Question

 

 

Hi,

I noticed a growth on my upper lid of my left eye, then about two weeks later, I noticed another on the lower lid of my right eye.

After another two weeks, I noticed another in the upper lid of my right eye. About one month later, which is now, there’s another one on the same upper lid of my left eye.

This last one is a bit painful but the rest are not. I don’t know what is wrong with me.

Thanks

Most likely you have multiple chalazions that are caused by obstruction of meibomian Glands at the eyelid margin or meibomian gland dysfunction.
