Hordeolum: what you're describing is a blocked follicle. you can use an ointment. best to see your GP for the ointment. Alternatively, you can do a virtual video consultation through the Discovery DrConnect app or website where we can assess and send a script if necessary. Kind Regards Dr Aylwin David Nathaniel
