Treatment & Care
If your child has a small chalazion, it may go away on its own without treatment in a couple of months. Treatment of a secondary infection or larger chalazion may include:
- antibiotic drops for the eye
- applying warm, wet compresses to your child's eyes for a period of approximately 15 minutes, several times throughout the day
- instructing your child not to squeeze or rub the chalazion
- having your child wash his or her hands frequently
If symptoms do not improve, surgery may be necessary to remove the chalazion.
