    Warm compress is one of the most effective ways to relieve chalazion. Chalazion refers to the meibomian gland and its surrounding tissue inflammation caused by obstruction of the gland after chronic granulomatous gland body increase. Warm compresses may be helpful, because warm compresses can help to clear and loosen the clogged gland formed in your eyelid meanwhile moisturize it. Therefore, you can hold a warm wet clean patch on your eyes for 5 minutes, 3 times a day for a month until the chalazion is gone. You should repeatedly soak the cloth in hot water to maintain adequate heat. Besides, you can also gently give massage to the infected area several times a day. But remember never try to "pop" or scratch the chalazion. In all, if the warm compress method do not relieve and cure your chalazion still lasts for several weeks, you'd better go to visit a doctor to have a check.

    Many chalazia need minimal medical treatment and can resolve on their own in a few weeks to a month. Warm compresses can help styes and chalazions heal faster. Moisten a clean, folded washcloth with warm water and apply it to the eyelid for 10-15minutes 4 times to 6 times a day for several days. The moist washcloth can be heated in e microwave over. And remoisten the cloth frequently to keep it wet and warm. This will encourage a stye or chalazion to open a drainage channel, allowing any pus to drain away and restoring normal drainage from oil glands. Lightly messaging the external area of the eyelids for several minutes each day may also help to promote drainage. Once the chalazion drains on its own, keep the area clean and keep your hands away from your eyes. If the chalazion does not drain and heal within a month, contact your eye doctor. And if it's not go away on its own after six weeks, it may need to be removed surgically under local anesthesia.
