when did this start?

you likely have a stye.
it may be early in the process so not a focal area of inflammation but rather more diffuse.
warm compresses is the best for now.
if it worsens, you may need antibiotics from your doctor.
there doesn't seem to be a pimple
yes, it can involve more than one gland and the swelling be more diffuse.
i am going out of town on tuesday , do you think I should see the doctor before I go
difficult to know over the internet. continue the warm compresses. if it continue to worsen, seeing a doctor monday would be best since you are traveling out of town.
great thank you
