Styes: If you have styes, then you likely have have underlying blepharitis (lid inflammation) which is causing your meibomian glands to become occluded and infected (like a pimple). Treatment is usually warm compresses for at least 12 minutes followed by lid massages with possible antibiotic/steroid combination eyedrop.See 1 more doctor answer
I squeezed a stye I have had in my eye for awhile and this morning I woke up with my bottom eyelid very swollen should I be worried?
Treatment of stye: A stye is usually a self-limited localized infection in the eyelid. Squeezing it probably caused the infection to spread to a larger area but usually still not serious. The treatment involves warm compresses regularly and oral antibiotics if the infection is significant. Also, sometimes there is a persistent lump left when the infection is gone. This occasionally needs to be removed.See 2 more doctor answers

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.

Contact allergy can be responsible and treated with topical ophthalmic anti-inflammatory ointment prescribed from your ophthalmologist.

Uncommonly, infection of the eyelid itself can cause swelling and be treated with oral antibiotics.

Infection or trauma: If your child is otherwise unwell, have them seen. A bug bite should be itchy and resolve in 1-2 days. All the best.
Possibly a stye: Try very warm compresses 2-4 times per day for 10' a time followed by gentle massages to the eye lid may help the backed-up oil gland secretions to drain. Usually this technique resolves the swelling and the stye should resolve within a week. However, if the swelling and pain increases, seek help from an eye md.
Allergies: But have to rule out infection. Use cool compress. Good idea to see a doctor for this.
