chalazion or also known as "ketumbit"

That is how my Bea2's eye for the past er....4 months. I admit I'm guilty of not doing anything about it, except waiting for it to disappear. But that's what people telling me, that thing just go away.

But a mother would try not to let her daughter celebrates Hari Raya like that. I brought her to a GP. I had not even gotten the seat when he annouced that he could not do anything about it. He mentioned a word that I didn't really get, till I googled "cyst eye", the word chalazion appears here

Malay calls it "ketumbit". This joke has been around as long as I can remember that if you are naughty, and likes to peep other people, particularly when people doing business in the loo, you would get one.

Anyway, the doc. advised if I really wanted it gone right away, a minor surgery can be done at any eye specialist clinic or in my case the UMMC.

Off we went to the hospital, only to be advised by a doctor that they would try to avoid doing surgery especially on a small child as it involves general anastesia. I was advised to do warm compress on that area with an application of eye ointment/antibacteria cream. She will consider a surgery in the next appointment in 2 months, if the thing is still there.

So, now you know;).

We were there for only less than 1/2 hour. The good thing is, me and the elder girls got to spend some time at the Ikea after that;).

Ooh, I hate those things. Your girl can tahan for 4 months???? Hope the cream works. My girl would get it sometimes and I would put Savlon. Probably not advisable but it stops it from getting bigger. Good luck!

hi, my daughter pun prone to get it. 2 gps tak berani kasi ubat and advise to wait for it to resolve on its own...finally went to paed and he explained my daughter has mild ekzema and when she scratches and transfer to her eyes jadik impertigo. so gave her antibiotic cream for the eye and antibiotic for makan...it's getting smaller but very slowly. another dr advised kalau tak sabar tuam pakai sudu panas..so that ketumbit leh pecah and cepat heal...hope that helps..
