You could be having blepharitis in your eyes. It may of staphylococcal type which often leads to chalazion or stye (bumps) in your eye. Lid hygiene is the most important thing. You should daily scrub your lid margins with diluted baby shampoo. An eye ointment like Tetracycline should be applied at bed time. Lubricating eye drops and warm compresses will also help. You can see an ophthalmologist to confirm this diagnosis. To read more about this condition, you can follow this link - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blepharitis. Thanks.
You are most welcome. I am from India and so I am not not very sure about your country but still I think you will get it OTC. You should remember the drug name Tetracycline. Lubricating eye drops you will certainly get. Thanks.
