How long?: It depends on how long it has been there. It could be a stye or chalazion. If it has been there a short time, warm compresses can help. Occasionally they have to be drained. If it has been there a while, get it checked out as it may need to be removed. ...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

This : This is most likely a chalazion which is an obstruction of an oil gland in the eyelid. Warm soaks 3-4 times a day can help, but if it does not resolve, you need to see an ophthalmologist for treatment which may be medical or surgical. ...Read more

Probably not herpes: If this dot is next to the colored part of the eye on the nasal or temporal side, it is probably a normal structure called the pingueculum. It might have a slightly yellowish tint. This is your eyes protection against wind, dust and uv light. ...Read more
