10% benzoyl peroxide cream on a chalazion?
My daughter is putting 10% benzoyl peroxide cream on a chalazion on my 4 year old grandson's eyelid.  Is this ok?

Not a good idea in my opinion.  Benzoyl peroxide is a free radical generator... and of course we all don't want free radicals because they age us.  

It's just hard on the skin for anyone at any age... and for a 4 year old who has his skin just developing?  I don't think it's a good idea.

Should talk to your doctor.  He could give some antibiotic eyedrops or special eye ointments for it.  

Usually they clear up on there own... but sometimes it could take a year... or even a month with treatment.   Depending on the severity it could also cause astigmatism.

Do not put benzoyl peroxide on a 4 year old, very irresponsible to do.
