My inner eye on the bottom waterline is swollen and very painful to the touch. T's a little red too and itchy. What could it be?

Possibly sty: You may have a sty or blocked oil gland of the eyelash (gland of zeiss) that is secondarily inflamed or infected. Try mod. Hot compresses 2-4 times/day for about 10' followed by gentle massage with diluted baby shampoo on a clean washcloth. This should help it resolve in about 7-10 days. If not and persistent or worsening, then an exam is needed to verify the lid lesion. ...Read more

I was having redness & a small bulge in my inner lower eye for 3 days. Then it started draining sticky colorless fluid & then a little white fluid.

Stye?: Your description sounds like a stye. I assume you meant inner lower eyelid, rather than eye. A stye (hordeolum) is a plugged oil gland in the eyelid, which can sometimes become infected. Alternatively, it could be a plugged (and possibly infected) tear duct (dacryocystitis). In either case, I recommend seeing an ophthalmologist to be sure. ...Read more

How to treat painful red boil on inner right butt cheek with head that bleeds and has puss when I squeeze? Has a purplish tint to area

May need surgery!: Simply draining (even by a doctor), squeezing, or treating with antibiotics may not eliminate this infected sebaceous cyst. The cyst sac that produces sebum must be surgically excised to prevent its recurrence. If not, infection may actually end up destroying enough tissue that once healed it won't recur, but this is backwards "treatment." have a surgeon look at this and deal with it definitively! ...Read more

Sounds like you are : Going to need to see your eye doctor to get some prescription eye drops for your conjunctivitis as soon as possible to make sure you don't have 'pink eye'.

Itching can be a: Symptom of an allergic response or inflammation. The associated swelling of the delicate tissue could contribute to the discomfort as well. A chalazion (stye) would present itself on the lid margin or eyelid itself. You may want to consider an OTC allergy drop and if not better in 24 hours see your Ophthalmologist. ...Read more
