I have this Pimple or acne of very small size just like a dot on the lining of upper eyelid periphery . I had this earlier few weeks back and it is still there the small mark, just small dot. When this happens it feels itchy. Can any one suggest why it happens and how to do away with it. The itching ended in few hours 5-6.

You probably have milium, filled with clear fluid. It may feel itchy but not painful as your symptoms are.
Scratch with strike spud it will evacuate and that's it.

Sounds like you could have an internal hordeolum or a stye (infections of the glands inside the eye lids).
1) Hot fomentation over the swelling 2-3 times everyday should take care of it.

2) oral antibiotics like Azithromycin 500mg for 3 days.

3) Proper lid hygiene is a must for prevention. Clean you lid margins using a ear bud dipped in a solution of warm water and Johnson 's baby shampoo regularly
