My daughters bottom eyelid keeps swelling 1st happened this a.m. there is no crust or running I gave her benadryl (diphenhydramine). Should I give her amoxicillin?

Examination needed: There may be a blocked duct in the lid causing the swelling. Have your physician examine her for diagnosis and the proper treatment.
