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: 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.

Does crying too much cause puffier eyes permanently? I noticed that every time I cry, my eyes gets a bit more puffier even after the swelling go down.

"Too much" means...: "Too much" means different amounts to different people. It would be really hard to cry often enough to permanently change the thickness or puffiness of one's eyelids. Of course, if a person were upset enough to be "crying all the time" she may have a psychological illness such as depression or anxiety, which would alter her facial expressions and appearance, because expressions come from within.
