My dd2 has got a cyst on her eyelid after being hit in the eyelid by a swinging curtain wire (don't ask) at the beginning of Dec. The doc has only said it will go on its own and that it won't burst, and to use hot compresses. Getting dd to hold anything on it is basically impossible so we've been leaving it alone. It seems to have a yellow head and the skin on the surface is quite crusty. Should I just leave alone and pray it goes or is there anything else we could do?

Keep going with the hot compress if you can..
We're more of the squeeze and film brigade here.

If squeeze is the way forwards I'm all for it! It's bloody under the surface and scaly/peeling on the top
