If patients has fever with auricular lymph nodes cellulitis is another possibility. . If there are no systemic symptoms than need only Hot fomentation Topical ointment bacitracin or chloramphenicol in night and ciplox eye drops in day time. Nsaids can be given for pain and to reduce inflammation. . If there is pus pointing than needs drainage. . If systemic symptoms are present like fever, palpable local lymph nodes treat with oral antibiotics erythromycin or amoxi-clav..

Epilation of the follicle if root is involved.Hot formentation with application of steroid antibiotic eye ointment.Add systemic Doxy if these are repeat episodes.
