Ophthalmologist 's  Response

You are suffering from a stye in your eye. You should perform hot fomentation and anti-biotic drops about 4 times a day. Also, take oral anti-biotic and anti-inflammatory tablets for about 5 days, If there is no yellow point. However, if there is a yellow point, infected hair follicle has to be epilated (removed) by an eye surgeon and the stye needs to be drained.

General & Family Physician Dr. Ramesh M.Vachharajani's  Response
Welcome to HCM,
From your history it seems that you might have 1, infected stye or 2, Mybabian cyst.
Go for one course of antibiotic and anti-inflammatory medicine and you will be alright.
If there is Mybabian cyst then you have to go for excision of the cyst.
Put antibiotic drops in eye every 2-3 hours.
Ok and bye.
