For the past couple of days, my upper eyelid has been hurting. This morning i woke up and my eyelid has swollen and i have a really small white bump on the upper eye lid margin. My lower eyelid near my puncta was also swollen last week, but it was gone within a day or two.

Can anyone tell me what this is?

  • It could be a sty or a chalazion. Both can be soothed by warm compresses and tend to resolve on their own. If you have drainage, the pain increases, or if the bump spreads/gets larger, I would recommend seeing an opthamologist.
