    Do you have a pic? Im wondering why you feel it is not a stye? However if it is not a stye it can be a concretion. Which is basically a calcium deposit. Does it hurt? If it is a concretion your eye doctor can easily remove it.

      Hi thanks for your reply. It does not hurt. I looked when I wondered that it might be an eyelash. But seen this red lump in lower left eye inside my eyelid. Not on my eyelid. Been using hot compresses on it as per google search. I did go to my ophthalmologist and she actually didn’t know but told me to use hot compresses. I’m going to call the surgeon that did my cateract surgery back last September. I don’t think it had anything to do with that though ??? Will post again after I see him.

    The cataract surgery wont effect anything as long as it as has been awhile since you had the surgery, I would say at least 6 weeks. I've not heard of using Apple cider vinegar, but if it works then that is great. We usually recommend warm compresses. Chalazions tend to take longer to get rid of and sometimes you might have to have a doctor remove it if it does not go away on its own.
