Suggest treatment for boil on the inner eyelid

i have small growth within my right eyelid. It is within the skin itself like if small ball was inserted into the skin. It's been there for two months now. Thought it would go down, but it hasn't. It is very hard and when i press against it, it hurts. Please advise.

Hello
Welcome to health care magic.

I reviewed your history.
It seems from the history that you are having inflammatory swelling of the glands of the eyelids in the form of stye.
This requires treatment by the use of antibiotic eye drops or eye ointment and antiinflammatory drugs.
Applying hot compression provides symptomatic relief.

Thank you
