Eyelid has been swollen for 3 weeks?

I hope someone can help me with this! It started 3 weeks ago, I noticed my right eye was a bit swollen and heavy. It also felt more watery but there's no pain. I've been searching online and is seems like a chalazion but i have no specific bump at ALL. There's just redness all over my eyelid and it's just swollen and heavy-like. It's at its worst in the morning. I've been using warm compression and it does seem to get smaller and more "loose" (less tender) when I have it on my eye. What can it be? I'm pretty worried.. my swollen eye is looking "droopier" than my other eye.

Please and thanks for any advise/thoughts!

Hard to tell from the pictures.  Doesn't look terrible but if its been going on for 3 weeks, you should go see an ophthalmologist who may make a definitive diagnosis and consider treating you for it.
