Question: I have a visible dent in my right lower eyelid, that appears to be the opposite of a stye in the eyelid. A stye causes an inflamed bubble, while this condition causes a very pronounced notch (missing skin) in my eyelid, with some redness underneath the notch behind the eyelid. I have have had this happen before some years ago, in my lower left eye lid, and it caused my eyelid to heal in such a way that caused my eye lashes to cross at the point where the scar healed. This particular notch is a little less pronounced than the last one, fortunately, but is slow to heal.

my 19 months baby has a chalazion on her upper eyelid since 2 months now, however it s not as big as i ve seen in videos and research many adults have. Should i leave it to heal by itself or i should interfere, though her pediatrician told me to do nothing about it. Also, how long will it take maximum to heal??

Hi, I have undergone a scar excision surgery near the lower eyelid. I was suggested to use Flutivate Cream to reduce the pigmentation. Please suggest whether to use Flutivate Cream around the eye as it is a Streriod and could cause any side effects.

I have a chalazion- had it for around 10 months now, and it s really small and right under my bottom eyelid (not on the eyelash line) you can t see it unless i flip up the underside of my bottom eyelid. I ve taken meds for it and it stopped growing and it s just been there (no pain or inflammation till this day) and really loose and the color of it was the color of the regular underside of an eyelid. Now it suddenly turned black (like a tiny watermelon seed) and VERY VERY loose- it doesn t look like it s a tumor or an infection (Because still no pain and looks nothing like the pictures provided on google) and I m guessing it turned black because blood circulation was cut off from it. Is it possible for a chalazion to just fall off? I mean it s not suddenly disappearing like it s supposed to, it s just there. It s similar to a cutaneous skin tag but under my eye and black (haha sorry for the visuals).
