Swelling above the eye-lid

Help! the part right above the ridge of my eyelashes on my left eye is swollen, i have checked and I dont have symptoms for a stye or a challaide, but, it really hurts to blink, and it isnt a bump, its just swollen all along the ridgeline before my eyelashes. Im not sure how i got it, I dont have any allergies, I was just sleeping on the couch a few days ago, woke up and it started hurting. I went to see a doctor, but they prescribed this type of polysporin to rub on it with a warm towel? Ive been doing that for about 2 days now and nothings changed, the pain is still there. Please tell me what to do and what this could possibly be, im really scared and it hurts alot
