Clogged hair duct/hair follicle on eye lid

Does anyone else got one of these? I've had one for about two weeks now and it hasn't gone away. It looks like a tiny whitehead, but it's still annoying. Is it something else or can I drain it?

Try putting a warm compress on it for 5-10 minutes. Maybe it will unclog it. Can't hurt.

Re: Clogged hair duct/hair follicle on eye lid

I just noticed one tiny whitehead looking thing on my eyelid, around an eyelash today. Any ideas what this is?? How to treat it. I clean my contacts daily,

uberkelley is right. Warm compresses, about 4 times a day.
If it doesn't get better with that in a couple of days, then it's off to the doctor...
