Sounds like it could be folliculitis. Wash this area carefully and you might benefit from a mild steroid like FML (fluorometholone) ointment when it pops up. Discuss this with your ophthalmologist.

What you describe is the eyelid's equivalent of a zit! occasionally, a gland in the eyelid gets clogged, and irritated. Try adding some hot compresses to your end-of-day routine. If that does not work, you may need to start doing regular lid scrubs with either dilute baby shampoo, or commercially available eyelid cleaners such as ocusoft.

The first line of treatment is a warm compress for one hour a day until the resolution is achieved. I also recommend cleaning the lid with a warm wash cloth twice a day.
