Apply heat asap: You may have stye developing; apply hot towel without burning your skin to eyelids. If you do this 20-50 times per session (hot towel in hot water over your stye (avoid pushing on eye); re-heating when towel gets cold (like hot towel push ups), it will open the meibomian gland and allow the stye to resolve usually less than 3-4d. See eyemd otherwise. ...Read more

Stye: Please do not attempt to pop this again. You do not want to damage your eye or your eyelid. Warm wet compresses a few times/day to soften the abscess so it will drain on its own is a common first line for treatment. If infection ensues one does need to see the doctor. ...Read more

What : 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 eyelids’ 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

Pimple: You might have a stye, or hordeolum. This is caused by a blocked oil gland in the eyelid-- it is often tender to the touch. It can be treated conservatively with hot compresses and topical antibiotic for a few weeks. Sometimes, surgery is needed to drain the stye. If the bump is in the inner corner, you may have a blocked, infected tear draininge duct- this should be checked by your eye doctor. ...Read more

Inflammation: Emotional tears contain a large amount of sodium, unlike the normal tear which is low in sodium. The high salt content is irritating and can account for the red spots on her lid. Use a washcloth soaked in cool water to counter the problem. ...Read more
