Painful Lump Under Eye

I was removing my makeup earlier and when I went across the skin directly under my lower eye lashes I had this intense pain. When I move the skin it seems there is a small lump in there and it painful to the touch. What could this be? Can't get to an eye doctor atm. Thanks.

Sounds like a stye.  When I get them I use warm washclothes several times a day and the swelling goes down.

Yes use warm compresses 3-5 times day for 5 minutes. If gets worse see ophthalmologist.

The lump is not on the lower eyelid but below it like near the cheek bone. I can't see it unless I move the skin and when I do that it hurts.
