You've got a stye developing there--an infection of the lid

You can try warm compresses and oral ibuprofen for now but if it continues beyond another two days you'll need to see your doctor for a course of oral antibiotics

Please let me know if you need any more information

Sorry but we can't give prescriptions here--that would be both illegal and malpractice

But an urgent care center doctor could do that for you
