Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of reddish bumps that feel hot and cramps on the eyelids most often occurs due to the hordeolum, or the general public call it a stye. This condition occurs when the glands in the eyelids become inflamed. The glands in question can be Meibom's glands, Zeis's glands, or also Moll's glands. The triggers for this inflammation are usually related to infection, mainly due to bacteria. As a result of the inflammation that occurs, a lump will appear on the eyelid, which is reddish in color, the size of a pea, painful, and can also burst and then secrete like pus.
There are various factors that increase a person's risk of experiencing hordeolum, including those related to abnormalities of the glands in the eyelids from birth, poor eye hygiene, immune system weakness, and so on. Hordeolum is generally not a dangerous condition, and can collapse or rupture on its own without requiring special treatment. Although, in some conditions, the hordeolum will often recur and recur so that more invasive treatment is needed, for example surgery.
Not only hordeolum, you may also experience complaints due to other causes, for example folliculitis, blepharitis, acne, kalazion, insect bites, preseptal cellulitis, cancer, irritant contact dermatitis, and so on. Each of these conditions can have different treatments depending on the cause.
For that, in order to get proper treatment, you should check your condition directly to a doctor or ophthalmologist. As a first step, you should compress the lump on your eyelid with warm water to make it feel more comfortable. Elevate your head while sleeping so that the lump deflates. Avoid handling the lump too often, or giving drugs carelessly without a prescription from a doctor. Always keep the area around your eyes clean, protected from dust, pollution, irritants, and excessive cosmetics.
Hope it helps ..
