Chalazion Relief: How TheraLife® Can Help
What is a Chalazion?
A chalazion is a small bump that appears on your eyelid because of a blocked oil gland (meibomian glands). It can develop on the inside lower or upper eyelid, and it often disappears without formal treatment in about one month. Treating a chalazion with TheraLife for fastest healing involves using eyelid cleanser to keep lids and lashes clean, using a hot compress to open blocked glands in the eye, and taking the Eye Enhanced oral supplement tablets to balance and heal your body from the inside.
Causes of Chalazion
People with meibomian gland dysfunction tend to be more prone to chalazion and may have recurring chalazions.
Chalazions are often confused with styes. They are both caused by blocked meibomian glands – oil producing glands. The difference is – styes are often painful where chalazions are not. Styes are caused by bacterial infections and are contagious. Treating a chalazion is easier than treating a stye due to the absence of infection.
In rare instances, chalazia are caused by skin cancer. You should seek advice from your doctor if you are concerned and/or are not having success in treating a chalazion yourself.
Symptoms of a Chalazion
The most common symptoms of a chalazion are:
- a tender spot on your eyelid
- a hard lump on your eyelid that you have never seen before
- increased tearing of the eyes
- blurred or blocked vision
- sensitivity to light
Treatment a Chalazion or Chalazia – Use TheraLife® Eye Enhanced
A key clinical factor in chalazion is inflammation. Inflammation causes tear secretion glands to shut down – resulting in dry eyes. Use TheraLife®Eye Enhanced to reduce inflammation and restore meibomian glands’ ability to produce healthy levels of lubricants and dry eye relief.
In addition, try treating a chalazion by applying a hot compress to your eyelid several times a day for about 10 minutes at a time. This can reduce the swelling by softening the oils in the blocked gland, which should help the lump to drain on its own. Use our Eyelid Cleanser when treating a chalazion to keep your eye lids clean and to prevent eye lid infections (which can lead to styes).
You may also be told to massage the lump gently a few times per day to try to drain it. Before you do this, make sure your hands and any compresses you use are clean.
Surgeries for Treating a Chalazion
If the chalazion does not go away within about one month, you should return to your doctor to discuss your options for treating a chalazion. When a chalazion does not heal after treatment, it may need to be surgically removed. This is especially true if it keeps growing, blocks your vision, or leads to an astigmatism (an abnormal curving of the cornea). Surgery is usually a last resort, and it is rarely required because most chalazia clear up with a combination of medication and home remedies.
Most chalazia heal by themselves, either with no treatment or simple home care. In very rare cases, the suspected chalazion is caused by skin cancer, so your doctor may take a biopsy if the lump continues to grow or does not go away with treatment. This is why you should see a doctor to be diagnosed before assuming the lump is a chalazion.
Preventing a Chalazion
It is not always possible to avoid getting a chalazion, especially if you are prone to this type of eye problem. However, you can reduce your chances of getting one by keeping dirt off your eyelids, which means keeping your face and hands clean. If you get chalazia often, you can use baby shampoo on your eyelids to keep the area clean without irritating your eyes. You can also put a warm compress on your eyelids for a few minutes each night before bed. This makes your oil glands less likely to become blocked, which may reduce your chances of getting a chalazion.
Recovery from Recurring Chalazion, Blepharitis Chronic Dry Eye Syndrome
“I had severe blepharitis & recurring chalazia for 8 years. I was losing eye lashes, and Trichiasis (lashes growing inward) causing pain. I gave TheraLife a try. Within one week, I no longer had crusty, sticky build-up on my eye lashes, and lashes are starting to grow back normally. Love this new product Eye Lid Cleanser. It has been 2 months now, and I am back to using some mascara. TheraLife changed my life. I would recommend it for anyone who has Blepharitis, Chalazia and Dry Eyes.”
