Looking forward for your reply,Thanking you,AV

A:It appears that you may be suffering from a chronic lid condition called meibomitis and/or blepharitis. This may cause a further condition called chalazion, in which, after an acute infection in the lid, a pea sized swellingpersists in the gland. A checkup by your local ophthalmologist to confirm these possiblities would bethe preferred option. However, a course of oral Doxycycline 100 mg daily for at least 2 months, combined with good lid hygiene and cleaning using Betadineantiseptic lotion to scrub your lid margins once daily may be considered, under the supervision of the ophthalmologist.
