@Evie19: I think that they can go away rather quickly if treated nicely. Warm compresses for 10-15 minutes at a time, 3-6 times a day (I’d go long and often with the upcoming wedding). Don’t put makeup on it, and do not squeeze it!

There are also creams or antibiotics to use, so maybe check in with a doc tomorrow to see about the best course to take with your wedding this weekend, and then you could make a ‘just in case’ appointment for Friday if you’ll need their assistance (they can lance it). 

Best of luck. I hope it goes away quickly!

Also make sure you change your eye make up. What you have now could be infected!

Make sure to get plenty of sleep, lack of sleep can be a trigger…

@Evie19: Some stay small, some get a bit bigger. I think after a few days it should ‘open up’ and then go away. The key is being patient and not poking/squeezing it to aggrivate it. A doc may have a way to speed up the process, though. 

Be sure to do like PPs said, get rid of that old eye makeup and get lots of sleep (and water). Only touch your eye with clean hands and only for compress application. You shouldn’t wear your contacts either, just glasses.

Noone can say for sure how it will look in 4 days but if you do the compresses and (here’s the most difficult I’m sure!) try to relax, you should be ok 🙂 Keep us updated !

I think it will go away with the compresses and the medication, but I am no expert.

@Evie19: They all vary, depending on the bacteria/infection, stress, poking it, treating it, etc. I sure hope that it just maintains size and gets smaller, but just keep up the compresses and the gel from the pharm. I hope it just goes away for you, a bride needs as little to worry about as possible 🙂
