Detailed Answer:
Hello Madam,
Welcome to Health care magic.

I am Dr. Dadapeer K, an ophthalmologist and I answer health problems related to eye.

It seems from the history that you are having swelling of the upper eyelid with redness and a fluid filled pouch on the inner corner of the eye.
This indicates inflammatory swelling involving the glands of the eye lids.
The treatment is by use of antibiotic eye drops and antiinflammatory drugs. Applying hot compression provides symptomatic relief.
If possible do send a photo of the affected eye so that I can advice you more accurately.

Hope the information is helpful to you.


Thank you
