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. Use cold compresses for redness & swelling especially if had a cold: could be beginnings of viral conjunctivitis. See eyeMD if worsening or not improving.

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

Take your son back : to his pediatrician. Keep up the warm soaks 4-5 times a day. Otherwise, don't touch or press on the " pimple", which may be a secondary staph infection. Your son may need a referral to a pediatric ophthalmologist, an MD who specializes in eye disorders in children, to determine if it's a hordeolum or stye, which starts with blockage of 1 of 2 tiny glands, or a chalazion, which is not infectious. ...Read more

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
