Hello
Welcome to health care magic.

I reviewed your history.
It seems from the history that you are having chalazion and conjunctivitis.
The treatment of this condition is by use of antibiotic eye drops.
Once conjunctivitis heals chalazion can be treated by either intralesional steroid injection or by incision and curettage.
Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for examination and treatment accordingly.

Thank you
