Vanessa Cardy’s mom was right all along: applying warm compresses (or teabags) to hordeola, or styes, turned out to be a legit form of treatment. Topical antibiotics or steroids, on the other hand, are not helpful. Chalazia can benefit from intralesional steroid injections or even curettage.

How should we differentiate between a chalazion and sebaceous carcinoma? sounds like a scary mistake to make ...

Adrien Selim -

Hi Anastasia, great question. I use the "LUI" mnemonic (loss of lashes, ulceration and infiltration of the normal anatomy) to differentiate benign from potentially malignant eyelid lesions. This is from a Canadian Family Physician article from 2011. Here's a link: http://www.cfp.ca/content/57/9/1025.

Hope that helps...
