Question

Hi,

I have been having itchy eyelids and the corners of my eyes itch as well. I used to use a cold compress for relief in the the beginning but that gives no relief anymore.

Also there's this lump or swell or bubble (i don't know exactly what it is)on both of my eyes.Though the one in the left eye seem bigger than that in the right. The eyes are swollen and red especially in the corners of my eyes.

The condition began about two years ago.I only had the itches in the corners of my eyes once in a while.now the symptoms have increased and so has the intensity of the itch.

What should i do?

Thanks

Thanks for your Question

Most likely you have something called blepharitis or inflammationn of the eyelid. These small swelling are called chalazion and they are also associated with blepharitis.

Lid hygiene is very important to treat this condition. Read about treatment of blepharitis, it can be very helpful for you
