Hi, Dr Ashori here. Is the eyeball okay without any pain or discharge?

Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 2 months ago.

Sudden pain in the eyelid, burning or any other irritation is usually caused by 2 things: 1) developing stye 2) cold sore outbreak.

A cold sore can happen on the eye, nose and of course the lip.

A stye is benign but means that a gland in the eyelid is plugged.

Best way to treat it is to go in the shower under warm running water and scrub the eyelids really well. Sometimes even with a bit of baby shampoo.

Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 2 months ago.

The next best step is to do the scrubbing daily and wait to see if a rash or swelling might develop.

It doesn't appear to be anything serious based on what you have said.

I wanted to throw this in, any chance you touched a spicy substance and then touched the lid? Unlikely, but I thought I should mention it.
