Chalazion Homeopathy Treatment and its homeopathic Medicine without surgery

What Is Chalazion?

A chalazion is a gradually increasing, painless nodule or swelling on the upper or lower eyelid that appears due to the blockage of an oil gland (Meibomian gland).


The meibomian gland secretes oil. This oil along with tears lubricate the eyelids and protects the eyes.


What is Chalazion?


A chalazion may develop after a stye. A stye is nothing but an infection of the Meibomian gland (internal stye) or infection of the eyelash follicle or sweat gland (external stye). A stye is a painful condition, whereas chalazion is mostly painless.


A chalazion may disappear without any treatment but, in most patients, it tends to recur even after removing it surgically. Homeopathy can treat this tendency of recurrent stye or chalazion.

What happens in chalazion? (Pathogenesis)

Hard nodular swelling on the eyelids is known as a chalazion. Meibomian glands present in the eyelids secrete oil, which moisturizes the eyelids and protects the eyes. Infections of eyelids, recurrent inflammation of the eyelids, and recurrent styes lead to inflammation of the Meibomian gland (oil-secreting glands in eyelids) which causes blockage of the duct which drains the gland. The blockage of the duct leads to chronic enlargement of the gland resulting in a chalazion. It is nothing but granulomatous inflammation of the Meibomian gland. Chalazion mostly affects the upper eyelid, but it can affect the lower eyelid as well.


Prevalence Of Chalazion:

Chalazion affects both sexes equally. It can affect an individual of any age group. Adults are more affected than children due to chalazion.


Causes Of Chalazion:

1) Infections: Bacterial or viral infections affecting the eyelids or conjunctiva may, in turn, lead to chalazion. Poor hygiene and reduced immunity may lead to recurrent infections.

A chalazion may develop after a stye. A stye is an infection of oil glands or eyelash hair follicles. Recurrent infections may turn into recurrent and multiple chalazia.

2) Inflammation: Inflammatory conditions affecting the eyelids, such as chronic blepharitis, seborrhea, or seborrheic dermatitis affecting eyelids, acne, etc. may cause chalazion.

3) Use of cosmetics: Applying excess eye makeup may block the oil glands leading to chalazion.

4) Contact lenses: Prolonged use of contact lenses may lead to frequent inflammation or infection, which may trigger chalazion.

Symptoms Of Chalazion:
