Its the same eye, every couple of weeks it swells up and becomes sore.

He went to the doctor the first time and she said just to put a warm flannel on it, it didn't help and keeps returning.

Anyone know what it could be?

Eye ball or eye lid?

Eye lid

Where abouts? Around the lashes or above?

Is the swelling red?
