Cold compresses. It's not likely to damage the eye at all.

I woke up today with a mosquito bite on my eyelid. Should I be rinsing it with water around 5 times a day or just use cold compresses? Also how long will it take till it is gone?

just cold compresses. Usually 2-3 days

My husband got stung by a tiny mosquito inside the eye 2 days ago.  He said it felt like getting pepper in your eyes.  It's red and it hurts him.  He's using eyedrops but that just takes the redness away but not the pain.

If no better today see an ophthalmologist, may need short courseof steroid drops.
