chalazion has made me hated lifeI am 23-year-old who has never encountered chalazion until December 2011. I woke up with a swollen eyelid, took myself to the A&E and was diagnosed with blepharitis and given chloramphenicol. After 1 day the swelling went down.
In late December, I had an interview scheduled for a job, and the day before my eye went through similar swelling. Had to cancel the interview, went to the A&E, again was given chloramphenicol. Went to see another doctor and was given flucloxacillin to take in case it got worse. It didnt, it disappeared after 4 days.
On 9 January 2012, I experience swelling again, this time, knowing whats going to happen, I started compressing with hot water from the first day, putting chloramphenicol from early on, and started taking the flucloxacillin antibiotic. Its 14 January now and the condition has not got better.
This time, for the first few days I experience inflammation, redness around the inner corner of my eye (the same as the previous two), and severe pain. On day 5, the pain started to disappear and a hard lump appear. Based on my research and what the doctors told me, I have a chalazion. However, my chalazion is not visible because its deep inside the eyelid, so there is no prominent bump on the outer surface of the lid. The only way to tell is that my eyes are asymmetrical with my right eye being droopy and bigger due to the chalazion.
I have had difficulty opening my eye for longer than 10 minutes. It feels heavy and I feel tired all the time. I cant stare at the computer screen for longer than 5 minutes. I cant read, I cant do work. Because of this, I have already missed 1 out of the only 4 interviews I had. I have already failed an exam and I have submitted my coursework late.
Everyday I wake up, I feel depressed. I got obssessed with looking in the mirror to see if there is any improvement to the chalazion. At night I sleep praying that this would go away in the morning. I havent been leaving my house for more than 5 hours this week. I feel so embarrassed with my asymmetrical eyes and overall just feeling really down because of this. I love make up and I cant put any on. I have compressed my eye everyday, until my skin becomes so irritated because of the heat and now my skin is flaky around my eye. I have massaged it everyday until its sore, but nothing.
Please, my life has completely changed because of this. I havent smiled in a long time and overall just feel really depressed. I tried to search for my condition, but most chalazia are visible on the surface of the eyelid, whereas mine is completely at the inner corner of my upper right eyelid, feel very deep inside and hot water or massages dont have muc effect.
Please help me. I will forever owe you.

It will have to be scooped out by an Opthalmic Surgeon and will be done under a local anesthetic.
Arnica will prevent future infections by increasing the flow of blood into the eyelids and throughout your body. You will take Arnica twice daily and you will make the Arnica in the Wet dose as noted below:
The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:
Order the remedy in a 5ml Alcohol pack aka Liquid Dilution in a bottle with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake it hard to produce bubbles. This is homeopathic succussion and must be done every time before a capful of the bottle which is the dose is taken as directed.
Report progress weekly.
Do not take any Antibiotics as they cannot help for the reason listed above.

I will try that.
I have been reading a lot of stuff on chalazion on the internet and instead of feeling more educated, I feel even more confused.
Will the chalazion itself disappear on its own or surgery is the only way?

As I stated before no drug or a Homeo remedy cannot reach it as it is virtually fossilized and is beyond help as there is no flow of blood.
Surgery is the only way to reduce it but do not worry about any pain as it is just a few minutes under a local.
Arnica will ensure that you do not get any more repeats of the Sties which is how they start and keep on recurring.
There is no drug that can prevent it from repeating but Arnica will do so. You will have to take it twice daily for the first month and reduce it to just a dose before bed for life.
It is absolutely safe in use and you can read about Arnica on my website on:
