    Swollen eyelid for a week, help?
    BipolarDisorder2 posted:
    I woke up last Monday morning with my R upper eyelid swollen. Throughout the day it got better, and has gotten progresively better, but hasn't quit being swollen entirely. It's usually at it's worst in the morning, right when I wake up (which is about 80% better than before), buuut it's still a tad swollen throughout the day. It's not infected and it doesn't hurt or itch, but it's getting ANNOYING!

    Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

    bpcookie responded:
    my guess would be that you have a clogged eye duct or even a clogged eye lash hole thingy (what ever they call it). Wash your eye lid real good with warm water twice a day. Then put a warm wash cloth over it before you go to bed at night. See if that helps. :)
    When all else fails, go Bipolar all over their azzes!!

    Thanks, babydoll ;p I think it's more than just a weird thing...IDK though. I have a stye now on my lower lid (which I always treat w/ a warm washcloth. They go away in 24 hours, no big deal) and my upper is doing better, still no oidea what's causing it...
