Is the condition preventable?
To help minimise the risk of this condition occurring (or reoccurring), you are advised to clean your eyelid twice daily to remove grime.
While the development of a chalazion could be a one-off, for some people, they are more prone to recurrent infections.
Instances include those who suffer from blepharitis, rosacea, or eczema.
The NHS explained: “Blepharitis causes swollen, itchy eyelids” – symptoms include:
- Sore eyelids
- Itchy eyes
- A gritty feeling in the eyes
- Flakes or crusts around the roots of the eyelashes
- Eyelids sticking together in the morning when you wake up.
