I've been getting swollen upper eyelids (both) in mornings for like a month now. Is it allergies or blepharitis?
Could be both: Both allergy and blepharitis can cause chronically recurrent lid swelling. However, blepharitis is more common to cause the problem overnight. Allergy would tend to be a problem all of the time (with severe itching too), unless you are allergic to pillow case, detergent, etc. Blepharitis can respond to warm compresses, lid cleaning, and eye ointments, while allergy responds to oral antihistamines. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

All of a sudden my left eyelid had a lump now its swollen all the way. And i have.Allergies what can be the cause of this ? And how long will it last
Infection likely: A lump in the eyelid is often a stye or chalazion, which is a blockage of an oil gland in the lid. However, if the whole lid becomes diffusely swollen and tender, then it is probably infected (cellulitis), and this should be promptly treated, usually with oral and topical antibiotics. Sometimes allergies could cause lid swelling, but not usually just on one side. ...Read more
