Brief Answer:
Allergy

Detailed Answer:
My dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.
Painless swelling is more likely to be allergic in nature, as infection will have pain. With benadryl, you can use any anti allergy drops,which will give quicker recovery. Wash eyes with plain water and be on the lookout for thick discharge or any pain in the morning,which will mean antibiotics have to be started.

If developing any other symptoms,do get back to me immediately.
