Could be many things: See your eye doctor urgently! If it's swollen for no reason that's not normal. You want to make sure there is no cellulitis developing or worse. Just because there's no itching or pain means it's not an allergy response, but doesn't exclude other causes. Don't delay! We only have 2 eyes. Want to make sure her intraocular pressure is safe too. She needs an eye exam!
