I have what looks like a tiny cyst on my lower eyelid, right near the lashes. I used to use an eye pencil, and I think I may have infected an oil gland or hair follicle. It has been there for about six months, doesn't bother me particiularly, but I do know that that particular eye has always been more sensitive than the other. I use baby wipes to remove eye make up, but haven't worn makeup for some time. It is possible that the eye pencil or mascara has become infected. I have thrown out all my older mascaras, and will invest in a new eye pencil, but not the type that I used previously, which you had to use a sharpener a it resembled a conventional pencil.
Have been to optician who says eye health and cornea is healthy. Visited my doctor's surgery, and a nurse advised that it was a stye. I used to have a lot of styes when I was in my teens, and it is not ike those, because they grew, developed a yellow pus and burst, and then cleared up. The nurse said that the stye has become infected, and recommended applying hot compresses to the area, whch I have been doing for the last three days with no noticeable change. I dont think it is a chalazion. Pretty sure that something has become blocked causing an infection.
Any suggestions. please?
