My 14 month old had an infected lump on one eyelid for a week, then her other eye-lid grew a lump. She has had these lumps for 3 weeks, and now a lump has formed on her bottom eyelid. The dr presribed an ointment and the infection has almpst cleared but the lumps still remain. Any information would be helpful. Thanks.
