I used to get these when I was a kid, hurt like he11 sometimes and I recall having a medication (topical) that you had to put on it. Best to get a doc to look at it though, anything with the eyes you can't be too careful.

Doc realy can't do anything for it; He'll give you some opthamalic neosporin ointment just to keep it from getting infected. Warm compresses and washing you eye with saline is about the best thing to do to make it go away faster.

They come off pretty easy if you scrape it with a steak knife. Give it a try, let us know how it goes.

My Grandma used to use a hat pin. She did stick under hot water to sterilize if first.

Heat a Serrano Pepper in a pan until it gets hot without breaking the skin, with it as warm as you can stand rub it on the eyelid. It really works, BELIEVE ME!!!!!
