Ophthalmosis, commonly known as "eye-catching needle", is a common eye disease caused by the sebaceous glands of the eyelid hair follicles being blocked. The patient's eyelids will produce small particles. In addition to their personal physique and hygiene, they may also be related to eye makeup, dry eyes, stress and diet. Pathology and acne are similar, and acne is not contagious. Eye acne may also cause redness, fever and pain in the nearby eyelids, growth of abscesses, and even bacteria. If the surface of the eye is cracked, pus will occur.
If you have eye irritation, the patient should not be forced to squeeze, so as not to make the abscess bigger and the bacteria into the blood. Early eye acne can be prescribed by an ophthalmologist for anti-inflammatory and antibiotic eye drops or eye ointments, and combined with hot compress treatment. If you are unfortunately suffering from eye acne, early treatment is an opportunity to completely reduce the acne, thus avoiding the need for eye surgery.
If the eye acne has pus, or if the acne does not completely resolve the acne, the ophthalmologist may recommend a cut eye surgery. The doctor will first perform local anesthesia for the patient, then open a small wound in the position of the eye sore, and squeeze out the abscess. The surgery usually only has slight discomfort and will not be very painful. Children who need to have an eye-cut surgery may need to be sedated by an anesthesiologist. This will not only make the operation smoother, but also reduce the child's psychological fear and unnecessary pain. Except in a few cases, the wound is usually in the eyelids, and no scars will be seen from the outside after the operation. Postoperative patients need to continue to use the prescribed drugs and hot compresses to achieve the best therapeutic effect. In some cases, a doctor may recommend a steroid injection.
