Is apple cider vinegar good for eliminating chalazion?
JAN 23, 2021
I have had a chalazion for over a year now. I visited my doctor before the pandemic who recommended warm compresses and antibiotics. Swelling went down but I have a bump. Is apple cider vinegar good for eliminating chalazion or will it cause permanent scarring?
Apple cider vinegar has been suggested as an antimicrobial and antiseptic. But it would not be effective in healing a chalazion since a chalazion is not an infection. A chalazion is a collection of oil trapped inside an oil gland. If you've had a chalazion for over a year, you might need a steroid injection or incision and drainage. You should discuss these options with your ophthalmologist.
