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

Open-uri20140321-410-7ef5xq
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.

Woke up with upper right eyelid swollen, but eye is not red, painful, or itchy. No bumps. I didn't eat anything different.

Many causes!

Ophthalmology
It could be fluid retention if you sleep on that side, it could be mosquito bite, rubbing of eyes.... Try some cool compress on it. If it persists and recurs, consult a local ophthalmologist.

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

Pink_eye
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.

How do I treat red, swollen, itchy eye?

See a doctor!

Ophthalmology
Without an examination there is no easy way to determine what is causing your red, swollen, itchy eye and therefore we can't know how to treat it. Make an appointment with your local ophthalmologist to get this issue resolved.

Dr. Jodi I. Luchs answered:

Are there autoimmune disorders that causes red, swollen, inflamed and itchy eyelids and a rash?

Atopic Dermatitis

Skin_rash
Atopic dermatitis, an immune/allergic disorder, can produce eczema on the skin, as well as red swollen itchy eyelids, and a rash. However, a simple contact allergy, unrelated to an immune disorder can produce similar findings. See your Ophthalmologist and perhaps an allergist as well to look into it.

I'm worried because my contacts are making my eye itchy, red, and swollen!, what do you suggest?

Discontinue

Head-eye
Discontinue the contacts and follow up with your eye care specialist. Sounds if you are having and allergic reaction. Most likely to the solution or drops you are using with the contacts.
