Hi Anon

You may be getting a stye on your eyelid which is something that's often caused by bacteria.

Don't try to squeeze it or (heaven forbid!) put a needle on it, like some people do on a zit.

A warm compress on it, 4-6 times a day (for about 10 minutes each time) should see it leave by the weekend, give or take a day or two.

If you don't see any kind of healing by the weekend, consult your doctor. We're not diagnosing a stye - just suggesting that this may be what you have.

Good luck, I hope it clears soon!
