Lid hygiene: You probably have a hordeolum externum. Show it to your parents please. Ophthalmologists prescribe lid hygiene, which is gently washing your eyelids with cotton balls, warm water, and Johnsons&Johnsons baby shampoo. You can also use a hot pack four times a day. If your eye is red or you have ocular pain or changes in vision get seen right away. MDs usually give drops. Can use telemed
