Hi, looks like you have developed stye. A stye is a red, painful lump near the edge of your eyelid that may look like a boil or a pimple. Sties are often filled with pus. Leave the sty alone. Don't try to pop the sty or squeeze the pus from a sty. Doing so can cause the infection to spread.Clean your eyelid. Gently wash the affected eyelid with mild soap and water. In most cases, a sty doesn't require specific treatment. A sty typically goes away on its own. Recurrences are common. Consult Ophthalmologist....
