Swollen Upper Eyelid

I woke up today to find my left upper eyelid swollen. The eye itself is not affected or red. The whole upper eyelid seems red and is tender and painful to touch.It also hurts but just a tiny bit when I blink my eyes. I don't think it's a sty because there isn't any bump. I'm applying a few eye drops and hoping that this will go away the next morning. I hope someone out there can help me with this.

This is the way styes, eyelid infections or irritated eyelid glands start. Use warm compresses for 5 minutes 4-6 times today and try and make an appointment with an Eye MD for tomorrow. If its better you can cancel if not you've got an appointment for a specific diagnosis and treatment.
