Maybe stye : It is due to inflammation ( infection ) the glands under the lid , you tried hot compress , now it is time to get it drained by eye surgeon, a simple operation done in the office.

Hordeolum (stye): Yes. A stye is a plugged gland that forms a cyst. It is easy to excise if not responding to warm wet compresses.
