    Although the chalazion looks the same as eye stye, they are totally different. Talking about chalazion, it means the meibomian gland idiopathic aseptic chronic granulomatous inflammation.

    Well, they are different from each other. First, eye chalazion is a lump of the lid that is caused by obstruction of the drainage duct of an oil gland within the upper or lower eyelid. Generally speaking, this lump may increase in size. And because of it, your eyes will turn to red, warm, or painful. On the other hand, eye stye is caused by some bacteria and allergies. So to cure it, you should make sure your eyes are far from the bacteria, so that they can not be infected. And at that moment, your eyes will feel burning, red. For the treatments, heating a piece of garlic will work wonders if done right.
