My eyelid is swollen!
Yesterday afternoon my eyelid was a bit itchy. Thinking nothing of it I just scratched it. A couple hours later it swelled up to the point where my crease is gone. My eyelid has now just become this deformed looking thing. I put ice and tea bags on it to no avail. I thought it would go back to normal once after I went to bed but it's still the same. I even missed school! What can I do to bring the swelling down? And does anyone know what the cause of this is? I can't go to the doctors right now. I'm going to drink allergy medecine and hope it goes down.

If it is unrelated to your allergies, it is likely the start of a sty.  Try using warm compresses for a few minutes several a times per day for a few days.  If you don't see improvement, please see an ophthalmologist.
