Hi There The bottom of one of my eyelids was a little red and itchy and now the area is swollen incuding the whole eye bang. It looks like someone hit me in the eye, but there is no redness in the eye itself. What do I do please?

THE DESCRIPTION fits with either allergic or infective conjunctivitis.
It is better to see a eye specialist for advice.
He will examine the eye in detail and advice accordingly.
Till then, u can use antibiotic drops if u have one already at home.
If appointment is delayed, itis better to attend emergency.
Hope this helps. Kindly dont hesitate to wite back for dooubts if any.
