White head near eyelashes
I have a very small white bump almost on the line with my eyelashes. Yesterday it was just swollen and a little painful but now a small bump has appeared. Any idea what it could be? Hopefully not a stye and how could I treat it? Thank you so much!

its probably is a form of sty (hordeolum).  warm compresses twice a day helps.  an eye doc could Rx something to make it go away quicker.  depending on the location, you could be talking about your punctum:

It's almost in that region but on the upper eyelid....how about wearing contacts? Would it be ok to wear them for a few hours a day and how long should i leave the compress on? Thanks again
