Sounds allergic: What you describe sounds more like a allergic reaction to something you put on your eyelids. I would avoid all make up and try to find out what is causing this. You can use a steroid used for eyelids but this should be prescribed for you after you have been seen by an MD as you cannot just put any steroid on the eyelid. Duct inflammation another possible cause. See MD for proper diagnosis. ...Read more

Eyelid edema: Following intense emotional situations with crying, runny nose, and lots of wiping eyelids and nose secretions, the eyelids often swell, eyes look red, and the ocular surface may be slightly irritated. Mucous is generated by the eye in response to the irritation. Sometimes contamination can be introduced into the eye with all the wiping. Not usually an infection results, but if worse, see eye doc. ...Read more

Get sleep.: Interestingly sleep can actually make lower eyelid swelling worse because fluid accumulates in the head and neck region when the head is down at night.

I've always had puffy lower eyelids in the morning, but now my upper eyelids get puffy too. Is this normal?

Maybe: Puffiness of the lower and upper lids can result from fluid retention, sometimes worse in the morning due to lying horizontally while sleeping. When you stand up, gravity pulls the fluid down. The most common cause of "puffy" lower lids is fat prolapsing forward mimicking swelling. The upper lid skin can stretch and become redundant with age appearing swollen. ...Read more

I was hit in the head with a softball on yesterday.  The swelling is gone but now around my eyelid is puffy?

It will even flow from one side of the face to the other. More importantly one must rule out closed head injury or concussions along with local injury to any tissues invloved, especially to the eye if this is appropriate. ...Read more
