Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

I would suggest applying warm compresses and OPCON A eye drops available OTC. If it does not improve in 3 to 6 hours then get it examined by a doctor to find the exact cause.
