It s not a white head as I have tried to squeeze and would expect it to be gone in a few weeks. Colour has been same all time and it has not been inflamed

Ophthalmologist 's  Response

It appears that might be having some conjunctival heaping which is caused due to chronic irritation of the eyes. You should use some lubricating eye drops along with some decongestant drops in the eyes for a few week and also use protective goggles to prevent irritation to the eyes. Cold water splashes to the eyes will be useful.
