i have an infection in my skin under my eye lid. will cipro help
Dont mess around when it comes to your eyes. You need to go to an ophthalmologist and get a diagnosis. If there is a hard red, pimple-like lump just up from the lashline on your upper lid then it could just be a simple chalazion and all you need to do in many cases is just do warm soaks several times a day. Use a clean wash cloth and wet it down with warm water, very warm, but not hot enough to burn the skin, apply that to the area and let it sit until it cools, do this about 4 times a day and within a few days it should drain and go down. On occasion, they need to be drained surgically. You really should see an ophthalmologist though, rather than trying to treat something yourself.
