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. ...Read more

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

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

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

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
