I have developed a swelling in my upper left eyelid .
I went to my GP today who said it was a cyst - I am very unsure whether to believe her
It is a red odematous area along the lid margin with a swelling in the middle and it hurts to touch it
She says it should go down on its own but gave me chloramycetin ointment to use on the lid margin - which i dare not use at the moment -with my history of allergies
I asked if it was a blocked gland and she said no - a blocked hair follicle
I DO HOPE SHE IS RIGHT
I feel very anxious about it since i need to do my eyelid hygiene and hope it is not connected with my MGD - or worse -that i hav'nt injured my glands being too rough with them
Anyone any ideas or experience anything similar??
