Swollen lower eyelid

Two nights ago a bruising feeling started in my lower eyelid of my left eye. Then next morning I woke up and there was swelling. I noticed two tiny black specks in the eye the first day it was swollen, and I carefully removed them without any pain.Since then the swelling has gone down a little bit, but it remains painful. The swollen "lump" is in the inside corner. I believe the black specks to have been from the baking soda spray that was used on me at the dentist, the day the problem started. How can I fix this? Thanks!
