A: A white pimple on your eyelid is most likely a stye. If you have associated itching or burning of the eyes it maybe related to a precondition of blepharitis. Use of warm compressors and antibiotic ointment may help.

Try warm compress: Some of these (especially if an early style is forming) may respond to warm compresses 2 to 4 times daily. If the lesion persists, changes, mor worsens, then best to have it seen by a physician.

Eyelid: This is likely a hordeolum or a cholazion. These are types of infection to your eye lid. The first therapy is a warm moist compress. The primary problem is an infected duct to the lash or a gland called a meobian gland. If you do not get a response to this in a day or so get checked. You may need an antibiotic ointment.

My upper eyelid has been swollen for five days now. I think its a stye but I can't see a small pimple or anything. I've cleaned it, but its still here?

My upper eyelid has been swollen for five days now. I think its a stye but I can't see a small pimple or anything. I've cleaned it, but its still here?

Possible concern: Eye lid swelling can come from coming into contact with something that is an irritant or from a stye as you suggested but it can be more concerning than this. I would have expected that after five days something "more" would be present and more obvious - like a discoloration, etc. I would actually have your medical provider evaluate it. You could attempt to apply some cold compresses until seen.

How do I treat a pimple under the eyelid.? Have a small pimple under my left eye that doesn't want to go away. The pimple feels like a hump.

Chalazion: A persistent bump under the skin of the eyelid is usually a chalazion, a cyst which encloses the debris from the battle of your body to overcome what starts as a stye. If small it can be ignored but if it embarrasses or bothers you, see your ophthalmologist who can remove it in a quick office procedure.

How long do pimples on the eyelid last? My 4 year old daughter has had one next to her lower lash line for over a year. It's gotten a little bigger.

Eyelids: Hard to say how long. It depends on the cause of the pimple. I would have your doc check it since you feel it is growing. Perhaps it is not a pimple.

I have what looks like a small wart/pimple on the inside of my eyelid, its the same size as that thin line of skin below the eyelashes. Itches a bit.

It sounds like it: Could be a stye or hordeolum. You can try applying warm compresses to the area a few times/day and if it is not improving or if it is enlarging, you should have your doctor take a look.

A small white pimple like bump appeared in the corner of my inner upper eyelid. It is tender to the touch and irritating my eye. Is it likely a sty?

A small white pimple like bump appeared in the corner of my inner upper eyelid. It is tender to the touch and irritating my eye. Is it likely a sty?

Yes: 25 year old lady with upper eyelid bump and eye irritation. It is quite likely a sty or chalazion. You can use a warm compress applied to eye for a few minutes and then wash your eyelid/eyelash area with some baby shampoo. If the problem gets worse, see your physician for an exam because antibiotic ointment can be used. Try over the counter artificial tears for the eye dryness. Vision blur? See MD
