You may have a stye. A stye occurs when oil glands in your eyelids get blocked, very similar to a pimple. Treatment is to apply warm compresses to the area 3-4 times a day. This helps to soften the blocked oils and allows it to self drain.Sometimes the stye can cause an infection that spread throughout the eyelid. In this case, antibiotics pills are needed. If you notice increasing swelling or pain, see your primary care doctor or ophthalmologist for a prescription.
I will try the compresses however i have do that with no help
How long have you done the compresses?
since last night and during the day today
It usually takes a few days to take effect. I would give it some more time. If it's worsening, then you should see a doctor promptly.
