I am trying to find out what this pea shaped bump is on my eyelid ?


Hello there

Most bumps on the eyelid are styes and they can be pea sized or even larger. A stye is an inflamed oil gland and it can resemble pimple but when you touch it it is tender and reddish.

It is possible to have more than one stye on your eyelid so if you are fighting with just this one you can consider yourself lucky. There can happen even worse. Stye can become chalazion and this happens when oil gland becomes fully blocked. This is my problem for the past few years. Sometimes chalazion is causing troubles with my vision but usually there are no major complications.

You can try to get rid of your bump by using warm compress on your eye. If this doesn’t help than visit your doctor.
