Dr. James :

Hello.

Customer:

hi

Dr. James :

Is it close the eye lash?

Customer:

the little bump is, but the redness spreads inward

Dr. James :

It sounds mostly likely a stye. The redness could be from the stye starting to drain.

Customer:

even though it never came to a head? It almost looks like a little open canker sore

Dr. James :

Yes, it doesn't always have to come to a head.

Dr. James :

I recommend you continue the warm compresses.

Dr. James :

If it worsens, then you may consider seeing your ophthalmologist who may recommend antibiotics.
