Alternative names
Bump on the eyelid; Stye
Most bumps on the eyelid are styes. A stye is an inflamed oil gland on the edge of your eyelid, where the lash meets the lid. It appears as a red, swollen bump that looks like a pimple. It is tender, especially to touch.
Causes, incidence, and risk factors
A stye is caused by bacteria from the skin that gets into the hair follicle of the eyelash. Hair follicles contain oil glands that become inflamed from the bacteria. Styes are similar to common acne pimples that occur elsewhere on the skin. You may have more than one stye at the same time.
Styes usually develop over a few days and may drain and heal on their own. A stye can become a chalazion -- this is when an inflamed oil gland becomes fully blocked. If a chalazion gets large enough, it can cause trouble with your vision.
If you have blepharitis (see eye redness), you are more likely to get styes.
Other possible eyelid bumps include:
• Xanthelasma -- raised yellow patches on your eyelids that can happen with age. These are harmless, although they are occasionally a sign of high cholesterol.
• Papillomas -- pink or skin colored bumps. They are harmless, but can slowly grow, affect your vision, or bother you for cosmetic reasons. If so, they can be surgically removed.
• Cysts -- small fluid-filled sacs that can affect your vision.
In addition to the red, swollen bump, other possible symptoms include:
• Tearing of your eye
• A gritty, scratchy sensation as if there is a foreign body
• Sensitivity to light
Signs and tests
A doctor can diagnose a stye just by looking at it. Special tests are usually not necessary.
• Styes and chalazions can be treated by applying warm compresses. Apply for 10 minutes. Do this 4 times a day.
• DO NOT attempt to squeeze a stye or any other type of eyelid bump. Let it drain on its own.
• Antibiotic creams may help recurrent or persistent styes. Some large styes need to be lanced to drain the infection.
Expectations (prognosis)
Styes often resolve on their own. However, they may recur. The outcome is generally excellent with simple treatment.
• Recurrence of a stye
• Spread of infection to other eyelash follicles
• Spread of infection to the tissue of the eyelid (eyelid cellulitis)
Calling your health care provider
Call your doctor if:
• Your have problems with your vision.
• The eyelid bump worsens or does not improve within a week or two of self-care.
• The eyelid bump or bumps become very large or painful.
• You have a blister on your eyelid.
• You have crusting or scaling of your eyelids.
• Your whole eyelid is red, or the eye itself is red.
• You are very sensitive to light or have excessive tears.
• A stye comes back soon after successful treatment of another one.
• Your eyelid bump bleeds.
Always wash your hands thoroughly before touching the skin around your eye. If you are susceptible to styes, it may help to carefully clean off excess oils from the edges of your lids.

Could be a Chalazion. You probably need to see an Ophthalmologist to make sure. There is simple treatment for it if that's what it is.
Hope this helps!

my sister had one on her eye the doctors said it was a stye ... she had to get it removed .... he said its caused by a closed tear duck ? whatever that means?

go get it checked for sure.... its no big deal but just to make sure.

sometimes it's caused by dirt from your eyelashes ... watch them really good with like Johnson baby shampoo .. then put a warm cloth over it for a couple hours. i bet it will feel better ...and may even go away after a couple days.

It could be a sty, there are over the counter remedies, but my best advice is to see your doctor to get the proper diagnosis.

You have a Sty

Does it hurt? If so, it could be a stye, which is an infection on your eyelid. It's kind of like a pimple. Warm compresses really help for the pain if it is a stye.

sounds like a stye. Those are painful. But you should put a warm washcloth over it and don't use any makeup until is goes away.

Sounds like a Sty

My bro had one under each eyelid...well, sort of inside the skin. He went to the Doc who said they were a blockage of some gland. They irritated him but they did not hurt too much.

He was prescribed a course of Anitbioitics (i forget which ones) but they made little difference. So, he has recently had to have them cut out - sounds harsh but it was really nothing; a local anesthetic injection in the side of the ocular region, the eyelid was inverted and a tiny incision was maye to get the thing out.

He had a purple eyelid for a few days from the injection but there was absoultely no scaring. He had to wear a patch over the eye for a day so he had both eyes done on seperate days.
Dont worry about it but, with everything, it is best to see a Doc A.S.A.P

Easy, girl!

A sty probably.

Could be a stye.

It could be a pimple.

Okay....okay....I'm going to go with stye as well.....

Could be a stye.

It's probably a sty. Here's a definition from the Mayo Clinic:

"A sty (hordeolum) is a red, painful lump on the edge or inside of your eyelid that may look like a boil or a pimple. Usually a sty is filled with pus. As it swells in size, the sty may make it difficult for you to see clearly because you can't fully open your eye.

More than one sty can occur at a time, leading to a generalized inflammation of your eyelid — a condition known as blepharitis. Fortunately, most sties disappear in just a few days. In the meantime, you can sometimes relieve the pain or discomfort of a sty with simple self-care treatments."

Is it on the inside or the outside? The outside might just be a pimple...the inside however, like everyone is saying..is probably a stye or chalizion. Its pretty much a pimple just inside your eyeld and it tends to be very uncomfortable. Some people get these regularly (me, for one)...there is no medication that will make it go away any faster, trust me, i've tried. To help it feel better, take my advice. Take a hot wash cloth, and put it over the eye, specificly putting pressure over the stye. leave it there for about 15 minutes, 3-5 times a day. this will help it eventually pop and then its gone! Also, try gently massaging it just with your index and middle finger twice a day...dont put too much pressure though! I hope this helps. good luck!
Also, just be aware that you may wake up in the morning, and that eye with the bump on it willl be stuck shut..if this happens dont be alarmed! its because the stye has popped..just clean off the crusty grossness and be on your way :)

Yes, it is a hard bump a little smaller than the size of a pea. Now, go see a physician.

Sounds like a chalazia.

A chalazion grows more slowly, deeper inside the eyelid than a stye. Though it usually does not cause pain, a chalazion may last for several months. It may form a firm lump under the skin of the eyelid, and the inflammation and swelling may spread to the area surrounding the eye.
