In brief: Allergies

Allergies cause swollen eyelids.
Cold compress can relieve the swelling. Over-the-counter allergy medicine, such as loratidine (claritin) ; eyedrops help relieve it. Zaditor (ketotifen) is a good eye drop for itching. If it persists or gets worse go to your doctor. It could also be other problems.
