Couple things can cause a swollen eye: allergies, trauma (a scratch), a stye, infection (pink eye or cellulitis). Concerning symptoms include significant discharge, pain, and blurry vision.

I got stung by a wasp yesterday, when I woke up, my eye is swollen shut, lip swollen & my other eye is swollen, should I be checked out by a doc?

Maybe: Assuming you got stung near the eye, swelling it not unusual. It is very often worse in the morning because of the affect of gravity while you are sleeping. The swelling should get better during the day. If there is increasing redness or pain then you should be promptly checked for an infection. Otherwise, if you are not too uncomfortable and things are improving you can give it a bit more time. ...Read more

Child woke up with very puffy/swollen eyes slight fever last night and cough, very light rash all over face and torso no other symptoms?

Watchful wait: Sometimes children will wake up in the morning with puffy eyes from a back up of fluid from their nose/sinus area. It sort of pools in that area (if you will). Important considerations would be 1. does it go away over the course of the day? 2. does it worsen over the course of the day? 3. is she she dehydrated? 4. is she urinating as much as she usually does? If not better in 2 days, go see doctor ...Read more
