Hi there, my 2 1/2 year old daughter has a pea sized lump on upper eyelid, been referred to opthamologist but worried sick. Had it for ages but not causing discomfort? Anyone had experience of similar???

It looks like a Chalzion. I've had one myself and toddlers can get them too.

They sometimes come from an infection called Blepharitis which is an infection of the eyelashes. Has DD ever had crusty eyelids?

No not really but she has had a few styes on the same eye.

They may have been chalzions also OP...they can come and go. I had mine removed...minor op.

Did you ever find out what the issue on her eyelid is? Did it went away. I just noticed the same on my 2 years old toddler.

Please let me know. Thank you
