White bump on the side of my cornea

My eye got irritated about 5 days ago, with reddened right side of the sclera and painful and itchy sensation. But today I noticed the small white bump, ~1mm in size, on the side of the cornea. I see it is a bump, not just a spot, from the reflection of light.

The spot is on the left side of corneaon photo, near the redness.

What could this be? How to treat this?
I think this is some kind of infection, producing some toxin that reddens the sclera.

The image is not clear, but the spot does appear to be in the cornea.  Do not attempt to treat this yourself!  You need to see an ophthalmologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.

While waiting for the reply, I think I found an answer myself.
This is the small corneal ulcer.Bacterial infection.

Treatment could include some prescription antibiotic eyedrops.
Or herbal treatments also work. For example, drops of onion juice and honey solution. Also an herb Euphrasia officinalis. Also soap in water solution.

Correct me if I am wrong.
