My Bottom Eye Lid Is Swollen
Stye: You most likely have a stye. This is a localized infection of the eyelid skin. This will typically respond to warm compresses several times per day for a few days.

My bottom eye lid is swollen. No redness only slight discomfort. Should I be concerned? I use ointment in my bottom eyelid at night for dry eye.
Possible concern: Dry eye is common, can respond well to ointment but does not cause eyelid swelling. Is the tenderness at one spot or diffuse? Is there a palpable nodule? Is this short term or has it been there awhile? Try using very warm washcloths 4-5 times a day on the lid and if it disappears, it was likely a stye. If still present after 4-5 days, have an ophthalmologist look at it. ...Read more

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 more
