Suggest treatment and medication for chalazion

Hi, i have recurring chalazions, and was prescribed doxycyline 100mg a day, but the chalazions keep coming back. Now i have a stye forming as well. I have done the warm compresses 20 minutes 5 times a day and the stye is coming to a head but the chalazions aren t responding at all. I had one chalazion cut out a few months ago (twice in same spot) they did a biopsy and no cancer-- but then a month later it came back! What can i do- besides the lid wipes and hot compresses which is very difficult to do every day for the rest of my life-- and it doesn t seem to help. Someone suggested taking Augmentin for 7 days- my doctor is out of town right now, so what do you think i should do in general and if i should take augmentin with the docycyline.

Apart from antibiotics also try to maintain good hygiene by washing eyes with warm water. Use clean handkerchiefs and towels and change them daily. Avoid excess cosmetic application on face. Replace soap with bengal gram four and rose water. Add 2 drops of moisol eye drops thrice daily. Also triphala drops ( ayurvedic medicine) thrice daily acts as good natural antibacterial medicine reducing recurrence of style.
