Hello Good morning let's first understand what chalazion is? we have tarsal/meibomian glands in our lids. their mouth opens at lid margin just behind root of lashes. Their function is to secrete oils si as to prevent tear film from evaporation. sometimes when their passage or opening is blocked these oils does not come out and there is inflammation which leads to swelling resulting in chalazion Treatment: we have 3 options 1. medical management: a. hot fomentation b. lid massage with index finger firmly vertically from up to down starting from 1 cm from root of lashes to lid margin. c. apply azithromycin ointment locally over lid margins Repeat this process twice daily everyday for 1 month and it resolves in majority of patients If it fails 2. Intralesional kenacort injection 3. Surgery I hope this will help you

Chalazion is associated with meibomian gland & usually not associated with pain gradually increasing in size ,there is no medicine if it is not inflamed due to secondary infection. It can be removed by minor surgery ,incision from conjunctival side having no scar on  skin,you may consult ophthmologist for surgery & it is outdoor door procedure ,no need to get admitted in hospital, with regards
