My bottom eye lid is swollen and it hurts what is it?

Stye

Head-eye
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. If the infection starts to spread beyond the eyelid, then contact your ophthalmologist. Occasionally, oral antibiotics are prescribed to help with this.

sore throat and swollen bottom eye lid after oral? Kinda paranoid?

Oral??

Paranoia
If you mean Oral Sex, and your question is are you being paranoid, then answer is no. Anyone should be concerned having any symptoms after unprotected ...oral. Having said that, chances of you contracting a disease is prob low, depending on your partner (if he (she?) has multiple partners, and is a drug addict, chances are higher). Bottom line: I'd get it checked out with your PCP.

3 yr old had a fever in the middle of the night that broke by morning. But she woke up with her bottom eye lid swollen. Eye looks normal. Ideas?

See a doctor

Women
It could be a variety of things- she could have had an insect bite or sting to the eyelid causing swelling, she could have an infection (the fever makes that possible as well), or she may be having some allergy problems. See your doctor to find out if treatment is needed.

What does sore, swollen and red eye mean? My left bottom eye lid has been hurting for a few days now, feels kind of like a pimple to the touch and when I blink. I woke up this morning and my eye was swollen on the bottom lid and under my eye, red and sti

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 eyelids’ 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.

Eye strain, swollen lid, black spot on eyelid. What could it be?

Anything!

Eye
Difficult to diagnose with just a handful of words over the Internet. That being said, eyes are critical organs; I would definitely seek immediate medical evaluation.

I have eye lid/lash pain around the eye lash area. my eyelids are swollen every day?

Blepharitis

Baby
This is likely due to blepharitis, a non specific inflammation and overinfection of the eyelash margin. Try cleaning you eyelashes and lids with baby shampoo and warm water. If it persists, follow up with eye doctor for definitive diagnosis.
