What : What you describe sounds like a chalazion or commonly known as a stye. Try placing a warm wash cloth on the lid three or four times daily. If the stye does not go away, there are other treatment options and surgical options you may discuss with your ophthalmologist. Styes can also be associated with lid margin disease. Lid margin disease is a common and frequently chronic inflammation of the eyelids. Symptoms include irritation, itching, and, occasionally, a red eye. This condition frequently occurs in people who tend to have oily skin, dandruff, or dry eyes. Bacteria normally reside on the skin, but in some people, they thrive in the skin at the base of the eyelashes. Nearby oil glands may be overactive, causing dandruff-like scales and particles to form along the lashes and eyelid margins, which can cause redness, stinging, or burning. Lid margin disease cannot be cured, but it can be controlled with a few simple, daily hygienic measures, such as the following: at least twice a day, place a warm, wet washcloth over your closed eyelids for a minute. Rewet it as it cools, two or three times. This will soften and loosen scales and debris. More important, it helps liquefy the oily secretions from the eyelidsâ€™ oil glands, which helps prevent the development of a chalazion, an inflamed lump in an eyelid oil gland. With your finger covered with a thin, wet washcloth, cotton swab, or commercial lint-free pad, gently scrub the base of the lashes for about 15 seconds per lid. When medications are necessary, they may include: artificial tears (over-the-counter eyedrops) to relieve symptoms of dry eye; antibiotics (oral or topical) to decrease bacteria on the eyelids; and steroids (short-term), to decrease inflammation. Medications alone are not sufficient to control lid margin disease; the application of warmth and detailed cleansing of the lashes daily is the key. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Allergies : Allergies cause swollen eyelids. Cold compress can relieve the swelling. Over-the-counter allergy medicine, such as loratidine (claritin) & eyedrops help relieve it. Zaditor (ketotifen) is a good eye drop for itching. If it persists or gets worse go to your doctor. It could also be other problems: infection of the eyelid from blocked sweat ducts on the eyelid margin or if there was injury, an infected lid. ...Read more
Many things!: There are too many possibilities to list here, including viral or bacterial infection, allergy, or autoimmune problems. Signs of a really serious problem include: the vision in that eye is now worse, or you see double when both eyes are open. If you wear contact lenses, take them out. If the swelling improves today, then monitor it yourself. If no improvement, see an ophthalmologist this week. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Possible sty?: A sty (medical term: hordeolum) develops when an oil gland at the edge of an eyelid becomes infected. That could make your cheekbone hurt. Warm compresses for about 10 minutes at time can help. Have it evaluated if it is not improving or getting worse. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
See Dr if persists: Swelling of eye lid(s) on just one side, with no evidence of conjunctivitis, may possibly be due to an insect bite on the eyelid? Another possibility might be an allergic reaction or sensitivity to contact lens cleaner or another chemical. If there's no pain or disturbance of vision or photophobia it's less likely serious, but would suggest being a physician to evaluate your condition. ...Read more
