Hi. It could be an stye. A sty 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. A sty usually forms on the outside of your eyelid. In most cases, a sty doesn't require specific treatment. A sty typically goes away on its own. Recurrences are common. For a sty that persists, your doctor may recommend treatments, such as: antibiotics, incision and drainage . consult Ophthalmologist...
