Detailed Answer:
Hello... I appreciate you uploading the image for my better understanding.
this looks like stye.
It is an infection of the glands in the eye lid.
Usually I suggest ciprofloxacin or gatifloxacin eye drops one drop every 6th early for a period of five days along with night time ciprofloxacin eye ointment to cover for 12 hours.
But all these are prescription drugs and you will require a doctor's prescription for it.
