The blockage of sebaceous gland duct leads to formation of a cyst. It may cause eyelid tenderness, painful swelling, and smelly white secretions from the sac.

The prime treatment for sebaceous cyst is to apply warm compress for 10-15 minutes for 3-4 times a day. This will help the hardened oil blockage to soften and promote drainage and healing.

Watchful waiting will help, as these cysts often shrink on their own. Proper cleaning of the eyelid will avoid its reoccurrence.

Consult an ophthalmologist, who would prescribe you appropriate eye drops for the cyst and if it is too big and infectious he might recommend surgical removal of the same.
