Itchy Swollen Eyelid One Eye Only
I'm currently experiencing itchy red pain and swollen on both eyes. On eye is hurting one that the other. What could cause this?
Red itchy eyes: Red itchy eyes are due to allergies, infection or a foreign body in the eye (like hair), contact lens may also cause this
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.See 2 more doctor answers
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.
Allergic reaction itchy arms and hands, one eye swollen now better, then my skin became very dry what's the causes I went on vacation & was swimin tan?
Itchy rash: I am more worried about your swollen eye than anything else, you need to seek immediate medical help as this reaction may progress. You may have reacted to a topical lotion you applied or it could be unrelated.
Eyedrops: Check to see if you are using a new skin product, as this can cause a reaction like this. If this has just popped up spontaneously, you can try using artificial tears 4x/day in both eyes. If that doesn't work, there is a OTC drop: 'Zatidor', which works well. You can also use Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) but this will cause drowsiness. If these therapies do not work, consider seeing an eye doctor.
Around my eyelids started to get itchy the rest of my face got tiny bumps then my eyes are swollen?
Allergic reaction: It appears your face has come in contact with something your allergic to or you have eaten something you are allergic to. You should think about what touched your face or what you have eaten. Being in direct sunlight can cause a reaction like you have. If you do not have Glaucoma, you could consider taking a Benadryl (diphenhydramine) caplet and Zantac to help alliviate your problem. See MD as soon as possible.
Spent all day crying yestrdy. I woke up today with my lower eyelids puffy swollen and crusty, and a little itchy. Can excess crying cause pink eye?
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.

I woke up to a swollen upper eyelid on just left eye. No itchiness, no pain, no crusts or discharge. Makes eye smaller. What do I do and what is it?
Swollen eyelid: Put a hot compress on it several times a day. If it gets worse or does not get better after a few days, then go see your eye MD.
Swelling: Swelling of the lids can be caused by several things. You need to see an ophthalmologist to determine the cause and institute treatment.

So my under eyelid is red and swollen, and it's a little itchy, I don't have insurance so I can't go see a doctor I think it's pink eye what can I do?
Hot compresses: Most of the time pink eye causes the eyeball to be red. If this only involves the eyelid, it is either a stye or a mild skin infection. It is more likely a stye if there is a sore spot on the lid. If so, use hot compresses at least 3 times per day. Keep reheating the washcloth so you get 5-10 minutes of heat every time.See 1 more doctor answer
The edge of my upper eyelid is a bid swollen. I don't know if it is because of my allergies or a blocked oil gland. My eye Is itchy and sometimes hurt?
Hordeolum: A stye (hordeolum)occurs rather suddenly (MayB from rub). It is a blocked oil gland (s) of the eyelid. It can become secondarily infected and can spread to adjacent tissues leading to cellulitis. Most of these styes respond to very warm compresses 3-4 times/day for 10' followed by gentle massage with a washcloth containing a small amount of baby shampoo. After a week, the stye should nearly resolve.
I got a mosquito bite on my upper eyelid over night and my eye is swollen, stinging, itchy and sore. I've put a cold cloth on it but it hasn't helped.
See answer: Swelling of an eyelid from a mosquito bite isn't unusual and suggest an allergic type reaction. It should respond to an antihistamine such as Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or Zyrtec. If the condition gets worse check with a physician to be sure no infection is presentSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi I had swollen itchy eye lids 2 weeks ago now my eyes and around my nose feels so dry and itchy. What could this be? Thank you
Allergies...: Allergic rhinitis presents with a variety of symptoms including congestion, running, itching (eyes and nose), and post-nasal drip that can be seasonal or year round. Triggers can be allergic (animal dander, pollen, dust mites) or non-allergic (strong scents/odors, cleaning products, weather changes). See an Allergist for further workup and evaluation.See 1 more doctor answer
