    Janice, I wouldn't use Bragg apple cider vinegar to treat your chalazion.  Doctors recommend using warm wet tea bags for 10 minutes, three or four times a day.  They can take weeks to go away.

      Hi Evelyn just seen this . Thank you for replying ! I do just that with the warm compresses! I was going to make my next appt. with the surgeon that did my cateract surgery last August. Looking at pics on internet I saw it called chalazion. My regular opthomologist didn’t say what it was , just to use the warm compresses. So u think it will go away soon. What in the world causes it? Thanks again for your support!

    janice, you have to be patient because it took weeks for my chalazions to go away.  I also had a prescription ointment for my eyes.  Good luck!!
