How to recognize swollen eyelids?
We have 4 eyelids: two upper and two lower. They protect
our eyes from certain attacks, block light and promote
hydration and purification of the cornea.
This swelling can affect the upper and/or lower eyelids
and affect one or both eyes at the same time. Depending
on the cause of the swelling, there may be other
symptoms. In addition to swelling, the eyelids can be
red, painful, and even itchy.

base of the eyelashes. Anyone can experience it at some point, but it's more
common in people with diabetes and contact lens wearers. Barley usually heals on
its own or with topical hygiene, sometimes in combination with antibiotic eye drops.
Chalazion is an inflammatory reaction caused by a blockage in the
gland that lubricates the surface of the eye. It is often confused with barley

free edge of the eyelid or the lashes. A chalazion can go away on its own
within a few weeks, but sometimes it needs to be removed surgically.

sebum production. It causes swelling of the eyelid but
also itching or burning.You can also observe the
appearance of crusts and possible loss of eyelashes.
It is treated with eyelid care and possibly antibiotic
