Swollen sore right eye

Hello, I am an engineering student, staying in Hyderabad. I developed this condition 5 days ago, where my eye got slightly swollen and something like a pimple developed inside it. I consulted a general doctor and he said that the pimple was on the inside of the upper eye lid of the right eye. He prescribed me the ointment moxicip, and serax forte tablets. The condition was quite painful yesterday but it's been getting better with the prescribed treatment. The problem is i don't fully trust the doctor, as i went to him as a last resort, and he isn't an eye specialist. So is this medication good for my situation or if there something better that i can use? I am also attaching a pic of my swollen eye, taken before i started any treatment for it... Hoping for a helpful response.
