Painful White Bump On Inner Eyelid

My 3 yr old was rubbing his right eye today and complaining that it hurt.  He's previously had a tiny red bump on the lower outside lid in the line of lower eyelashes about a week ago.  Thats went away.  

Just looking at him he looks fine. However because he said it hurts I pulled the lower lid down some to reveal a larger white bump on the inside lid.  What is this and what should I do for him??  Would eydrops be of any use?  Please advise as soon as you can.  Thank you.

Usually its a blocked oil gland, sometimes they can get infected. I suggest warm compresses if he will let you and tomorrow see your pediatrician or an Eye MD to evaluate for possible antibiotic drops/ointment.
