There is no ulceration of lesion even after 15 to 20 days . The lesion appears to be too big to be a phlycten.

What is this yellowish patch, some deposition scarring or avascularity (? Necrotizing)

Yes , yellowish area is elevated lesion . It appears to be avascular . It is more likely to be necrotizing type with inflammation.

Modular episcleritis

This looks like a scleral abscess if it's happen for the 1st time but if it's a case of repeated episode then a case of episcleritis. Treatment of both the cases are different and opposite . Scleral abscess.... Broad spectrum antibiotic like augmentin in higher dose. 2. Acelofenac + paracetamol+ serratiopeptidase combination One tab tds 3. Cap B complex If necessary I &D can be a choice also. Episcleritis..... Steroid and antibiotic combination eye drop , one drop 4 time a day. 2. Nepafenac eye drop one drop 3 times a day 3. Tab analgesic as per the need 4.Tab Vit C 5. Investigation to r/o tuberculosis and other systemic infective disease .
