ask: I have a red bump on my eyelid. What is it, and what should I do?

I'm not sure if this is a "stye" (spelling?) or not on my eye, but it is a little itchy, and red and tender. I have two of them, actually, on the same eye: one on the upper eyelid, and one underneath on the lower eye lid.

Is this an infection, or allergy or something else? Will it go away on its own, or should I do something about it?

I have had this red bump on my eye for the last three weeks.... It is very tender to touch, very sensitive to move my eyeball around, and hurts very bad to blink.I had an eye doctors appointment today, but I had to cancel do to another issue. I need to know how to knock this pain out. Is it temporary? Need your help. I am so sore. Please help me now!!!!! Love, Brooke

Hi, last week on Thurs. I saw a bump develop and now its like a pimple on my upper eyelid. My eye is not swollen but looks like a pimple in the edge of my eyelid. Its red because I've been picking on it. My daughter bought me a product called 'Eye Relief for Styes" but I don't think its a stye but more like a pimple. What can I treat it with in order to have it removed. The edge of the pimple has a little white dot on it. I believe it looks like puss. Very uncomfortable because I cannot wear make-up. Please help!

it is not serious if the top bump does hurt when touched or rubbed.

Yes, when I touch it, it hurts like a pimple and it bothers when I blink. Imagine, having a pimple in your lid. What should I do? Thanks Much

i think i have the same thing on my lower eyelid. what i do is i just put heat against it. for example, i make some hot tea and let the smoke come against my eye. then it goes away in a few days or a week, depending on how bug it is. but it is due to some dirty stuff on your eyes or near it.
