In brief: Blocked Duct

After any eye infection (allergic, viral, etc) it is not uncommon to see blocked ducts that are located in the eyelid around the eyelashes.
This can create what many call a stye but is likely a chalazion or hordeolum. Either way, warm compresses and gentle massage can relieve the clogged duct. You may need antibiotic eye drops if the clogged duct gets infected. For now try the compresses and see.
