See an eye doctor: Bumps at the edge of the eyelid can be caused by infections or blocked tear glands. The appearance will help to determine which one you have. Since the treatment for each is quite different, an examination will be necessary to get your lids healed as soon as possible.

Styes : Hordeolum or styes are from clogged oil ducts in your eyelid . Warm compresses and lid scrubs are helpful for treatment and maintenance.
