Have lump below eyebrow, increasing in size, sore, red,swollen closing eye. What to do?

Two days ago I felt a red lump coming on underneath my right eyebrow and yesterday the lump appeared larger and protruded a little from my brow bone so I thought it was just an ingrown hair due to plucking my eyebrows, but I have woken up this morning with the lump much larger and sorer as well as redder and my entire right brow bone has swollen almost closing the eye. What should I do?

Thank you for posting your query.

Your symptoms and detailed description are suggestive of local skin infection.

At present, you need to take antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen.

If you do not improve, please show to your GP.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
