White pimple in eye, tender bump, undereye swollen with fluid, what could be this ?

I had one stye in my eye 6 months ago. A couple of days ago, a bit of dust or something got in my eye, and within a few hours I started getting a bump inside my right bottom lid. Yesterday I awoke to a swollen undereye starting about 1/2 below the lower lid: it looked almost like it had fluid retention, but was very soft. Today that swelling is a bit greater, there is some swelling close to the lower lid too, but is flat between the 2 swollen areas. The white of my eye is not red, I have almost no oozing, did not wake to crusty, it does not itch. It just feels uncomfortable, there is sensitivity/ pain if I touch on the outside where the inner pink with white inside bump is, and looks bad. I ve been putting leftover (still valid) Erythromycin Opthalmic Ointment .5% in the eye 2-3x/ day since day 1, and have done about 6 hot compresses.... What is it? What else can I do? About how long till it goes away?

Thanks for query,
It seems that there is allergic oedema in your eye due to some irritant fall in your eye.
put antibiotic and anti allergic eye drops in your eye.
within couple of days you will be alright.
if there is no improvement,consult ophthalmologist.
ok and bye.
