HELP! There is something wrong with my eye?!?!?!


Question: HELP! There is something wrong with my eye?!?!?
So today I woke up and I looked up with my eye (so my eyeballs went up not my head) and I felt a tiny little pressure on my eye (right eye). I went to the mirror and noticed a tiny red spot somewhere above my eyelashes. I told my mom (i am gr 8 and from where I live I am in high school, we don't have the middle and senior school kind of thing.) and she said she had the same thing when she was younger and it was sort of like a pimple that grows on ur eye and it should go away in a few weeks, and she told me not to try to pop it or touch it or anything. but this is my first time having it and I am really worried. Is there anything I should do and not do while this happens? if u have had this b4, do ppl ever notice it or anything?

Answers:

Sounds like a stye. A stye is an infection that causes a tender red lump on the eyelid. Most styes occur along the edge of the eyelid. Styes are caused by a bacterial infection. Usually the bacteria grow in the root (follicle) of an eyelash.

A stye usually starts as a red bump that looks like a pimple along the edge of the eyelid.

As the stye grows, the eyelid becomes swollen and painful, and the eye may water.
Most styes swell for about 3 days before they break open and drain.
Styes usually heal in about a week.
Apply warm, wet compresses 3 to 6 times a day. This usually helps styes heal faster. It may also help open a blocked pore so that it can drain and begin to heal.
Use an over-the-counter treatment. Try an ointment (such as Stye), solution (such as Bausch and Lomb Eye Wash), or medicated pads (such as Ocusoft Lid Scrub).
Let it open on its own. Do not squeeze or open a stye.
Don't wear eye makeup or contact lenses until after the stye heals.
Don't rub your eyes. This can irritate your eyes and let in bacteria. If you need to touch your eyes, wash your hands first.
Replace eye makeup, especially mascara, at least every 6 months. Bacteria can grow in makeup.
Treat any inflammation or infection of the eyelid promptly. If you get styes often, wash your eyelids regularly with a little bit of baby shampoo mixed in warm water.

Yeah, it's okay. Nothing is wrong.
Just don't pop it- that could really mess stuff up and it would hurt A LOT!! D:
It's probably just a stye, it'll go away soon :)

Just calm down; don't freak out. If it's bothering you that much, ask the doctor about it.
