My 16 month old has had a bump on her lower right eyelid for almost 4 weeks now. Her Dr. said it's a stye at about 1 week. I took her back at about 3 weeks b/c I was worried it isn't gone by now. I think she may have contracted oral herpes, and I'm really concerned she could've spread it to her eye. It doesn't look like the pics I've seen of ocular herpes, but the cold sores I've had don't look blistery and vesicular like the pics either. I told her Dr of my concerns about hsv and she tells me no, it's a stye. Is it common for a stye to last this long? Does this sound like it has become a chalazion?
She was sick for a couple weeks with a runny nose (no cough), then once the cold(?) went away the stye popped up a couple days later. It isn't red anymore, but it is still swollen and there seems to be a knot at the center of it. I'm really worried about her. I hope someone has an answer.
