Dermatologist 's  Response

Styes on eye lids are due to viral infection.

Hot foamentation would be helpful.

Broad spectrum antibiotics like Doxicycline may be taken for few weeks.

If there is pain, take anti inflammatory drugs like brufen combined with paracetamol.

Take immunobusters.

The knot on cheek would be acne conglobeta.

Apply adapalene gel.

Isotretinoin 10 mg would clear the lesion.

Still, you consult dermatologist.
