In brief: Naah

Sounds like a chalazion or stye.
Apply hot compresses for few days. If no better, see ophthalmologist for drops, steroid injection, or incision.

if you squeeze it and it drains it will feel better for a few days but will invariably recur. Also the squeezing pressure and spread the bacteria deeper and cause a cellulitis, eye lid infection

Please make sure you see an ophthalmologist or an oculopastic surgeon.
