As I probed her palbebral conjunctiva, this came out, leaving a gaping hole. What is it, and how would you treat her? One OD describes a very unique case and their findings.

36YO Hispanic Female being treated over the last week for lid cellulitis and a “stye” in her left upper lid. She reports copious discharge OS and constant FBS and pain in her lid. She says that she got a large amount of dust kicked up into her eye, which lead to the initial pain and discomfort, but after rubbing it and rinsing it with water, she felt better. The lid swelled up the next day and has been swollen with no improvement.
