Swollen eyelid

My two year old woke up with a "black" eyelid yesterday morning. I thought she'd bumped it but it continued to swell throughout the day. Her eye is much more swollen today. Her actual eye is not red or goopy, it's just the tissue surrounding it. Should we wait or take her into the Dr.?
