    bubble on the eyelid


    "I am looking for a medication/ointment for a lump/bubble/blister that I got on my eyelid."

    "I am looking for a medication/ointment for a lump/bubble/blister that came up on my eyelid."


    Hi,
    Is any of these sentences OK, please?
    Thanks.

    Either is ok, but "bubble" is not correct in this context. "Swelling" is a possible condition. "Lump" usually implies something solid, and "blister" is a swelling filled with fluid, usually the result of friction.
