In brief: Sty, blepharitis

Your upper eyelid swelling may be due to inflammation of the eyelid marginal oil glands and skin at the base of the eyelashes.
Any reddish pimple-like swelling could also be a sty, a localized infection of an oil gland. Try moderately hot moist compresses 2 to 4 times/day and apply for 10', followed by cleaning the eyelid lashes with SteriLid eye pad link: https://youtu.be/eIruHhmm31Y
