Eyelids itched like crazy, head felt like it would explode. Scratched eyes, they puffed. Took 50mg benadryl, (diphenhydramine) it helped. What causes this?

In brief: Allergies

There are some good over the counter drops you could use initially- zaditor, (ketotifen) alloway.
This will take care of the itching and may limit the swelling.
