    and I had planned to sew all day. Not so much fun when the eyes are messed up. grrrrr. Already gave the lashes a good scrub with diluted baby shampoo. I wonder what brought it on this time; I have not had any problems for years. Oh well - if all else fails, I'll take the pirate route and use an eye patch - arrrr.

    Too bad, they do hurt. Hopefully it will go away soon and you'll be back to quilting. Feel better!

    Those are such a pain....literally... you can't go wrong with a nice warm compress.

    Oh what a pain, make yourself a cup of tea and put the tea bag after it's cooled on your eye. My sister used to get them all the time and a tea bag relieved the discomfort.

    Hope you are feeling better soon.

    Try a little baby oil. It softens up the skin and makes it better immediately.

    I've never had one nor has anyone in the family. I wonder what causes them? Any cure or treatment?

    I have never experienced one either, and don't want to start now. Praying that you are getting better and tomorrow, it will only be a memory! :lol:

    Thanks you lovely people. I'll try the tea bag idea with camomile except I won't drink it. My mom always made me drink camomile tea when I was sick as a kid.

    It needs to be a regular tea bag. It's the tanic acid in the regular tea that helps draw the fluid out of it and take the swelling down, it works pretty good, hope youre feeling better soon.

    Feeling a lot better this morning. Swelling is down - I think the smell of chamomile did it. (All those awful childhood memories possibly forced my body into submission - lol) Good thing too, since I WILL quilt today.

    I had my one and only several years ago while working for an optometrist. He told me to put warm compresses on it. I hope it goes away quickly for you!!
