Chalazion or stye: You may have a gland that is blocked or a stye. Usually stye point in and painful. Chalazion usually painless and point out. If you are bothered see a doctor to fix it.

Very warm compress: As well, use a washcloth, get very warm under water (not hot, as sensitive area). Use as a compress on the swollen area for about 15-20min couple times a day.

A 23-year-old female asked:

Is there anything to be concerned about if you have one eyelid that appears to be lower?

If not born this way: Most people don't have perfectly symmetrical faces, so one eyelid may be lower than the other. If a person always had one eyelid lower, from birth or early childhood, that is likely normal for him. However, if an eyelid goes lower later in life, there may be a problem with the muscles of the eyelid or the nerves controlling the eyelid. An ophthalmologist (eye specialist) can figure it out.

Yes: Gentle massage with eye closed with warm compress. Also can let 'no tears' shampoo run through eyes and help clean out glands. Use j&j name brand baby shampoo, some generics burn. If not improving see eye doctor.

Stye or chalazion?: These are kind of like folliculitis for the eye-lashes usually caused by bacteria. Start with warm compresses. Don't squeeze it. You can pick up some otc solution or ointment to use. If it's getting worse or not getting better, go see your doc to make sure that that's what it is. Xanthelasmas are cholesterol deposits in the eyelids that are benign and also on the differential.

Bug bite: If 1 lid is swollen, with little/no pain, it's usually a bite and will get much better by tomorrow. Or, she slept too hard on that side.
