In medical terms, this is called as Stye . It is a small, painful lump on the inside or outside of the eyelid. It can be external or internal in nature.
This is usually caused by infection with staphylococcus bacteria. It is caused by an infection of an eyelash follicle or by an infection of the sebaceous (Zeis) gland.
Usually, styes get better without treatment within a few days or weeks. And You should never attempt to burst a stye yourself.
You can go for warm compresses, Here a warm compress is a cloth or flannel warmed with hot water. The warmth of the compress will encourage the stye to release any pus, which will drain away.
You can repeat this three or four times a day until the stye clears up.
For associated pain, you can take OTC Tylenol or Motrin.
In case symptoms doesn't start to improve in next 3-4 days, then you would need antibiotics from your doctor.
This is contagious, So you should keep eyes and hands clean, and don't share pillowcases, bedsheets, washcloths or towels with others.
Most cases, of stye would get better by its own with above measures.
Hope this helped
