Question: Hello doctor. Good Morning.
Since three days am feeling like there is something like very small growth or bump under my left upper eyelid which I couldn't able to see. It causes only irritation without any redness, inflammation etc.
I tried ciprofloxacin eye drops but I didn't see any good results.
Can you tell what could be the reason for this and prescribe any good medication?

Brief Answer:
Chalazion.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’.

Thanks for sending your query to us.

This apparently is a chalazion (I would have preferred a photograph). This will need Neosporine H eye ointment to be applied at the lid margin for it to resolve.

If there is only irritation,then lubricant eye drops like Refresh Tears or Tears Naturale should be used.

Any further query in this regard please do get back to me.

Thank you doctor, actually am not able to take a pic of chalazion because it is located at innerside of my eye my which I cannot see..
Neosprin H is not available OTC, can I take only neosprin ointment ? or please suggest any alternative medication.

Hi,

Thanks for getting back to me.

You can use Ciplox eye ointment, along with warm compresses. In a couple of weeks this may resolve. In case of poor response, these are surgically removed.

Continue with this treatment and your symptoms will improve.

Take care.
