A Home Remedy for Chalazion

by Andreea Laza

Similar with stye, chalazion is a chronic inflammation of glands inside the eyelids.

The difference between the two is that chalazion has a longer evolution (2-3 weeks) and in most cases it doesn’t simply go away as stye does. Instead, it often encloses and has an unpleasant aesthetic appearance.

This is why most chalazion patients go through surgical procedures to get rid of it.

What actually happens is that the excretion channel of the sebaceous gland gets blocked.

Hence its secretion can no longer reach the surface of the eye and partake in the formation of the fluid that covers the eye. Instead it remains inside the eyelid and it builds up in time.

Due to the fact that there are countless tearing glands around the eye, chalazions can recur very often.

And this is a common case with children and adolescents.

However, there is a home remedy for chalazion that we want to share with you today. But in order to treat the cause of chalazion, we need to see what can cause it and thus treat it from a holistic perspective.

The Most Common Causes of Chalazion

1. Microbial infection.  In most cases an infection with staphylococcus aureus can lead chalazion. Hence, beforehand it’s best to do a staphylococcus test and see if you have it and if so, follow a treatment recommended by your doctor to kill the microbe. Chalazion is also more common in patients that have suffered from stye before.

2. Other medical conditions. The sebaceous gland canals can get clogged with epithelium particles preventing the natural oils of the eye to cover its surface. Hence, medical conditions such as blepharitis, atopic dermatitis (atopic eczema), seborrheic dermatitis or even rosacea can trigger it. If you’ve had stye before, you are more prone to developing chalazion.

3. Poor eye hygiene. Rubbing the eye with unclean hands and a poor eye hygiene can lead to chalazion too. If you have been prescribed eye drops or ointment, do not touch the surface of your eye or eyelid with the dropper. You may contaminate the content and instead of treating the infection, you may spread the bacteria instead. Also, if you go to a swimming pool, make sure the water quality is good and you use goggles if you want to swim underwater with your eyes opened.

4. Cosmetics. Do not borrow makeup products from other people and do not use tester mascara in cosmetics shops. It’s also important that you don’t share your towel with other people or use natural disposable wipes instead. Replace your cosmetics in a timely manner, wash your brushes and other objects that touch the face and eye area. Do not use contact lenses for as long as you have an active infection. If you need to wear them though, choose the disposable ones (which are discarded after a day of use).

A Home Remedy for Chalazion that Works

The first thing to do is to get a test done for staphylococcus aureus and then consult with your physician if the test comes out positive.

It’s best to treat the possible causes for your chalazion before starting the home remedy.

Here are the things you can do to treat chalazion naturally:

  • Wash your face with water and organic 100% natural soap (chemicals free) every morning and evening; you should also wash your hands as many times as possible throughout the day and avoid touching the chalazion and eyes with your hands.
  • Make eye compresses with 3% concentrated boric acid solution for both eyes, 3 times per day; hold the eye compresses on for 3-5 minutes.
  • Use the boric acid solution cold; apply the compresses after you’ve thoroughly washed your face with water and soap.
  • To get results, you should follow this boric acid remedy for chalazion for 1 month.

Other things to keep in mind while following this home remedy.

Whenever you feel the chalazion coming back (that eyelid itch) immediately apply a boric acid compress.

In addition, use 3% concentrated boric acid solution to wash your eyes with as frequent as you can in a day.

It’s also important to avoid exposing yourself to cold temperatures. In case you have to go out in the cold, cover your eye with a sterile eye pad.

Otherwise the chalazion abscess will close itself and the collected puss of the infection cannot be expelled.

Don’t try to remove the chalazion at home, but instead see a doctor and get it surgically removed.

Anyways, if you had or currently have chalazion, it’s best to keep a % concentrated boric acid solution in your house for immediate use.

Homeopathic Treatment for Chalazion

In homeopathy there are two remedies that can be successfully used in the treatment of chalazion.

If induction predominates, Staphysagria CH5 (7, 3 granules 3 times a day for 7-10 days) is the recommended medicine. If the inflammation prevails and there are yellow secretions around the eyelids Pulsatilla CH5 (7, 3 granules 3 times a day for 7-10 days) is what works best.

In parallel, these two glycerin macerates can be administered. We’re talking about Ficus carica buds extract (35-40 drops in the morning), and Platanus orientalis buds extract (35-40 drops in water in the evening).

Ficus carica buds extract has a regulating and immune stimulant effect, while Platanus orientalis buds extract is a valuable anti-inflammatory epithelial and cutaneous remedy. This homeopathic chalazion treatment should be followed for 2-3 weeks treatment.

Hopefully this home remedy for chalazion, the homeopathic cures and the few advice we gave you will help you out get rid of chalazion without any surgery.

Have faith that the body can heal itself if you help it, allow it and trust it. Stay healthy, naturally!
