Swollen eyelid pus

Common Questions and Answers about Swollen eyelid pus


Avatar f tn I woke up one morning to find my left upper-eyelid to be itchy and watery, though not swollen. After a day or two, it became swollen, watery, and very itchy. Even my right upper-eyelid became itchy too (not swollen though). And now, after a month, although the itchiness on my right eye has greatly subsided, my left upper-eyelid still remains itchy, with a lump in the corner of the eyelid. The lump is not red, not noticeable unless when touched, not flaky, but still very itchy.
Avatar n tn Swelling in the upper eyelid and / or lower eyelid of the left eye. No problem in vision. No pain, no pus, no redness in eye. The swelling increases especially during sleeping time, when the eyes are closed. During the daytime, when the eyes are generally open, the swelling generally decreases but when ever I sleep or close my eyes for about half an hour, the eyes again swells. This has been happening for almost a month and half.
Avatar n tn My right Upper Eyelid has been swollen since 8-9 years. The swelling either increases or remains a little swollen but has never diminished completely. There is only pain when the swelling increases. I have no other problem other than this i.e. constant swelling and pain when swelling increases. Have shown to doctors, they say it is an infection, pus is collected in my right upper eyelid, tried with eye drops Toba DM but swelling did not go.
Avatar m tn i got a pimple on the edge of me lower eyelid any suggestion how to get rid of with out getn something in my eye?
Avatar m tn I don't know what is on the bottom of my inner eye lid. It has my eye swollen and it does hurt. It look like a stye and did have pus come out of it .
Avatar n tn I admit it is totally my fault I have this problem. The eyelid and area above have been red and swollen for four days. I would have thought the redness and swelling would be gone by now, but it is still there. Is there anything I can do to reduce the swelling and get rid of the redness? Thank you.
Avatar m tn A week ago I had a severe pain on that tooth and I started taking Amoxicillin 500mg as my dentist prescribed in case of infection when he opened it to clean the roots.The next day the part next to my nose got swollen but the pain has gone.After 5 days on Amoxicillin the swell is not visible but I can feel it when I open my mouth. The thing that get me worried is that slight pressure feeling on my cheek and the upper eyelid.
Avatar n tn Hello, I just took my daughter to our family doc for a swollen kinda red eyelid on 7/2/08. Doc said it is conjunctivitis or bacterial infection. My daughters eyeball is not red and there is no drainage. On 7/3 her kinda red eye lid is now a very red/reddish purple color with a little swelling. Is this truly conjunctivitis or is this more serious? Is this a staph infections of the eyelid? Thank you for your time.
Avatar f tn So, I've already posted a few times, but here's an update: my internal hordeolum (stye) on the insdie of my upper right eyelid came to a head (was all white) today. Later, when i looked, I noticed it was "draining". Now, when I look, it's hardly white (if any at all) and is just back to being a bump, but red (again, doesn't appear to have any pus in it). does this mean Im "on track" to full recovery?
Avatar f tn Well, the day after I tried 'popping' what I thought was the stye, my eyelid really hurt and was swollen, as the day continued I looked at my eye in the mirror and thought I had an awful lot of 'eye gunk' what was really pus coming from my eyelid. I went to the pharmacy and had the pharmacist recommend some over-the-counter eye drops for my eye, which she told me contained antibiotics.
Avatar m tn The doctor told me that I had a clogged hair follicle in my lower eyelid. Is that some medical term for a boil??? Its only swollen and hurting and there is no presence of any boil "head" or acne looking skin problem. I beleive they call it the carbuncle. She prescribed terramycin and I will fill it out tomorrow. But does any one know what I could use besides a hot compress (she prescribed that also) to help relieve the swelling. I tried that, but its like the pain worsens.
Avatar f tn Felt like something was irritated at the base of my eyelashes. Woke up yesterday morning with a swollen eye lid. Still swollen today and eye lid is red. I was thinking that it might be a stye but there is no little bump anywhere on my eyelid. I have been applying warm compresses throughout the day. Think this is a stye forming or something else? Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.
Avatar f tn Use the search feature and archives and read about blepharitis the most common cause of recurrent styes. Get some Occusoft Foam Eyelid cleaner OR SteriLid Foam eyelid cleaner and use 3 to 5 times/week when you shower to clean you lids (just like you clean your scalp). There is some evidence that long term omega 3 supplements may help. Use a high quality enteric coated fish oil like cardiotabs Omega 3 start with one per day for 2 weeks then add second pill with breakfast.
Avatar f tn Hi, my dog miracle woke up 4 days ago with a swollen right eye. A couple hours later the swelling went down and I noticed pink colored pimple like bumps along the rim of the bottom eyelid. Then later that night the pimples appeared on her left eye lid in the same place. The next night, we noticed the same type of pimples on the side of her nose (3 of them.) There are about 4 on each eyelid. That days the eyes started building up a light yellow discharge in the corners.
Avatar n tn Hi, My clever and brilliant 8 year old nephew had an accident about 1 year ago in which he tripped and poked his left eye just above the eyelid. Since he’d missed the eye itself, we didn’t consider it serious and only later took him to the hospital. There was pus coming out of his eye so he underwent surgery to have his eye checked and for any foreign particles/obstacles etc to be removed.
Avatar f tn Hi, I just went an eye doc. yesterday due to a swollen eyelid and was prescribed keflex, an oral antibiotic for an internal hordeolulm (stye). Anyway, I've taken 2 pills so far and was wondering. 1. I now have a "discharge" coming fromthat eye...it's clear, but it's definitely a new development since I got put on the antibiotic....is this the "pus" from the stye releasing, or could it besomething else?
Avatar n tn If I go to sleep it continues to swell until my whole eyelid is swollen shut!! It happens in either eye....I usually take a large amt of benadryl and try to stay awake until it goes a way...24-48 hours depending how swollen it got....After the swelling went down, my other eye began to swell the next night....Usually it only happens to one eye but sometimes both. I have just learned to live w/it miseably because no doctors seem to help...
Avatar m tn hello, i just had my chalazion drained today. I still feel the bump under my eyelid. My question is, will this bump eventually go away in a few days or did my doctor no drained everything? My eye lid is sill swollen and I was just under the the asumption that the bump will be gone right after the surgery.
Avatar m tn then the ulceration on my penis head had gotten worse, with two other more ulceration around it, slightly painful but not much of pus coming out of it. this is when i also found out my right vas deferens are swollen alot more than my left. after 5 days or so the black-center sores started to grow more in numbers and about 15~18 of them total on the penile area, they are all not bigger than 1cm, mostly aprox 0.5mm in size.
Avatar n tn on the 19th of january i gave a guy unprotected oral sex (no ejaculation) and also recieved oral sex, after roughly 1week i developed a minor sore throat with slight pus near tonsils, pus in lower eyelid.
Avatar n tn About 6 months ago, a chalazion developed on my top upper eyelid. Now, about 5 months after the swollen and redness has all ceased, I'm left with a hard but not VERY noticeable bump. I first noticed it was there because my eyes are now uneven due to the creases being messed up - the one with the bump seems "fatter" than the other one, thus making that eye look smaller.
Avatar m tn On the 19th of January about 30 days + I had a eye infection which seemed like a bump at the start and one eye was swollen. I went to the doctor and he examined and said that it seemed like a bacterial infection. He had a look inside the eye with a cotton bud. There was no major redness or discharge or pus. He prescribed Optrex infected eye solution with chloramphenicol. He said to put this inside eye.
Avatar n tn He has been on antibiotics in form of drops,ointment and most recently oral antibiotics and the eyelid is still red and a bit swollen. What can we do? and is there a chance that this could be a form of eyelid cancer should we be concerned? Thank You for your time.

