From the symptoms it does not sound anything serious and can be due to sun tanning and dehydration. Apply cool tea bags, an ice cube wrapped in soft cloth, or cucumber slices to your eyes daily. Apply an eye cream containing vitamin K and retinol. Eat a healthy, balanced diet, take vitamins, and drink plenty of water. Avoid smoking.
Also apply a good sunscreen with spf atleast 30 half an hour before going out in the sun. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

thanks for being so kind and consolent.but another problem has creeped more serious. the eyelid skin of my right eye has sagged and looks droopy sudennly when compared to other, and i don't know the exact reason for this. i took notice of it only today(monday) and it still remains thoughout the day if not worsened.i have assumed of some of the causes:
1)insect bite when i was sleeping, but i couldn't really sense or felt the pain. only when ants bit our eyelids, out eyelids will look bulged but that will last only for few hours.i don't know the exact insect which may of biten.but it can be a possibilty.

2)i used excessive milk in my eyelid region in way of
cleansing my face. does the lactic acid could have created this problem.

3) i used excessive vitamin e cream on the eyelid skin,which might of caused this. but i don't know for sure.

i think these might be one of reason,but could not figure out for sure. please say me whether the condition will heal and return to normal. or some visit to doctor must be done or some surgery needs to be performed.please suggest some remedial measures.
