    Ok, so sorry to know that you have got chalazion, which may leave your eyes some damages and affect your work and life. As a matter of fact, sometimes, at an early stage, it is unnecessary for you to applu hot compress to your eyes, only pills and eye drops could resist the problem from getting worse. But if the situation is pretty bad, you could do so. But everything should be supervised with a doctor.

    Yes, it is true. When the patient suffer from chalazion and his or her chalazion is not big, often its diameter less than 3mm, the doctor will suggest the patient hot compress every day until the chalazion disappear itself. When this method doesn't work or the chalazion is bigger, you will have to have a surgery removing the chalazion.

    Yes, you can use the warm compress to treat the chalazion. A chalazion is a lump of the upper or lower eyelid caused by inflammation of gland of the lid. Warm compression can increase the circulation of blood to the inflamed area and promote healing. I will show you the steps. Firstly, immerse a clean washcloth in hot water and apply the cloth to the lid for 10 to 15 minutes, 3 times a day for a month. The warm compress should allow the clogged gland to open and drain yellow discharge. You could have a try. Thanks.
