Default My chihuahua has something wrong with his eye

My chihuahuas name is taco. He is a very happy dog in a very happy home. The only stress he indures is the little discipline he gets for not pooping on his pad(I love my dog TO DEATH so just know i do not beat him but I have to train him still so he does get spankings) (he hates going outside and pretty much wont use the bathroom) lately he has finally learned to use the bathroom on the pad so he doesn't even get disciplined anymore. Also my son has kids in and out all day and Taco DOES NOT LIKE new people he is scared of them but at the same time he constantly barks and true to act tuff so that could be stress. But what I'm posting this for is when we first got him (from my aunt and uncle) he had this red bubble like thing somewhat popping out of the bottom of his eye. Then after awhile, it disappeared. And ever since then it has come and gone randomly.
My guess is it could be a sty. I have no clue about these things but that'd be my guess. He isn't in pain (or at least he doesn't act like it whatsoever) I just hate seeing it there cause it could bother him just not hurt him. If I could just get some insight from anyone that might have any idea of what's going on. I would post a picture but for some reason it won't let me upload it off my phone. If you know what's happening and would really kmow if you saw a pic. If you'd be amazing and ask for my number I can text you and send you pictures! Thank you

Sounds like what is commonly referred to as "Cherry eye". We had a Chi with it, never bothered her. Do a quick search online for cherry eye and see if that's what Taco has.

I second the 'cherry eye" diagnosis.

No spankings please.! It will make him poop in hidden places. I use an Iris pen to confine my chi's , until they are pretty reliable to the pads. His carrier/crate goes in there, his food and water dish, and a large pad (34x36")washable or a disposable pad. A few toys for him to chew on will help too. Unless you can watch him, he is in the pen.

From what i"ve read, I think Taco is scared or timid in nature. How old is he? He barks, as you said from stress and fear. Have the kids try and drop and tiny bit of treat as they walk by. No speaking, looking, or picking up for now. After Taco gets to looking at the kids for his treat, then they could squat down and offer him one. No picking up or playing yet. Just keep this routine up, and hopefully it will work. (I have one that is 8 years old, and has not responded to this treatment. Congenital, mother was the same way)

Sorry but despite what you say you can't love your dog to death and also "spank " him !!! if you loved him you would research some modern cruelty free methods of training him instead of the outdated methods you prefer, no wonder he's nervous.
