is it painful?
node is because that is the lymph drainage
area of eye. In case of infection it can occasionally get enlarged. It is not due to ointment. Treating the cyst
will treat it .
you need to do hot compresses twice a day over the swelling, take oral antibiotic n antiinflammayory tablets along with pain killer if needed.
simple eyedrop like ciplox
4 times a day will be prophylacticlly enough.
consult eye specialist instead of optometrist
do not wear lenses a week after it has completly subsided
