Stye - Eye Issue

There is pimple growing inside my right eyelid (note: pimple in not outside.) My eye is red and when i blink my eye, i feel itching, some time water/tears also come out of my eye. I feel great pressure on my right eye while doing sajda in prayer.

salam, styes are common problem.
A stye or hordeolum is a small, painful lump on the inside or outside of the eyelid. It is actually an abscess filled with pus and is usually caused by a staphylococcus bacteria eye infection. Styes are common with most people experiencing one or two of them at some stage in their life.

Soak a clean washcloth in very warm water and put it over the stye (wash your hands first). Do this for 5 to 10 minutes several times a day. Gently massage the area while the washcloth is over your eye. Clean your eyelid with a cotton swab soaked in watered-down baby ("no tears") shampoo every day or two.

Thanks for replying, yesterday i got my eye checked from general hospital. The doctor told me that its a viral infection and gave me prescription of using eye drop "Moxigan" 4 drops a day for two weeks and also advised to wear glasses and use separate towel/tissue and wash my eye with cold water.

yes you have been given an antibiotic which is fine to use and in addition you can use the remedies we discussed above.
but remember it will take few weeks before the stye resolves and even sometime it can months for the real lump to regress so dont worry too much.
however is the lump is growing with pain and redness then seek urgent medical advice.
