It seems from the history that you are having a boil inside the eye. The boil is caused by infection of the gland of the eyelids. The boil is caused as hordeolum
The treatment of the condition is by use of antibiotic eye drops and anti-inflammatory drugs. Applying hot compression provides symptomatic relief.
The recurrence of boils is seen in conditions like uncontrolled diabetes, uncorrected refractive error, exposure to dust and repeated rubbing of the eyes.
If you are having any of the predisposing factors that needs to be attended.

Thank you
