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?

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.

    Im not well yet. I have been keeping very very still today. It seems to be helping a bit. Tomorrow I have a Dr.s apt. with a different Dr. Wish me luck.

    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...
