My husbands eye is extremely swollen and the whole eye lid (top) is beat red. Should I take him to the doctor?

Yes. These are very severe signs. Please see an md asap for an evaluation and treatment. Good luck.
Yes, today. It sounds like he has some sort of infection, most likely involving at least the skin and perhaps deeper. He needs to been seen by a doctor today, not tomorrow. Infections around the eye can be very serious, and early treatment is essential to prevent complications.
Red eye. Agreed. He may have a viral (herpetic) infection of the eye coupled with orbital cellulitis. Both conditions are alarm symptoms and your husband should be seen immediately.
