I noticed a very small ulcer on the inside of my lower

This answer was rated:

I noticed a very small ulcer on the inside of my lower eyelid after I woke up yesterday morning, only because of a slight pain. It hasn't gotten any worse. I don't want to have to miss work if it is a virus and not bacterial. Is there anything I can do temporarily for the discomfort? Thank You!

It it hard to tell exactly what it is from by your description, however there should be no reason you can not go to work. I would try natural tears 4-5x/day. If it is still there on Monday you could consider checking with your ophthalmologist.
