You had not mentioned the duration of the problem.

Do you have dark circles too?
Do you have running nose?
Do you work infront of computer for longer hours >8 hours a day?
Do you notice such swelling around eye frequently?

With the information given the immediate suspicion is an allergic reaction. You can put ice pack or ice wrapped in a cloth on the eyes for 5 minutes three times a day. This will help cosmetic improvement. Did you try with an over the counter anti allergic like Claritin? If not you can try for three days, twice a day after meal.

If you do not wish try at home, you can first see a local primary care doctor/ GP. If not helpful after two visits you can visit a Eye specialist as well.

Hope this helps.

I do have dark circles.
I do have swelling frequently
I do work in front of a computer daily.
Ive used claritin, benedryl, zyrtec daily

I do use the warm clothes. I dont know what else to do. It is very irritating and embarassing at the same time.

Your saying to see a regular doctor first?

The assumption is changed now.

You should see an Ophthalmologist. I am not sure if you need a referral from GP first. You can call the Ophthalmologist office and enquire if they see only referral cases.

They need to examine the muscles around the eye. Opthalmologist will test for infection, cellulitis and hidden cysts as well. Also need to check vision, thyroid disorder, anemia, kidney function, Xray of the orbit as well. Please note that this can be treated if you follow up regularly with the doctor. First visit may not be fruitful all the time.

Let me help you with more ideas after you first visit to the doctor.
