Unclear: It is unclear but may be a small gland infection. I would wait and see as this does not appear to be serious as yet from what you have said. I would not wear makeup until this has settled down as this can sometimes aggravate eye problems. ...Read more

Many things: There are many conditions that can appear on the eyelid margin. It is impossible to diagnose without examination under a slit lamp microscope by an ophthalmologist. Eyelid styes, papillomas, blepharitis, even skin cancers can occur on the eyelid. If this bump is new, than you need to be examined by an ophthalmologist to determine the diagnosis and then further treatment. Good luck! ...Read more

Most likely a stye: Most likely it's a chalazion or a stye. They should resolve with warm compresses. If they don't it needs to be drained and at the same time I would. Biopsy it to make sure it's not a malignancy. ...Read more

Stye: At your age, this is probably a stye. This is a blocked gland in the substance of the lid which will produce a red swelling on the inside of the lid. If advanced it may swell the whole lid. To treat, use very warm washcloths socked from your water tap (not too hot). for about 5 minutes at a time, 5 times per day for several days . this will usually get rid of it. ...Read more

Eye: This could be a plugged up eyelid gland, either a sweat gland (sty) or oil gland ( chalazion). The usual treatment for both is hot packs applied to the site. If not better with that in a few days or if there is redness to the eye and/or discharge, you should get it checked by a doctor. ...Read more
