swelling of right upper eyelid
Why did my right upper eyelid swell and remains swollen over a year now? I wore a contact lens in that one eye, and there is a pimple on the outer corner of that same eyelid. The pimple itches occassionally, and the swelling seems to get worst when I am tired and sleepy.

The most likely cause could be a chalazion of the eyelid. Other causes include some type of skin cancer, a chronic infection or skin problem.  You need to see an ophthalmologist to get a careful evaluation.
