I have a white pimple like dot on bottom inner part of my eyelid. I at times feel a sudden heat or cold feeling and then the eyelid gets inflamed bot?
Bottom inside eyelid really red. There was a white pimple like dot there but now its only red with slight swelling.
Stye?: If this little eyelid bump is on the margin or slightly inside, it may be a blocked oil gland (stye). These are generally sore to touch and may drain, which if into the eye, may cause redness, mattering & blurry vision. Some result in significant eyelid swelling. Apply warm compresses 2-4 times /day followed by gently massaging the area. Most resolve in 7-10 days. If not or worse, See an Eye MD. Read more

If it's bothering you and growing and changing shape, it must be looked at by your eye doctor right away to determine what it is, and to look at it under a slit lamp microscope.
