Not a very clear picture but it looks like allergic conjunctivitis when correlating with the symptoms . I'm assuming the symptoms were bilateral. 1)Simple tip to rule out internal hordeolum: In addition to the swelling on the lid, on examination of the lid margin, the opening of the affected meibomian gland will be inflamed and projecting out. 2) Meibomitis has many presentations. Most commonly, a frothy discharge over lid margin. Another is a toothpaste like secretion on pressure over the meibomian glands. Yet another is an oil droplet like discharge on pressure over the glands

It could be Trachoma becoz of the scarring. Tx earlier was with Sufacetamide 20% eye drops and Sulfa e.g. Septran DS for 3 weeks.
