I develop swollen under my lower eyelids! when i blink it hurts and it's very red inside! i don't think it's a sty cuz there is no pimple there!

Internal sty: There are stys that are external (the pimple is easily seen) and those that are internal (the pimple is not visible, as in your case). I suspect this is the case for your condition. Warm compress the area, gentle massage and see ophthalmologist if symptoms are not improving in a day or two. ...Read more

My lower eyelids swollen, a bit red but hurts and a bump inside the eye   ,its been 4 days.Any advice ?

Stye: If this occurred rather suddenly, it probably is a stye, which is a blocked oil gland of the eyelid. It can become secondarily infected and can spread to adjacent tissues leading to cellulitis. Most of these styes respond to very warm compresses 3-4 times/day for 10' followed by gentle massage with a washcloth containing a small amount of baby shampoo. After a week, the stye should nearly resolve. ...Read more

My eye hurts and there is a swollen bump inside my lower eyelid. What could be the cause?

Stye: At your age, this is probably a stye. This is a blocked gland in the substance of the lid which will produce a red swelling on the inside of the lid. If advanced it may swell the whole lid. To treat, use very warm washcloths socked from your water tap (not too hot). for about 5 minutes at a time, 5 times per day for several days . this will usually get rid of it. ...Read more

Most likely a stye: Most likely it's a chalazion or a stye. They should resolve with warm compresses. If they don't it needs to be drained and at the same time I would. Biopsy it to make sure it's not a malignancy. ...Read more

Chalazion (stye): A distinct nodule with tenderness and redness of the lid is often a stye (chalazion). Warm compresses x 30 minutes 2 x/day often helps. Also, 1/2 cup of rice in a knee high pantyhose that is microwaved for 15 seconds (and testing on the skin to make sure it is not too hot) is useful. Recurrent chalazia or ones that do not respond to heat need to be seen by an ophthalmologist +/- biopsy. ...Read more

Eyes were itching. I rubbed them really hard and five minutes later looked in mirror. My lower eyelids were puffed up huge and swollen.

Stop rubbing: If eyes itch there are some good anti itch over the counter drops for thei -zaditor.. Every time you itch it releases more of the substance that causes the eyes to itch- the cycle of allergies. No rubbing or itching will help. ...Read more
