I have sort of an odd question. For the past 2 years or so, my right upper eyelid looks a bit swollen. It isn't tender to the touch or anything, it just looks a tiny bit swollen compared to the left eye.
Now here is where I want to mix it up a bit. My fiance (She's Female, I am Male) has allergies, and she is constantly wiping her eyes and rubbing them. I would say that one of her eyelids is more swollen than the other as well.
She always seems to be wiping the outer sides of the corner of her eyes. What is odd is that I got that exact same wetness in the outer corner of my eyes once or twice recently. This isn't like the inside corner of your eye, instead it is the outer corner and it is very annoying. For me it usually passes in a day. I've only experienced it once or twice, but I see she is constantly wiping her eyes.
I've asked the eye doctor his thoughts and he said my eyelids seem to produce more oil than regular, although it wasn't something I should be worried about. He gave me eyelid scrubs that I tried for a bit, but didn't stick to them.
My Fiance says her doctor says it is her allergies, because she gets allergies quite bad since she still has dogs at her house. I try to explain to her that I will feel that exact same feeling but she takes offense and gets upset when I tell her that I think we should both look into it further in case there is something more to the story.
I know it sounds weird, but I swear it is more than allergies, and that there is something more there than we both think. Is there anything that can make one eyelid be a bit puffier, and also make the outter corner of the eye feel wet. I sometimes feel like she is contagious and giving me some type of bacteria/virus, or some other sickness.
I know this is an odd one, but can anyone share their opinion?
Are there any conditions that specifically make the outter corner's of your eyes water, versus the inner corners? Also, is there any condition that would make only one eyelid stay swollen instead of both for an extended period of time?
