User:Hello
Doctor:Hello!
Doctor:How can I help you
User:I got a small bump like thing on my eye lid
User:i think it is because of heat
User:since yest
Doctor:It's mostly a blocked gland
User:my one eye lid is little swollen
User:yeah
User:so how can i make it normal again
Doctor:those happen quite often in dusty conditions or if you have allergies
Doctor:you can use a warm compress on the eye and wash your eye frequently
Doctor:That should help
User:generally in summer it happens
Doctor:if it gets uncomfortably large, you can go to the eye doctor (opthalmologist) and they can surgically remove it if you wish
Doctor:Ok, that makes sense
User:no its small only
Doctor:great, then warm compresses should do the trick
User:not so big , only near the end of my eye
User:ok
User:i will try
User:how long it will take?
Doctor:honestly, if you left it alone for a few days it would probably go away on its own
Doctor:give it a week
User:oh ok thats a long time
User:thanks for your help
Doctor:ya, the cells in the eye turn over slowly
Doctor:don't worry
User:thanks
Doctor:Take Care
