Watch out for small bumps on your child’s eyelids
All the lively and dynamic Quan suddenly became regular, and rubbed his right eye with his small hand from time to time.
Grandma held up the reading glasses and found that the baby’s grandson’s right eye was a little red, and tears passed through the corner of the eye.
She carefully opened the whole right eyelid, and found a millet-sized mass in the upper eyelid.
Could it be “steal eye”?
Take a closer look.
It’s not like it, so he took his grandson to the hospital.
The doctor told her grandmother after the examination: the whole thing was not a “steal eye”, but a cyst.
The doctor’s diagnosis left my grandmother’s head full of fog: a swollen bulge?
what is this?
What’s the difference from “Steal Eye”?
How to deal with it?
The doctor explained patiently to grandma.
The little secret of the sacral swelling is that it is also called meibomian cyst.
It is the eyelid gland mouth involvement, which stimulates the tissues around the glands, causing chronic degradation, and gradually forms protruding bumps.
Although the upper and lower eyelids are involved, the upper eyelid is more likely to be injured.
Appears as the skin on the surface of the eyelids is bulging, and the lump under the skin can be felt.
The lumps vary in size, as large as cherries and as small as mung beans. They have no adhesion to the skin and no pain when pressed.
Lift up the eyelid, and you can see the purple-red granuloma prominent on the corresponding part of the eyelid conjunctival surface.
Some have short durations.
After a few days, it disappeared, the so-called “short-lived”: some overlap, and will last for weeks or even months; others disappear or have cured after treatment, and then a new lump grows, there is a momentum of “going forward”.
The diagnosis of granulomas is relatively simple. Any small tumor born on the meibomian gland has a protruded course.
It is not red and painless, the boundary is clear, and there is no adhesion to the skin.
Grandma asked eagerly again: “So, what should I do if I have a cyst?
“The doctor told her that it was relatively small in the early days.
Most of them can be absorbed by themselves and disappear without special treatment.
Or apply a local heat pack to speed up absorption.
Babies with chronic inflammation.
You can use 0.
5% chlortetracycline eye ointment.
If there is no resolution for 6 Wednesdays, then the complications will not be hindered.
But don’t worry, the doctor will make a small crack in the conjunctiva under local anesthesia and dig out its contents. The wound is generally 1?
Can be cured in 2 days.
If your baby is really afraid of surgery.
Prednisone injections can also be tried.
But the effect is not certain.
”Steal eye” and stye As for the “steal eye” mentioned by grandma, it is medically called external stye.
Because the eyelid has two kinds of glands, the sebaceous glands located at the root of the eyelashes are opened in the hair follicles;
These two glands are subject to a suppurative bacterial infection (such as Staphylococcus aureus).
Causes acute inflammation, collectively known as stye.
If it is sebaceous adenosine infection, it is called external styli, which is what grandma calls “steal eye”.
Itchy at the beginning and gradually intensified.
Eyelids edema, congestion, and pain and tenderness.
Especially in the “steal eye” near the outer corner of the eye, the pain is significant.
Conjunctival edema, lymphadenopathy in front of the ear, and tenderness.
After a few days, the lump gradually softened, and yellow pus spots appeared. Once the pus penetrated the skin, the swelling quickly subsided, and the pain eased.
If the meibomian glands are affected, they are called endomyeloma.
Because the meibomian adenoma is surrounded by strong meibomian tissue, it is obviously deeper, so the degree of redness and swelling of the eyelid is far less obvious than that of external maltoma.
After the glands are purulent, grayish-yellow pus spots can be seen faintly inside the congested eyelids. After the pus spots are ruptured, most of the pus fills the conjunctival sac in the eye, and a few can penetrate through the skin.
Individual severe children.
The fatal may spread to the surroundings and spread to the entire meibomium, forming an eyelid abscess.
How to prevent stings in the baby chicken market?
Originally, the eyelids of healthy people had sufficient ability to defend against external germs.
However, the child is young and ignorant, and often rubs his eyes with dirty hands, so it is easy to bring bacteria into the eyelids.
In addition, when a child suffers from malnutrition or some other systemic disease, which reduces resistance, it also creates conditions for purulent bacteria to attack the eyelids.
The treatment of stye should be early and more scientific.
To sum it up.
Pay attention to the following principles: ★ When the stye is absent or the abscess has not formed, you can do a local wet and hot compress, 3?
4 times, 20 minutes each.
Hot compresses can quickly circulate blood in the eyes, reduce swelling and relieve pain, and even lighter inflammation can disappear.
At the same time, according to the presence or absence of systemic symptoms (such as fever) to determine whether to use antibiotics such as penicillin, oral, injection or saline injection can be used instead.
For specific treatment, follow the doctor’s order.
★ Once pus spots appear.
In time, ask the doctor to cut open and drain the pus.
Don’t wait for it to burst on its own.
Because of a stye, especially a stye, if the pus is left to ulcerate after purulence, the eyelids are often deformed due to scarring, valgus or incomplete closure of the upper and lower eyelids, resulting in damage to the appearance.
★父母切忌自己当大夫，用手挤压脓点排脓，因为眼睑血管丰富，而且通过眼眶与眼内的血管跟’颅内的海绵窦“一脉相承”，挤压脓点会使炎症扩散，造成Bacteria “flood”, causing a series of chain reactions, such as orbital cellulitis, meningitis, sepsis, etc., serious life-threatening!
Therefore, it is wise for the doctor to perform a surgical incision to remove the pus.
★ Use eye drops reasonably.
25% chloramphenicol eye drops.
If there is too much secretion, you can use rifampicin eye drops.
After the child falls asleep, change to chlortetracycline eye ointment.
★ Appropriate supplementation of vitamins A and C, eating more fruits and vegetables, drinking cheese or fruit juice, eating less or temporarily avoiding irritating foods, these will help ease recovery.
Tip 1: In the early stage of onset, pycnidoma is quite similar to stye, such as eyelid swelling, pain or eye discomfort.
But after a few days, it became “clear and clear”: the above symptoms of phloem disappeared, leaving only a round, painless lump in the eyelid, and it will slowly grow; while a stye is worse, the pain is aggravated, and the swelling is obvious.
If parents can’t tell.
Ask your doctor for help in time.
Tips2: The sacral swelling can sometimes be worse, becoming infected by bacteria.
Once the granuloma is infected.
The symptoms and signs are almost the same as those of the cereal clock.
The main points of identification are: nodules or masses that are painless and not swollen.
Later, there are signs of infection such as redness, swelling, and pain.
The cereal bell is ill, and its symptoms such as redness, swelling and pain often appear at the same time as induration or lumps.
Tips3: After a secondary infection of the phloem.
It should be treated as a stye and wait for it to disappear.
It is best to do a surgical resection in order to completely resolve it.
