So, as of yesterday, my lower right eyelid has become slightly swollen and is very painful to the touch. Its not my entire eyelid however, about half of it is affected. It also hurts to close my eye or blink in general. I do not wear contacts or have glasses- my vision is fine. There appears to be no discharge at all aside from the normal nightly stuff that I wake up with, but I still fear it could be some form of an infection.

Yesterday both my eye lids were swollen and painful. Nothing seems to help the pain, eye drops, ice, hot compress, nothing. Today my left eye is fine but my right eye hurts so bad. Every time I blink the pain shoots from eye. It looks a little swollen, but doesn't look too bad. My eye isn't pink and it doesn't look like anything is in my eye. I haven't worn my contacts since the pain started. What is happening?

2 evenings ago, my eye kind of hurt when I'd blink, felt like I had a bruise (hurts to blink and to touch). The following morning, my lower eye lid was swollen to part of my nose on that side. Minor discomfort with a little to no itching, still feels like a bruise. There was no irratition of the eye itself, totally clear. Inside the lower eyelid there is no color change at all.
I woke up the next day and the bottom of my eye was swollen a little and it hurts to blink even more and even keep open.And when you look on my bottom eyelid inside in the corner near my nose, there is a very red spot. What is it? What should I do?
This morning I woke up, and the entire bag under my eye is really puffy and swollen, and looks terrible. It hurts when I blink, not a sharp pain, but a swollen, bruised pain. Anybody have any thoughts on what the problem is, and what I can do to fix it? It could be I have had more stress lately. I have to speak in front of a lot of people tomorrow. Maybe I should wear an eyepatch.
My eyes are clear (no discharge) but the area around the left eye hurts a bit when I blink. I have a blister on my inside lower lip for a couple of days (not sure if it is related). Is there anything I can do to cure this or if I can get anything from the pharmacy or is this something more serious that I have to see a doctor (if yes, will a general doctor help or a specialist eye doctor)? Many thanks.
Likely a stye since its red and painful. Use the search and archives to read about. Use warm compresses.
If the swelling and pain persist you should see an Eye MD. I would advise you not to go to an Urgent Care center or an Emergency Room. This will only lead to extra expense as you will likely be referred to an eye care provider anyway. Since it's Friday afternoon (at least in the US), if you receive this reply I suggest you start calling now before offices close.

I have booked an appt. with my eye doctor to get a referral to a Ophthamologist.....I am going to take this route.....I cannot remember if the immunity test that I had this summer would show anything to do with arthritis.

She shined the light in it once and said, "What you have is called blepharitis (sp).
I woke up today to find my left upper eyelid swollen. The eye itself is not affected or red. The whole upper eyelid seems red and is tender and painful to touch.It also hurts but just a tiny bit when I blink my eyes. I don't think it's a sty because there isn't any bump.

There is no visible/distinct LUMP that I can see, but I'm starting to wonder if I have a stye UNDER my eye...on my inner eyelid.

As the day went by, it started hurting when I blinked and today it is a little more swollen than yesterday, but not too swollen. It hurts when I blink and the top corner of my eye is tender to touch. There seems to be no signs of anything resembling a stye. I applied some ice last night to see if the swelling would go down, but it doesn't seem like it will. Other than the swelling, my eye is not red and there is no discomfort besides when I blink. Could this be an injury?
