Swelling of eyelids, used eyedrops, hurts to touch

I woke uo yesrerday, and my bottom eyelid close to my nose on my right started to swell . It went away as the day progressed, and I woke up this morning and it was twice as bad. I don t know what it is. I don t have contacts, and eye is clean of alian objects. Used eyedrops and it s not going away. Was told it could be a stye, but there is nothing in my eye at all that would resemble a zit. Was told it could be blephitis and I don t have accumulation of dry skin around my eyelashes, and my eye is not affected in any way. Just the bottom is gradually getting bigger and more swollen and hurts to the touch.

It seems from the history that you are having inflammatory swelling of the eyelid like stye.
It can occur even when the eye is clean like as you have told in your case.
Blepharitis will not cause pain and swelling like stye, hence it is not likely to be stye.
The treatment is by antibiotic and analgesic drugs ans antibiotic eye drops.
Releif from symptoms can be obtained by hot compress.
Thank you
