In brief: Swollen/red eye

My big question is if it's just one eye or both? If just one eye, I'm much more concerned about an infection - whether a stye developing, a bug bite that is getting infected or reaction, or an infection called periorbital cellulitis, which can be very serious.
If both eyes more likely allergy source. Cool compress area, try a dose of Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) but if ill in ANY WAY or FEVER, go to ER today.

In brief: Chalazon

Lois, It is probably a chalazon (like a pimple under the eyelid).
These are treated with warm compresses 4-5 times a day. If it doesn't resolve, please take him to his doctor. Hope this helps!

In brief: Allergy/irritation

I would suggest a pediatric exam. Without a photo you may want to ask your peditrician about pediatric antihistamine.
