Hi there I understand your concern... History that you mentioned suggestive of infection in upper eyelid...I would suggest you to use warm compression and over the counter pain medications to reduce pain and inflammation... You will require antibiotic ointment or eye drops...Consult nearest ophthalmologist they will do the needful.
