tiny pimple in corner of eye w/ white heads

I have 3 tiny pimple-like things in the corner of my near the tear duct. What is this? I have recently had a cold sore  and I freaking out thinking that I gave myself ocular herpes.

Probably plugged oil gland (Meibomian gland). Very unlikely ocular herpes.

hi
like jjmom3 i have like a tiny white-heads like thing near my tear duct. I'm wondering if there's any way I can get rid of it or what it is called. I am just worried because it's getting bigger. Thank you.

Thanks a lot!

Those are generally the openings of the Meibomean glands, about 40 on each lid, sometimes they can be opened with with compresses and the use of a lid cleaning product like Ocusoft, Eye -scrub or Theratear-Sterilid cleaning foam.
