    Everytime I blink, my eye gets irritated. Neither my eye nor my eyelid are red. In fact, my whole eye looks normal to someone else.

    When I pulled my eyelids back with my fingers, I flashed some light to see what was causing the problem, and right under the eyelid I see a small little bump. It wasn't white or anything, it blended in with the eyelid, but it was a bump so I could see it. It wasn't big, it was small actually.

    Keep in mind, this is inside the eyelid. So whenever I blink, I guess this "bump" touches my iris and it really irritates me! I tried water, warm water, etc, just wouldn't come off. I don't think I'll be trying tweezers...

    Any suggestions? Might be a cyst and I'll have to wait it out.. Shit...

    Sounds like a simple stye to me.

    A stye, or hordeolum, is a small bump that can appear on the outside or inside of the eyelid.

    A stye develops from an eyelash follicle or an eyelid oil gland that becomes clogged from excess oil, debris or bacteria. Styes seem to be brought on by increased stress! :toothache

    I agree with MisterTwister.

    Put a warm wet washcloth against your eye a couple times a day for 15 minutes and gently massage the spot.

    Yeah it's seems like a stye, if you get a bit of gold like a ring or necklace rub it on the bump, it should disappear after a couple of hours