471737 tn?1327256051 I have an external one on my lower right eyelid now. I have Maxitrol (neomycin + polymyxin + dexamethasone) and Terramycin (oxytetracycline + neomycin) ointments. I have have a bottle of Maxitrol eye drops. Are drops suitable for external styes ? If topical treatment doesn't work, how about a course of oral antibiotics like Bactrim ? Thank you.
Avatar n tn This consisted of irritation on the vulva, a patch of fluid filled bumps underneath my left eyebrow (which went away the next morning), And swelling of my (FACE) lips(right where they meet together) I also experience chills which made goosebumps all over my body.And on my left bottom eyelid there were little pus spots that made a linear pattern along the eyelid. no bilsters, but i did have three bumps on my vaginal lips. Could this be herpes or an allergic reaction to latex.
Avatar m tn Last week there was a whitehead pimple on my elbow, and this week one was on my knee, and I noticed a whitehead pimple on my left eyebrow yesterday, and now I get home from work today and my right eyelid is a little swollen and there's a small whitehead pimple on my right eyelid in the inside near my nose. I know this sounds sensitive but I never got these random whitehead pimples, at least not that I've ever noticed. I'm a generally healthy person and rarely get sick.
Avatar n tn Well, everything went fine and the dryness with the inflammations resolved but the first or second night after using the Refresh PM my eyelids became swollen for most of the following day and this lasted for the duration of the treatment ( I think it was like 2 weeks or so). It seems that one of my eyelash gland sucked in the Refresh PM and it got stuck with it. It happened the first or second night. After a month I went back to the same location at work and this time the other eye got dry.
Avatar m tn Then I got the worst sore throat ever (tonsillitis with pus on them). I was retested for EBV antibodies which this time came positive. The sore throat lasted for more than two weeks. Test results: EBV VCA IgM positive 180 EBV VCA IgG positive 42 I asked my doctor for CD4 and CD8 (I am HIV negative) CD4: 22.6 LOW (normal range 38.27 - 56.47) CD8: 36.1 HIGH (normal range 23 - 35) Can these result be an indication of (whether this is a new infection or a reactivation) ?
