Hello
It seems from the history that you are having a nodular lesion on the eye ball. This can be nodular episcleritis, inflamed pinguecula or pterygium.
The treatment is by use of antiinflammatory eye drops.
Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for confirmation of diagnosis and treatment accordingly.

Thank you
I find this answer helpful
