Hi,

I thin I am suffering from pinguecula.... went out swimming and by the evening my eyes were red and now there's a yellowish bump one sclera with redness. Will I have to get operated. what could be the possible remedy.

The irritation is due to the chlorine.  I would not be concerned about needing surgery.  Treat symptomatically with tears and when severe with mild steroids.
