For couple days now, the inside corners of my eyes, the lacrimal caruncle, have been enlarged. They do not seem to be very red or inflamed, but the increase in size is concerning to me. The night before they became enlarged, I did not get much sleep, which may have caused this. Right now, my eyes are dry so I've been using artificial tears 3-4 times a day along with warm compresses. I'm afraid this may be an infection, but it's not painful, not very red, no visible discharge (just some rheum during the day, very little at that) and it's not really itchy.
Is this an abscess and do I need to get this drained? Or will warm compresses and eye drops be good enough?
I attached some picture below. I think the lighting makes it seem more red than it is; when I look at it in the mirror, it seems like the normal shade of pink.
