This really does need to be checked out by your vet at your earliest convience as they could be an ulceration. For now, you can flush the eye with sterile saline solution to rinse out any foreign matter that might be in the eye causing the discomfort and the saline should give her a bit of relief. If the eye is swollen, she may have been stung...if you think this is a possibility, you can give her 1-2mgs of plain Benadryl to help with the reaction. Good luck and hope she feels better very very soon. :)
