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

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

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
