Hello
Welcome to Health care magic.

I reviewed your history. It seems from the history that you are having recurrent boil in the eye.
This is because of infection of the glands of the eyelids. This requires treatment by the use of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs.
Since you are having recurrent infections you need to undergo evaluation to rule out predisposing causes like uncorrected refractive error, chronic conjunctivitis, chronic blepharitis and general causes like diabetes, decreased immunity....
Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for examination and treatment accordingly depending on the underlying cause.
Hope this is helpful to you.
Thank you
