| | small red bump on lower eye lid
About six months ago, I got a sty on the inside of my lower right eyelid. I think it was from using a dirty eye shadow applicator. It was very painful and swelled for about 4 days before it popped and drained. I used hot compress to help ensure all the fluid had drained properly. It healed and went away without a trace except a slight red discoloration on the inside of the eyelid, which was fading pretty quickly.
About two months ago, I got another sty in the same place that seemed like it was on the inside of the lid again. Again, I believe I was being neglectful in the sanitation of my makeup. It didn't swell nearly as much or pop like the other one. I started the hot compress on the first day I noticed it. It seemed to bring it to the outside of the lid, just along the eyelash line.
It never hurts anymore. Sometimes I think it is healing, but I have been really stressed out with other medical problems I am dealing with right now, and am a bit ashamed to admit how much I have been crying. It seems to get more aggravated when I cry. It is a very small bump (about the size of the lead of a no.2 pencil), but it is really concerning me that it is still there after two months. Could this be because of my excessive tears lately? Should I see an eye doc for this or a dermatologist?
