Could be either: You need to see your doctor or an urgent care to have the eye checked. There would be different treatments depending on whether it is allergies or infection. Do not put your contacts in again until this has been treated.

See doctor: This description of your eyelid suggest allergic reaction ,as long as there is no greenish discharge .you may have some itching also if it is due to allergy .Let your doctor examine you and decide what treatment you need
