Detailed Answer:
Hi there,
Thank you for asking question on HCM.
Its infection of eyes called Sty very common in adults. A sty is a red, painful lump near the edge of your eyelid that may look like a boil or a pimple. Sties are often filled with pus.

Rx,
Eye drop Ciprofloxacin 2 drops twice daily(antibacterial).
Eye drop Naphazoline 1 drop twice daily
Tab Allegra (Fexofenadine) 180 mg once daily.(antihistaminic) before going to bed.
Tab Amoxicillin 500mg twice daily , you may need to get a prescription from your local doctor for this.

Wash eye three times with cold water.
Don't rub eyes.

It will take around 5 days to settle down.

Thank you.
