Welcome to XXXXXXX

There is sebacious gland at the base of eyelash.

You are probably suffering with the infection of this gland, which is known as stye.

To confirm diagnosis & for treatment, please get it examined with Eye specialist.

Meanwhile you can try warm compresses with tissue soaked in warm water containing boric acid power or tea without milk & sugar.

Eye ointment like Polymyxin-B can be applied before going to bed.

Antibiotics and incision may be required.

If you have further query, please feel free to ask.

With good wishes,
