Swollen Eyelid causes???



Woke up this morning with a swollen eyelid with that annoying paper cut type of pain. More aggravating than anything.

I don't remember hitting my eye on anything nor do I have any allergies nor have I been scratching my eye.

WTF is this?

stye
A stye is caused by bacteria from the skin that get into the oil glands in the eyelids that provide lubrication to the tear film. Styes are similar to common acne pimples that occur elsewhere on the skin. You may have more than one stye at the same time.

Styes usually develop over a few days and may drain and heal on their own. A stye can become a chalazion -- this is when an inflamed oil gland becomes fully blocked. If a chalazion gets large enough, it can cause trouble with your vision.

Probably this. Can you feel a small bump on your eyelid? If so, that cinches the diagnosis. If not, it could just be too small to feel with the swelling. Use warm compresses 3-4 times a day, and go to the drug store and get some lid scrubs (ocusoft makes a good one). Sometimes these can get infected, so if the swelling worsens or you start seeing spreading redness on your lid, go get it checked by an ophthalmologist.

Change your pillow case, hot compress and some anti bacterial cream. It should go down in a day or two, if not go to a doctor

There's really no need to freak out, trust me. I see this stuff everyday. Go with the warm compresses and lid scrubs first. If it gets worse or doesn't resolve after a few days, then go to the ophthalmologist.
