I have a red spot in my lower eyelid. Now i  see a little white stringy fluid around it. Should i be worried? Should i just let it pass?

Stye or a Chalazion : More often than not the red spot is a stye or a chalazion! they can burst and have yellow stringy stuff come out and it may be infected. My suggestion is start warm compresses to the lids 10 minutes at a time, twice daily and see your ophthalmologist soon. ...Read more

Give it a few days: This is a common therapy for what you describe. I would give it a few days to look better before asking your doctor to reassess the situation. If you begin to notice a crusty discharge from the eyes or the redness begins to extend beyond its initial area call back earlier. ...Read more

Eye irritation: I am sorry to hear about your eye pain, how long has this been going on? Many times the mucous membranes can make a clicking noise when the wet surfaces of the membrane and the eye are in contact and are rubbed apart. Initially, I would not be too worried about the 'pop' you heard unless your symptoms are not improving. You may try warm or cool eye compresses with a clean washcloth initially. ...Read more

I have a small red painless bump in my lower eyelid margin (kind of the crease of the eyelid) for almost 2 months. What could it be?

Eyelid styes, papillomas, blepharitis, even skin cancers can occur on the eyelid. If this bump is new, than you need to be examined by an ophthalmologist to determine the diagnosis and then further treatment. Good luck! ...Read more
