Eyelids that are painful or tender to the touch are a common problem. This may be caused by infections, blepharitis, conjunctivitis, styes, or cyst, or may be a sign of a more severe condition such as Graves' disease. Children are prone to eye infections like chalaza and styes. If left untreated, these infections can cause orbital cellulitis, which primarily affects children. Adults should seek immediate medical care if unusual symptoms such as nausea and vomiting, severe pain, fever, seeing halos, and vision loss, follow the eyelid sores. Although sore eyelids are often easy to treat with a home remedy, it's important to see a doctor for comprehensive diagnosis and treatment. It helps prevent complications from using the wrong home remedy or a more severe complication like visual impairment from untreated underlying conditions.
