Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you and the lesions. These may be herpes eruptions, like cold sores, and could heal on their own. You may watch and wait. If you get more than the two lesions you have, it would be prudent to see a doctor.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Two weeks ago I had swelling of the eyelid. It went away 2-3 days later. Now the corner of my eye Keeps scabbing after each time Washing my face. Why!

They will view it under a slit lamp microscopy and diagnose it properly for treatment. ...Read more

Go to an eye doctor: Get it checked out if you have not already done so. S/he will look under the slit lamp microscopy and determine what is going on.

I was scratching at sore on my face and scab fell in my eye do I need to flush it out? Will it be okay??

Yes: If the scab is still in your eye, then yes, you need to flush it out - ideally with saline solution if you have some available.
