Swollen eyelid, redness, bump below eyebrow. Cause?

I woke up this morning and my right eyelid is swollen. At first i only noticed the swelling . the longer i have been awake, it is getting sore, turning red and now i notice a red bump just below my eyebrow. I have had a stye before, but never a bump below the eyebrow. this seems to be different than a stye. what could be causing this?

Dear user
From history it is clear that you are having inflammatory swelling of your right eyelid. since as you say it is not like stye which will be seen at the lid margin. I think you may be having hordeolum internum which presents similar to stye except for it presents away from lid margin and more symptomatic condition. The treatment is by oral antibiotic drugs, oral antiinflammatory drugs , hot compress and antibiotic eye ointments. Please contact near by ophthalmologist for confirmation and diagnosis
