Brief Answer:
Was it a chalazion?

Detailed Answer:
the photos are still not opening dear sorry but the only swelling which is removed by cutring inside the lids is called a chalazion which is due to blockage of glands in the lids and recurrent chalazion can happen if yiu rub your eyes a lot leading to infection going from hands to eye lids or you have some condition which causes infections like diabetes . you should also get your refraction done and if you have a spectacle mumber you should wear it all the time as uncorrected refractive error causes eye strain and rubbing of eyes leading to this . meanwhile use some hot fomentation and moxifloacin eye ointment for two weeks and if still doesnt go away we will need to remove it like last time

Brief Answer:
No rubbing of eyes is most important cause

Detailed Answer:
Rubbing of eyes is most important cause as it transfers infection from skin to eyes and cause chalazion . Rubbing of eyes usually occurs in uncorrected refractive error; so get refraction done .
