Most chalazions -- and inflammed gland of the eyelid -- are treated with warm compresses to the eyelid to promote healing and circulation of blood to the inflamed area. In addition, the doctor may prescribe an antibiotic drop or ointment to be used immediately after the compresses. If the chalazion persists and is causing an unsightly lump, it can be removed surgically through the inside of the lid.
