Advice on a small bump on my daughters right eye

Thnaks, please send a pic of this bump

How long has it been for?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Have you seen the video?

Yes, I've seen the video

She has a small meibomian cyst which is due to blockage of the meibomian gland that lubriates the eyelids

I'll recommend warm compresses at least 3 times a day to help dissolve the trapped oil

You can buy over the counter chloramphenicol ointment to apply to the area 4 times daily for 7 days, this also helps wit the redness, soreness and to dissolve the oil
