I recently had cataract surgery (1 in December, 1 in February) and encountered "blocked oil ducts) for the first time.
I never experienced these before my cataract surgery, but at different times, I got one on the rim of each low lid.
At a surgery follow-up appt., I asked what it was and he sais, "that's just a clogged oil duct" and suggested I heat a potato in the microwave, wrap it in a washcloth and apply to the eye.
Well, that worked on one easily enough, but the next time I got one it didn't budge with this method.
It eventually cleared on it's own while I was really hot & sweaty, doing yard work.
Last week I woke up and underneath one eye was so swollen, it looked like I had been punched in the face.
When I looked inside my lower lid (not just on the rim, like the others had been) there were 3-4 of them.
I went to my opthamologist and he said again, "they're clogged oil ducts", gave me an oral antibiotic and an antibiotic drop that I can only use once a day and told me to do the hot potato thing, again.
Knowing the hot potato never worked on one that I had before, I heated a terra cotta coaster in the micro, wapped a washcloth around it and it worked.
Never has he said anything about a fungus being involved and I don't have dry eyes, either. He also said nothing about using baby shampoo, etc.
I haven't worn eye make-up since my last eye surgery, not even mascara.
I have to wonder if there are multiple conditions that may present with these tiny blisters or 'heads'?
