Eyelid Pimple | Chin Pimple | Back Pimple


What do we mean by Eyelid pimple or pimple in eye?

Swelling on the eyelid, also known as a hordeolum, is a small infection of the eye glands located in the eyelids. The glands around the edges of the eyelids become sticky and swollen until small pimples appear. It can also be caused by a blockage in the hair follicles located on the eyelid. This infection produces a red bulge on the eyelid that looks like a pimple.


Most pimples originate outside the eyelid while some originate within the eyelid.

There are two types of Hordeola:

External Hordeola – occurs when the infection occurs outside the hairline.

Internal Hordeola – occurs when infection occurs within the hairline.
