Thank you. A stye can develop in lower eyelid rim. You’d have to lower my rim in order to see the white bump so it’s not directly on the lash line more inner.
Also could an eye cream have caused it ?

Thanks. It’s been a couple days now and I’ve been using an antibiotic ointment daily but it’s still there. Pain a little less.

If it doesn’t go way in a week what usually happens next or do most resolve ?
