My friend is having a problem with her eye. During exams or while using laptops for a long time a swelling similar to a pimple appears on the eyelid and it gradually becomes big. She went to some doctors and had some ointment and antibiotics. But still she is not fully cured. Sometime mucus formation is also there inside.
