Ophthalmologist: This may be the result of a blockage in a gland duct of the eyelid. It's best to have an ophthalmologist evaluate and treat you. In the meantime apply warm soaks until you're examined.

Possibly sty: You may have a sty or blocked oil gland of the eyelash (gland of zeiss) that is secondarily inflamed or infected. Try mod. Hot compresses 2-4 times/day for about 10' followed by gentle massage with diluted baby shampoo on a clean washcloth. This should help it resolve in about 7-10 days. If not and persistent or worsening, then an exam is needed to verify the lid lesion.

I woke up this morning with one eye swollen and itchy. Do you think something bit me?

A bite or particle: Sudden itching and swelling of one eye is almost always caused by contact with an irritant or allergen. If you see evidence of a bite on the skin, or a particle or insect inside your eye, then you know the cause, but more often than not we cannot figure out the cause. A cool or ice compress should help. Allergens include plant or animal particles on the hands, or even new laundry soap.

What could be wrong with my eye? It's swollen and real itchy but only in one eye

A few possibilities: This could be due to allergies, dry eyes, or eye infections. All can start or affect 1 eye first. The treatments are very different. For allergies, zaditor (ketotifen) is a good otc eye medicine. For dry eyes, lubricating tears are necessary. For infection, usually of the eyelids, start with eyelid warm compress and diluted baby shampoo scrubs. You should have a baseline exam with your eye doctor.

Allergies in the eye: It sounds like you're suffering from allergies in the eye with your symptoms of itching, redness and bumps on the lid. You can try using over-the-counter Zaditor, (ketotifen) artificial tears and cold compresses. If this does not improve then you should see an eye care provider. Also if you do suffer from allergies treating them systemically can help to. Good luck!

For the past 3 days I have noticed under my eyes it was swollen and itchy. At times it would even get flaky. Is it an allergic reaction?

Possibly yes: It could be eczema. It is hard to diagnose it without looking at it but eczema is a skin rash that is dry, red, flakey and itchy. It responds to steroid creams but use steroids on the face cautiously as it may cause side effects like thinning the skin and color change.

I was preparing a lot of different foods for a big party at my house & my face starting getting itchy & blotchy. One of my eyes is swollen & runny.

Allergy: With so many different foods it may be difficult to determine the culprit but the blotchy and itchy rash along with swelling suggests an allergic type reaction. Try to make a list of things you were incontact with while it is still fresh and then go for allergy testing. Continue the Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and get help if it gets worse this can be life threatening.

See your eye doctor.: Best to see your eye doctor to determine the cause. It could be from an insect bite, or allergic or infectious. The treatment would be determined by the cause. Generally cold or hot compresses depending on the cause, anti-allergic drops and possibly oral anti-allergic medication (antihistamine) for an allergy or insect bite, antibiotic drops without oral antibiotics for an infection.

Itchy eyes and next day swollen and itchiness continues. What could it be?

EYES: Allergic conjunctivitis or infectious conjunctivitis. I would suspect the first one. You could try over the counter Patanol (olopatadine) which is used to treat allergic conjunctivitis. Consider getting rid of down pillows. Cat and dog dander can often be the cause. Wash your sheets weekly.
