Chalazions affecting my confidence. They have been here for weeks and they have not disappeared

They look similar to this





One doctor thought they were styes and one doctor though they were acne, but they look more like chalazions to me.

What should I do? How can I get rid of them? Please help me, I feel like I can't pull women with these lumps under my eyes and I might be single forever unless these lumps disappear

In the mean time, warm compresses for 10 or 15 minutes 3 to 5 times a day.

If they really are bothering you, go to a doctor who actually specialises in this kind of thing. An ophthalmologist. They can scoop those little sacks of yuck right out of your eyelids in about 10 or 15 minutes!

You don’t have to live up so literally to your nickname or nom de gtx0.
Instead of worrying, actually go to an eye doctor.
If you’re British, it’s free for you, isn’t it?

Maybe we should all just tell you it’s something horrible like a botfly or some other parasite. If we can out-pessimize you, maybe you’ll get pissed off at us and quit worrying.
Although I think any reasonable moderator would stop me if I tried that!

Do you have, or have you ever had, rosacea or blepharitis?

Have you seen a medical professional about it to get a diagnosis, or would you rather just keep guessing what it is and worrying about it?

Are you willing to put up with it for the months it will take to go away by itself —— if it really is chalazions —— or would you rather get the apparently easy and sure-fire treatment a medical pro could give you?

You’re in your twenties —— don’t you think it’s about time to grow up?

I went to see another doctor. She gave me fusidic acid eyedrops and clarithromycin antibiotics. She said she thinks they are infected styes, hordeolums and then she said they may be chalazions.

I don't know what rosacea or blepharitis are. But I do get acne from time to time.

I hope I don't have to go through all the trouble this man's been going through:

I think you won’t have to worry about it much longer. They’ll clear up soon now that you’re getting the right treatment.

Also, maybe you and your women are too young to think about this yet, but, eventually, women are going to be impressed by a man who can take care of himself, take care of them, and take care of their family, more than a man with a great-looking face. Or so I’ve always heard.

These are my eyes and they are swollen right now. What are your opinions about this? Is there are a cure or am I doomed to have swollen scabbed up eyes forever?

Why is God being a dick to me right now? Can't he be kinder and bring me good things in life instead, for example an attractive girlfriend who I would get on well with and who I would enjoy spending time with.

God I pray to you, heal my eyes. Get rid of these lumps, scabs, whatever the hell these are. This is a true test to see if there is any kindness or compassion in you, to see if you are worthy of being part of the Universe. If you don't cure my eyes, Jesus will be angry with you and he will associate you with Satan.

Even inasmuch as the Biblical Jesus is a theologically separate entity from God, Jesus is inferior.

elemtilas is there a chance the surgery to remove them can cause scarring?


Well, I’m not elemtilas, but there’s always a (usually minuscule) chance that any medical or surgical procedure or intervention could cause some kind of unwanted effect.
Ordinarily, that unwanted effect is not as unwanted as the condition one is trying to treat or cure or prevent; and the chance of the unwanted outcome is less than the chance of the wanted outcome by quite a lot; and the chance of a less-than-desirable outcome, if the procedure or drug or treatment is done, is also a lot less than the chance that things will get worse if nothing is done.

If the surgery involves cutting, there’s usually a risk of a scar. How big a risk and how big a scar, depends on a number of things, one of which is your race, believe it or not!
But as I understand it this particular surgery involves no cutting?

Your physician and/or surgeon should be able to advise you what exactly the odds are of what might happen if you take or don’t take various options. Odds are they think they already have. There’s a pretty good chance you didn’t understand and they didn’t notice.
The patients who are happiest with their physicians are the ones who ask the most questions.
Before your next appointment, make a list of questions you want answered; and take it with you.
In case you get an answer that raises more questions, ask those too, or write them down to ask at the end if the consultation.

Your physician should be able to tell you;
What your options are;
For each option, what good things might happen, and what the odds are of each;
For each option, what bad things might happen, and what the odds are of each.

Then they should let you make up your own mind which option to pursue.

In case it’s just too much information for you to wrap your mind around (often enough, it is), ask them what they advise, and why. If their answer sounds good to you, follow their advice.

