Hi Jeanine ,
You have developed Chalazion
a painless swelling ,which remains post Stye
. If it is of significant and noticeable size,bothering you cosmetically it is better to get it removed. With your history of 4 months duration, I don't think it will come down with topical medications.
Consult an ophthalmologist, who can remove it by a minor procedure (incision and drainage
) or give a steroid
injection for the swelling, so it will regress with time.
If it is a very small swelling, then you can just ignore it. But maintain good lid hygiene to avoid further infections like this. Take care.
