My 3 yo has somekind of stye/zit for more than 2 months now. It is located on the lower eyelid, around 2-3 mm from the margin, on the exterior side. When swolen, it looks like a small zit (2-3 mm wide). The problem is that is doesn't seem to heal completely... After being swollen/red for 1-2 days, the top gets yellow, then it retreats and dries to the point that only a small circular scar is visible. Unfortunately, after 1-2 weeks its starts all over.
We are not aware of any skin (or other health) issue, and this is the only stye/zit.
I'm adding 2 links with pictures with the zip swollen (it does't get worse than that)
The ophthalmologist that saw her last month mentioned something about "some kind of stye", "foliculitis", and, in order to avoid useless trauma to the child, asked us to come back a few months later if id doesn't get fixed by itself. Since then there is no change, it's recurring.
So we would be grateful for a second opinion and maybe some info on the associated surgical procedure and how it can be performed on small children.
