Pea size bump on eyelid-no blisters but discharge&crusts,light hurt before.Is it HSV virus?Had HSV blisters-same eyelid(diff location)few weeks ago.

Herpes also loves to come out in the same area -so it could well be HSV again. Sometimes a bacteria (Staph) will attack the eyelid-this would be a sty and is quite painful.

How will peroxide/bacitracin bth affect staph &or herpes or any puss filled draining sore on area above clitoris ...Started itchin then bump busted?
Depends: Peroxide will provide variable levels of killing for staph, and Bacitracin is an antibiotic against streptococcus; it has poor activity against staph.
