You may be at the beginning of a viral outbreak in this area, either Zoster, HSV etc.

You might also have a stye starting to form in this area.

You could try warm compresses and artificial tears.

If it gets worse or doesn't go away the only real way to get figure out exactly what is going on would be with a complete eye exam by an ophthalmologist.

Does this make sense to you?

I am happy to be able to help you today. If you would be so kind, please help me get credit for my efforts in answering your questions and press the excellent feedback button for this encounter.
