A chalazion is a lump in the eyelid that is caused by a blocked oil gland. Symptoms and signs include redness and pain. Applying warm compresses and lightly massaging the area several times a day helps to reduce swelling and promote drainage. Other treatment methods include antibiotic eyedrops, injections of steroids into the lump, or surgery to remove the chalazion.
