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
Oil gland problem: This could be a problem with the oil glands along the margin of the eyelids. They can be inflammed (blepharitis) or drain poorly (meibomian gland disease). This can cause itching, sorness, redness, and lead to chalazia (styes). The pimple may be a stye or small abscess. An eyecare specialist should see you, but typically hot compresses and lid cleansing (baby shampoo) can help. ...Read more

What you describe sounds like a chalazion or commonly known as a stye. Try placing a warm wash cloth on the lid three or four times daily. If the stye does not go away, there are other treatment options and surgical options you may discuss with your ophthalmologist.
Styes can also be associated with lid margin disease.
Lid margin disease is a common and frequently chronic inflammation of the eyelids. Symptoms include irritation, itching, and, occasionally, a red eye. This condition frequently occurs in people who tend to have oily skin, dandruff, or dry eyes.
Bacteria normally reside on the skin, but in some people, they thrive in the skin at the base of the eyelashes. Nearby oil glands may be overactive, causing dandruff-like scales and particles to form along the lashes and eyelid margins, which can cause redness, stinging, or burning.
Lid margin disease cannot be cured, but it can be controlled with a few simple, daily hygienic measures, such as the following:
at least twice a day, place a warm, wet washcloth over your closed eyelids for a minute. Rewet it as it cools, two or three times. This will soften and loosen scales and debris. More important, it helps liquefy the oily secretions from the eyelidsâ€™ oil glands, which helps prevent the development of a chalazion, an inflamed lump in an eyelid oil gland.
With your finger covered with a thin, wet washcloth, cotton swab, or commercial lint-free pad, gently scrub the base of the lashes for about 15 seconds per lid.
When medications are necessary, they may include:
artificial tears (over-the-counter eyedrops) to relieve symptoms of dry eye;
antibiotics (oral or topical) to decrease bacteria on the eyelids; and
steroids (short-term), to decrease inflammation.
Medications alone are not sufficient to control lid margin disease; the application of warmth and detailed cleansing of the lashes daily is the key. ...Read more

There is a pimple like that hurts inside my eyelid. Do I need to take in any medicine to stop it from getting bigger? What medicine?
Warm compresses: A "stye, " a.K.A. Hordeolum, is a plugged oil gland in the eyelid, sort of like a pimple. Most of the time, it can be effectively treated with warm compresses. These loosen the oils and allow them to be expressed from the lid. If persistent, a hordeolum can become a chalazion, which often needs either a steroid injection or surgical excision. See an ophthalmologist to be sure. ...Read more
I have a white pimple like bump on my eyelid rim it comes and goes for about a month. Stays for like 4 days gone for a week than back?
I have a pimple like ball on my eyelid I have put ointments and it didn't seem to go away then again I've had it for a couple of months now?
Stye?: Could be one of several things, but chalazion (stye) is probably highest on the list of differential. Studies have shown that warm compress is really the only nonsurgical treatment that works. Steroid oinment may aid warm compress, but alone does nothing. However, if its been more than a month, chances are, nothing will work other than incision and drainage. Go see your eyemd. ...Read more
Eyelid pimple: Please see an ophthalmologist to make sure your pimple is a pimple. Styes are infections of the eyelash hair follicle and can be treated by ointments, warm compresses and oral antibiotics sometimes. It is important to follow this and make sure it goes away. Very rarely, skin cancer such as basal cell carcinoma, can mimic a stye and the diagnosis can be missed leading to a larger surgery later. ...Read more
I develop swollen under my lower eyelids! When I blink it hurts and it's very red inside! I don't think it's a sty cuz there is no pimple there!
Internal sty: There are stys that are external (the pimple is easily seen) and those that are internal (the pimple is not visible, as in your case). I suspect this is the case for your condition. Warm compress the area, gentle massage and see ophthalmologist if symptoms are not improving in a day or two. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
