I went to bed about a week ago and woke up and saw that I developed some type of a stye in the eye. But I am not very sure. I do not know what it is. It is still about the same size. What to do?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
You have not mentioned the site of the lesion. Probably it is present on the inner side of the eyelid. And based on your details, the Differential diagnosis are:
Stye:- So basically, it could be a superficial bacterial infection in the eyelid. Usually, a stye like lesion heals in a week without any specific treatment, and pain is present in stye.
Chalazion:- In chalazion, pain is not present and it can remain for more than a week.
So, you should consult a nearby ophthalmologist for examination of the lesion. If it is stye or chalazion, then in the eyelid, a red lesion will be present. Mostly you will be given a topical antibiotic ointment along with topical antibiotic drops.
I suggest you try doing the following:
With keeping all this in mind, consult a nearby ophthalmologist for examination. Hope your concern is solved. Take care.
