I have suddenly just got some redness with a lump on my right eye on inside corner and im not sure why?

I have suddenly just got some redness with a lump on my right eye on inside corner and im not sure why?

Probably stye: This sounds like it is in the substance of the eyelid. If so it is a stye, a blocked gland which is now becoming infected. If it is on the eye itself or the vision is affected you should see an ophthalmologist tomorrow. If it is a stye, you can treat it for a while with frequent very warm packs (four times a day or more) which will usually take care of it. ...Read more

Could be: Redness could be from a virus, allergy or rarely a bacteria. Clear lump if on eyeball could be a cyst from allergy or virus.

I have erythromycin ointment for eyelid lump and redness. Should this go in the eye? She said just to cover eyelid to base of lashes. Is this right

I have erythromycin ointment for eyelid lump and redness.  Should this go in the eye?  She said just to cover eyelid to base of lashes.  Is this right

Chalazion: Best easy approach is to apply dry hot compress to the eye lid for 5-10 min then apply the ointment inside the lower eye lid. The body temperature will melt it and it will go where it needs to go. Do this 4 times a day. If it is not resolved within 5-7 days it may need to be treated with minor surgery. The compresses may work equally effective without the ointment. ...Read more

Hard lump under the skin on inner thigh, bikini line, doesn't hurt. Feels like fatty tissue, no redness,no head. Kind of scared.

Stye: I am going to assume that this lump is on your eyelid and not your eyeball. If so, most probably this is a stye or chalazion is its medical name. Generally these are best treated with hot compresses. When they are unresponsive and have been there awhile they may need to be removed by your eye doctor. ...Read more

Is it the eye, or: the eyelid? If it's the eyelid, it sounds like it could be a stye or chalazion. These are blocked glands in the eyelid. The treatment is ibuprofen or acetaminophen and warm compresses. If it is the eye, not the lid, please see her pediatrician or eye doctor. If it doesn't get better with the treatment I mentioned, please have her examined. ...Read more

73yr old female with swelling along right side from eye to jawline. extremely red, and swollen lump at jawline. Has had no medical care for years, and refuses to be seen by dr. She has smoked for years, and drinks 2 beers nightly.

Healthy influence: That is a tough situation. I would advise you to encourage her to visit a physician using people she trusts for information. One must try to do their best ethically to encourage a friend or relative to seek medical care when appropriate but we have the freedom to choose when we seek medical care. Explain that she can get diagnosed but the choice to be treated would be up to her, and would be good. ...Read more
