Brief Answer:
Likely to be a chalazion.

Detailed Answer:
My dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.
Though I would be happier to see a photograph of the eye,in the meanwhile likelihood of a chalazion is string if the swelling is localized to a small area of lid margin.
Do continue with ointment and hot fomentation twice a day to asses if the swelling resolves an a couple of days.
Get back to me, preferably with photograph in case of any further query in this regard.
