In brief: Cool compresses

First, remove the offending product, then start with some Benadryl (diphenhydramine) orally and then use cool compresses 15-30 minutes 4 times daily to soothe the area.
You can also safely apply some 1% Hydrocortisone cream from the pharmacy carefully to the skin around the eye.
