The sty of the eyelid usually resolves with hot compresses. As for the unrelated bumps elsewhere, I believe they be keratosis pilaris and may feel better with moisturizing lotion & creams, and sometimes better with exfoliation lotions. However, to be certain, an examination of your skin would be necessary. A family doctor may be all that is necessary, or if particularly stubborn, a dermatologist.

There are two or three pimple like bumps that have popped up on the top of my head. They are really hard? What is this? They don't hurt.

Scalp?

Head
If on the scalp, they're probably sebaceous cysts. If on the forehead, could be acne or warts. See your doctor to get it taken care of.

I have these little bumps that start looking like little pimples and a few of them have developed into hard puss filled lumps. What could it be?

Depends where locate

Pimples
located. You might be having MRSA lesions/boils develop, and it would be good to know what part of your body it's happening.You want to prevent against secondary bacterial infection, so it may be good to visit your doctor, and have it examined, so it can be proactively treated. Pus is never a good sign, and indicates infection starting. Make sure you aren't eating foods you're allergic to as well.

Poss staph infection

"Pimples" outside of "acne age" and outside of acne-prone areas can be folliculitis. One cause of folliculitis is the staph bacteria. Topical antibiotic, antibacterial soap and even oral antibiotics are sometimes used.

I get small hard bumps, like pimples, that grow on the inside of my thighs. I do not have herpes or genital warts.?

Folliculitis?

Acne
Sound like either folliculitis- an infection of the hair pores or hidradentits suppurativa- a condition caused by blockage and inflammation of specialized sweat pores (apocrine glands). Both can be treated with oral and/or topical antibiotics. See a dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.