If the stakes are high, they should be just fine with you getting a second opinion. Don’t be afraid to do that! They’ll probably have a list of registered and qualified other doctors/surgeons/whatevers in your area that they can give you, without comment. Pick one at random and ask them the same questions.

After that you should be pretty comfortable with the idea that you now know the best thing to do. If not, ask somebody smart who loves you. Beyond that I wouldnt know what to do either.

I hope that helps!

My appointment with the eye doctor is not until Thursday. In the UK I had to see regular doctors about 4 times, then I had to wait at a hospital all day and have to the day off work just to see the consultant and he referred me to see the eye doctor on Thursday.

All that just to see an eye doctor!

A very slight risk. If your surgeon flips the eyelid inside-out and scrapes it from the inside, you should have no break in the skin at all, and thus no scarring. You'll probably have a bit of a black eye, but I'm sure you can finagle that into a chick magnet without any issues!

If they haven't already given you some basic information, do have a shufty here: https://www.ouh.nhs.uk/patient-guide/leaflets/files/14150Pchalazion.pdf

This should answer all the basic queries you have, and from a Rightpondian perspective. It's written primarily for the parents of children undergoing the procedure, but it addresses the same concerns you'll have for yourself. Just make sure you follow your pre-operative instructions to the f/cking letter. Especially when it comes to not eating or drinking anything from midnight the evening before surgery and thereafter. You can die or become very ill all due to complications of being terminally stupid by eating too close to the time of your surgery. Don't WORRY, just don't eat or drink or chew gum or chaw tobacco or suck on sweets (or suck on anything else).

That's a(n overly fancy) warm compress, which is what I recommended you a fortnight ago.

Hopefully it will help you out! At the very least, it'll make you twenty quid poorer, because all you actually need is a dish towel and hot water. Or alternatively, a sock and 400g of uncooked rice. Just dump the rice in the sock, tie the end, nuke it for a minute and hey presto! Instant warm compress.

Good luck with the USB gadget, though!

For God’s sake don’t cook your eye medium-rare!!!!
Don’t cook it like a pork chop either!!
60 degrees Celsius is how hot to cook a medium-to-medium-rare beefsteak.
49 degrees Celsius is how hot to cook a pork chop or a bison steak.

The highest fever that might not cause brain damage is about 43 degrees Celsius.
Don't use a temperature hotter than about 43 degrees Celsius on any living part of your body that you’d like to keep alive!

On the other hand if you use a temp much cooler than about 40 degrees Celsius it might not help much.
Maybe start it at 38 degrees Celsius, then increase it a degree at a time, until it feels too hot or you get to 43 degrees, whichever comes first.

Don’t fart around with liquid nitrogen either!

Are you trolling us?

These ridiculously risky suggestions just seem like pranks.

And your trivial reasons for not going to the doctor are nowhere near as important as your sight.

To save your eye, camp out at the damned doctors’ office or clinic if you have to!

—————

Vinegar is fairly dilute acetic acid.

The only acid that’s good for your eye is boric acid!

DO NOT put any kind of vinegar in your eye!

——————

If you really, honestly, considered any of those ideas, then as soon as your eye is OK, have someone check out your brain. It’s malfunctioning.

I'm pretty sure Worried British Man, Welsh Gamer, Curious Researcher, etc. are all the same person. They all feel like elaborate jokes or something. They jump to crazy conclusions all the time and are OBSESSED with saying that a 19 year old person can definitely not grow any more and are fully grown adults (and if you question this you have a form of autism). They also start to ask somewhat invasive questions, use non-sequitur questions, or again jump to a conclusion when someone suggests something.

I had an operation on my right eye today. I am now wearing an eye patch



I will take the patch off tomorrow morning and put antibiotic drops in 3 times a day for a week.

They said the skin was too hard to do an operation on the other eye and putting a clamp on it might do more damage so I am rubbing steroid ointment on my left eye once a day until August the 13th.

August 13th is the day where I should have the operation on my left eye. The steroid ointment is supposed to soften up the lower eyelid to make the operation easier.
