pus spot on eyelid

for the past week i have had a small ***** spot on the very edge of my lower eyelid (it also extends inside my eyelid a bit). it looks like it has a hole in the centre. it is not sore, but it is rubbing against my eye a little and making it red. could it be an infection of a tear duct? that's what it looks like. should i just leave it alone?

You must have typed "pus" wrong (probably an extra 's') Probably not likely the tear duct, that's a small hole at the inner aspect with a small mound of skin around it like a valcano (called the puncta). It would be styes, cyst, blocked oil gland. You might try warm compress and observation if it gets worse see an eye MD.

haha, yes, i did type that. it didn't even occur to me.
i don't think it's a stye because i've had those before and this is different. i think it's probably the oil gland option.
thank you!
