Hello
Welcome to Health care magic.

It seems from the history that you are having a boil in the eye. This indicates infection of the eye and it requires treatment by the use of antibiotic eye drops and anti-inflammatory drugs.
Applying hot compression provides symptomatic relief.

Hope the information is helpful to you.

Thank you
