Stye - So basically, it could be a superficial bacterial infection in the eyelid. Usually, a stye like lesion heals in a week without any specific treatment, and pain is present in stye.
Chalazion - In chalazion, pain is not present and it can remain for more than a week.
So, you should consult a nearby ophthalmologist for examination of the lesion. If it is stye or chalazion, then in the eyelid, a red lesion will be present. Mostly you will be given a topical antibiotic ointment along with topical antibiotic drops.
I suggest you try doing the following:
A warm compress can be applied to the eye for three to four times a day, for better drainage of such lesion and for soothing.
Do not wear contact lenses for few days.
When you travel, wear sunglasses.
If the pain is more, then I suggest taking Ibuprofen.
With keeping all this in mind, consult a nearby ophthalmologist for examination.
I hope your concern is solved. Take care.
