Re: Is my Chalazia a serious issue?

This isn't an astrological answer, but my Capi Sun daughter used to get these all the time. They would last six months or longer. It's caused by a condition called blepharitis. She used to have a very chronic case of eye inflammation, which was treated by a course of a combination of steroids and antibiotics...that actually burned her eye and made the condition worse. What finally did the trick was a six month regimen of Restasis, and learning how to keep the eyelid clean (sometimes just washing the eyelids with baby shampoo will work.)

Definitely see an eye doctor. Not a serious condition, but painful and unattractive.
