Your : Your symptoms suggest a stye, or blocked eyelid gland. The best treatment is warm compresses with a moist washcloth for several minutes four times daily. This will usually give improvement within one or two days. If your eyelid does not improve, you will need to see your ophthalmologist.

Puffy eyelid: Warm compresses and ocusoft plus lid scrubs, artificial tears, and possible antibiotic/steroid eye medication. See an eye doctor.

Make sure you don't.: Have an infected upper tooth, which can often cause the symptoms you have written about.

Either one will do.: It sounds like it is either a meibomian cyst or a stye. If you start with a GP, you can probably get it sorted out with less expense.
