It seems from the history that you are having recurring stye and a chalazion.
The treatment of chalazion is by intralesional injection of triamcinolone if you do not want to undergo incision and curettage.
Since you are having recurring stye you need to undergo evaluation to find out the underlying causes like uncorrected refractive error, uncontrolled diabetes and treatment accordingly to prevent recurrences.

Thank you
