What to do if I have this white bump under my eyelid and my eyelid is swollen help!?

Stye: Styes are due to a clogges meibomian gland (mg).The trick is to apply as much heat as possible, without burning your skin, as often as possible, as soon as stye noticed (teas help due to heat, not tea itself). 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 mg. ...Read more

Likely a chalazion: Unlike styes (hordeola), chalazia are usually not on the border of the eyelid, but farther up on the lid. They sometimes will drain (usually under the lid) after hot compresses, but if they don't drain sometimes surgery is necessary to remove them if they are large enough. I'd recommend that your husband see an eye doctor (an md eye surgeon, not an od optometrist) for an opinion. ...Read more

Probably a sty: You probably had a blocked oil gland of the eyelid, either of the eyelash (gland of zeis) or of the inner eyelid gland (gland of meibom). Most stys will resolve themselves with warm compresses and eyelid massage, others may require an incision to drain. ...Read more

Need photo: At the onset of a stye/hordeolum, a localized are of the eyelid next to the eyelashes is red and swollen before forming a pustule, and occ that is visible only by lifting the eyelid. Use warm compresses. If you are referring to the corner or outer canthus where the eyelashes join, then this may be related to anything that causes eye irritation and excessive tearing, such as allergy or a bad cold ...Read more

My lower eyelids swollen, a bit red but hurts and a bump inside the eye   ,its been 4 days.Any advice ?

Stye: If this occurred rather suddenly, it probably is a stye, which is a blocked oil gland of the eyelid. It can become secondarily infected and can spread to adjacent tissues leading to cellulitis. Most of these styes respond to very warm compresses 3-4 times/day for 10' followed by gentle massage with a washcloth containing a small amount of baby shampoo. After a week, the stye should nearly resolve. ...Read more

Allergic reaction: It appears your face has come in contact with something your allergic to or you have eaten something you are allergic to. You should think about what touched your face or what you have eaten. Being in direct sunlight can cause a reaction like you have. If you do not have Glaucoma, you could consider taking a Benadryl (diphenhydramine) caplet and Zantac to help alliviate your problem. See MD as soon as possible. ...Read more
