Child Eye issues

My 5 year old son has a gland swollen under his lower eyelid, outer side near the edge of the eye. It has been there for 2 months. The eye doctor told me it was a swollen gland not a sty and that it will resolve in a month with drops. If I use allopathic eye drops,it stays status quo. If I stop them for a couple days, the swelling becomes bigger- so am scared to stop. No change in eye color, no pain etc. The child is very active and smart and short tempered!!

The homeopath tried Silicea for a week - nothign happened. Then tried argentem nitricum - nothing happened.

What do I do now?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
if it is meibomian gland then the most helpful remedies will be aethusa, clematis, colchicum, conium, phytolacca, staphisagria, sulphur.
read the eye symptoms of these remedies and see which matches most closely.
try and make sure that the eye is not touched by fingers, change the pillowcase daily and avoid dusty places, strong winds etc. as much as possible - perhaps wearing sunglasses would be helpful outside.

i would initially try sulphur - give for 2 days, 3 doses daily in the 30c potency. after 2 days report back - if you have problems before this report back sooner.

Went to a homeopath who says Nux Vomica ????

maybe you have given this homeopath more/other information than you have given above, which has led to the suggestion of nux vomica?
I am sure their suggestion is more correct than mine given here, as they have the advantage of seeing the patient and asking more questions and observing the patient.

Nothing much different. this person asked me more questions on the temperament / behavior patterns etc and I told him that the past 2 things had failed. Anyway - will tey Nux V. first- can I try the otheres also if htis does not work...if so how much of a gap should I give before trying another medicine?

try the nux vom first and then see. if other medicines are needed this can only be assessed after seeing what the symptoms are like AFTER giving the nux vom.

How long should I wait after Nux vom to try sulphur?

Thanks! Glad you are back.

The homeopath told me to give Nux V 200, 2 pills once a day for 3 days. The swelling seems bigger. Have been putting heat on my child's eye every night,as with our busy schedules, we do not find time rushing off at 7.am. HE complains of no pain at all-it is as if it isn't there. The swelling seems bigger towards evening than it was in the morning.

So what next? Do I wait a while to see what the Nux V does? When can I give the next medicine? Do not want to rush things, but also, do not want to lead to surgery, however minor. Back to allopathic eye drops now....

Thanks again.

His lower lid still seems a little swollen and reddish near the rim of the eye. No complaints of pain. Applying heat at night.
