In brief: Be seen

Multiple potential causes from problems locally like conjunctivitis to more systemic conditions like allergies and things.
A good medical checkup might be a good place to start, an opthamologist may need to be involved.

In brief: Allergies

By your symptoms, your eyes are reacting to some kind of allergen(s) that produces an allergic response of itching, swelling, watering, and mild irritation.
Often reflex eyelid rubbing creates more swelling and irritation. I advise cool compresses to eyelids to reduce swelling. Antihistamine eye drops like Zaditor™, can reduce itching of eyeballs and perhaps somewhat helpful are Ocusoft™ lid wipe
