Suggest treatment for stye in the eye

Okay, so the other day when I woke up I had a hard time moving my eyes side to side and up and down. It hurt to move and it was kinda stiff. Just today, in the corner of my eye it feels like a stye, but I see no bump on my eye lid or under my eye lid. My eye is red and still hurts to move it side to side and up and down. Is it just a scratch?

I appreciate your concern.

Redness in eye song with pain on eye movement is matter of concern, which might be related to conjunctivitis, corneal or scleral disease as well as eye lid disorder.

At the outset if possible upload me a photograph for better assessment of the condition.

Meanwhile instill antiseptic or antibacterial eye drops to avoid superadded infection, take rest,use dark goggles when you you go out. wash your eyes with lukewarm water.
