Stye and Chalazion 麦粒肿和霰粒肿

A stye, also known as a hordeolum, is a red, painful lump that develops in the eyelid because of an infection in an eyelash follicle or eyelid oil gland. The most effective treatment is to apply hot compresses to this “pimple of the eyelid.” However, if the redness spreads across the eyelid, an antibiotic is needed to prevent the infection from spreading to the orbital tissue around the eye.

Sometimes the stye infection resolves but an eyelid bump remains – that is known as a chalazion. Although there is no infection, the eyelid oil gland can remain clogged, leading to a persistent bump. If a chalazion does not disappear with hot compresses, steroid medications may be necessary. In some cases, the most effective way to remove the unsightly chalazion is to remove it with a 5-minute procedure in the clinic.

麦粒肿,也称为针眼,是由于睫毛毛囊或眼睑油腺感染而在眼睑中形成的红色、疼痛的肿块。最有效的治疗方法是对这个“眼皮疙瘩”进行热敷。但是,如果发红蔓延到整个眼睑,则需要使用抗生素来防止感染扩散到眼睛周围的眼眶组织。

有时麦粒肿感染会消退,但眼睑肿块仍然存在,这被称为霰粒肿。虽然没有感染,但眼睑油腺仍然堵塞,导致持续肿块。如果热敷后霰粒肿没有消失,则可能需要使用类固醇药物。有时去除难看的霰粒肿最有效的方法是在诊所接受5分钟的手术将其去除。
