I developed two chalazae on bottom of my both eyelids. I did warm compression every day for about a month. However, the warm compression caused huge blisters to form on my eyelids. I was told to make the towel as hot as possible so that chalazae will melt. The edges of the blisters are lifting as if the blisters are about to come off. Do warm compressions cause blisters? If so, will they heal on their own? Why do they look as if they're about to fall off? Will warm compression (pretty hot) damage my eyelid tissue?
Warm compresses don't cause blisters. HOT and VERY HOT compresses do so don't use anything more than warm. Use the search feature and archives and read the many posts about "chalazia and chalazion" and "Blepharitis"
