recent chalazia on upper eyelid

Rather new to homeopathic remedies. I never really thought they worked but since I started eating healthier and dieting I noticed a change in my body. I developed a chalazia about 7 days ago on my left upper eye lid. Never had one before the only reason I know it's a chalazia is because I compared it to a stye and not the same. Mine is a bump that formed on the upper eyelid like a size of a small pea. I ran into this website and started reading about so many remedies that have helped ppl w/their recurring chalazion problems. The one that stood out the most was the epsom salts w/hot compresses and using antibacterial soap. My husband had a stye years ago and he was recommended by a friend to use tea tree oil, but his stye was on the lower edge of the bottom lid and it did have a head. He left it untreated for a long time until he started applying tea tree oil and it eventually drained leaving no scars. My question is if tea tree can also be used in combination wit the salt treatment for better results and what exactly does the tea tree oil do? I work with ppl on a daily basis and having this pea size thing on top of my eye lid is not an option. I also read that once you have it there's the possibility of getting them more constantly. What else can I do to avoid a recurring one in the future? On top of that I have problems with hair falling out. Totally different topic but not sure if related in any way because the hair loss is starting to affect the lashes as well. clogged pores everywhere?? I'm only 37 and lossing hair, lashes and now this eye problem gets me very depreseed. any help is appreciated. Thanks.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please take three doses of Staphysagria 200 as follows and see how that affects in next 15 days (only 3 doses in 15 days).

day 1 morning
1st dose

day 1 evening
2nd dose

day 2 morning
3rd dose

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 2 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

Thank you for replying so quickly. I'd also like to add that a couple of days ago I included silicea, arnica, vitamin A, and omega-3 to my regimen. I also take a shake packed with amino acids every morning, oolong tea with goji berry juice and maca powder for energy every day before my workout and multivitamin supplement. Since this issue with my eye came up, I was also prescribed an oral antibiotic for 10 days. I just want to make sure that with all the things I'm already taking, the staphysagria will still keep its effect. can you also explain what this staphysagria will do? In other words, how does it work. Thank you.

Homeopathic prescription is not a bet on pharmacology. It is made on the basis of reported symptoms.

Staph is suggested on the basis of following rubrics.

Mind; hide; things, desire to, cover up:
Eyes; falling out, eyelashes:
Eyes; tumors; cysts; glands, tarsal:

There is no need to take silicea if you decide to take Staphysagria.

update:the inflammation on my upper lid has diminished all I have left is a little pump that is smaller than what it was last week, but it's still there. I was scheduled for surgery today but cancelled hoping the continued use of homeopathy will finally get rid of this chalazion. I just finished the silicea and will try the staphysagria as recommended. Should I also include the hepar sulph or just the staphysagria?
counselor 9 years ago
There is no need to take Staphysagria as silicea worked. Now you may take Silicea at progressively larger gaps as there has been good improvement.

thank you so much for responding. I will follow instructions as recommended. I do have an additional question...please excuse my ignorance but since I did purchase the hepar sulph at the same time I purchased the silicea the 1st time, should I even use it? Thanks

Logging in to observe progress.

You should not use hepar sulph. It may cancel out good effects of silicea. It antidotes silicea.

okay. I didn't know that. I will continue with silicea only. today is my optholmology appointment. I have to keep it due to insurance reasons. my eye shows major improvement. I wake up with puffy eyes every morning, but when the puffiness subsides, the little sac is visible only when I close my eyelid...smaller much smaller. so my doctor told me the pus doesn't go anywhere, it stays there..my husband, mother and the doctor insist I drain whatever I have left of pus or liquid on the eyelid and just get it over with. so here are 2 questions, if the pus doesn't drain, where does it go? is it possible for it to be drying up? it's obviously going somewhere or the sac wouldn't be getting smaller, right? and my other question is if I end up getting convinced to get the little sac drained, can I continue taking the silicea and the arnica? again, thank you so much for responding to my emails and for being so patient with my questions.

okay so these villains ganged up on me and really pushed for the drain and like a moron I gave in. it hurts but at least it's over. just want to make sure it all comes out and I don't have another one build up. so my question is...can I continue taking the silicea and arnica?
counselor 9 years ago
Yes. You can take silicea for few days after surgery if you decide to drain it surgically.
kadwa 9 years ago
okay..so it's been 4 days since the drain and I don't ever want to go through that again!! Now it seems that another one is forming on my left lower lid. what is up with this? I can't go through this again!! Someone Please help me..how can I keep these things from forming? this is ridiculous!!
counselor 9 years ago
You may take Staphysagria 200 as suggested earlier and see how that affects in 15 days.
kadwa 9 years ago
thank you for replying I will keep looking for staphysagria 200, I've only found 30c everywhere I've looked. There's one more place I'll search if I still can't find it, will the 30c work the same?
counselor 9 years ago
Please take Staphysagria 30 in the morning and evening for 3 days and see how that affects in 15 days.

All other instructions on dose size etc remain same.
