I got this bruise a few days ago and its on my eyelid its purple now it was black can i speed this healing up?

No

Unfortunately like a bruise anywhere on the body--your own white blood cells etc... have to come in and take the old blood away to get rid of the discoloration and there is no way to really speed this up.

Focal trauma??

Trauma obviously. If occurs spontaneously i would seek evaluation. Also, may need blood studies for clotting & anemia screening along with systemic lab tests if significant problem.

My sons eyelid is a purple and puffy, Is that a shiner?

Sometimes

Bruise
Depends upon the history. Did he get struck around the eye with a fist, a ball or some blunt object so that he has bruising around the eye? Is there swelling? Was the eye struck and is the vision OK? Or did the purple appear with no outside force which could indicate a blood disorder, or tumor? Have your ophthalmologist see your son and sort this out.

What is a good home remedy for a swollen and purple eyelid?

Swollen eyelid

Insect_bite
It depends on the cause of the swelling and discoloration. If it is from trauma (being hit) then ice is the best remedy. If it is from an insect bite or something else then you should see your physician. It could be an infection and should be treated immediately.

What does it mean when the inner part of your eyelids are purple?

Veins?

Open-uri20130312-20109-1jrfe68
Sometimes this can be a prominent vein in your thin lower lid skin or it can come from mild fat herniation thru the orbital septum of the lower lid.This commonly occurs with age but not always. This prominent fat can give " shadows" under certain lighting conditions. Best to have an ophthalmologist check this and he/she may ask for a second opinion from an oculoplastic surgeon.

My eyelids are constantly burning and they have turned dark red/purple, what does this mean?

Allergies

Ophthalmology
Most likely this is related to seasonal allergies. Try some over the counter eye drops, but if you do not feel better in a few days, go see an ophthalmologist

I have felt my eye is bulging for months now. I woke up this morning and eyelid is swollen and feels bruised. What could this be?

Thyroid check!

Bruise
If your eye is bulging it may be your thyroid. See a doc as soon as possible to get it under control and prevent worsening which can become permanent. If the bulges too much the eyelids may not close completely and therefore your eye gets irritated, swollen lids ....
