Brief Answer:
Seems like an Eye sty.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for the query.

An eye sty (stye) is an infection of the eyelid, resulting from a blocked oil gland. These often filled with pus. A sty usually forms on the outside of your eyelid. But sometimes it can form on the inner part of your eyelid.

Treatment suggested-
Eye drop Ciprofloxacin 0.3% (eg. Ciplox) 2 drops thrice daily.
Eye ointment Tobramycin thrice daily.
Tab Cefixime 200 mg twice daily(antibiotic), you may need a prescription from your local doctor for these
Tab Diclofenac 50 mg twice daily after food(anti-inflammatory).

Take them for 5 days.
Wash the eye with cold water twice daily.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
Thanks!
