chalazion that depends on the location of chalazion and is there single or multiple.
  • If the patient has skin problems like acne, then they get multiple and recurrent chalazion.
  • The first general measures are lid hygiene and warm compresses. They help in pressing out the secretion. Actually, chalazion is an accumulation of meibomian gland secretion and inflammation.
  • For small chalazion, especially on the medial side steroid injection could be given. Sometimes, a second injection may be needed.
  • Another option is surgical incision and evacuation of contents. Then, antibiotic ointment, oral antibiotic and anti-inflammatory drugs will be given for about three to five days.
  • Please remember that the chalazion is recurrent and usually develop multiple times. If you have acne problem, then get treatment for that also.
