two months and I thought I’ll just give it some time and see what happens.

it and tried to make never eye contact with anyone.

a chalazion and trying endless hot compresses, I applied
apple cider vinegar for 5 days and 3 to 4 times a day. Take a cotton
and dip into apple cider vinegar and apply on chalazion for 60 seconds.
