Puffy eye feels bruised with a soft lump

My right upper eye lid is puffy and feels bruised. When I touch it there is a soft lump but it is not visible from the inside or outside of the lid. I am taking advil for the pain which makes it liveable. Any suggestions as to what it may be?

Hi,Shelby,
Welcome to health care magic family,
You might have some infection in upper eye lid due to some foreign body like dust fallen in eye causing irritation and mild infection.It may be in the form of bruise or ulcer.
In this advil is not enough,you have to take some antibiotic and eye drops locally and hot fomentation.

Hello Doctor, I met with an accident 2.5 months ago. I fell by my face hitting right cheek on the ground. Post that i had little bruising under my eye which has gone by now. But I have soft lump and the skin around it has become very hard and stiff because of which i feel uneasy to smile. (Even if i smile i notice a kind of hole on my upper cheek. I consulted with an Ortho as well as cosmetic surgeon. They both told that this will subside by its own and will take a month more to vanish fully. Please suggest me something.

I fell and hit my head of the pavement, hard, about a month ago. I was bruised quite a bit ... had a serious black eye. Went to the ER and had an MRI. Everything looked good and nothing was broken. I followed the directions for the recoup time. Today where I hit my forehead is feeling bruised again. It is tender to the touch as if I had a bruise there. There is no lump and no discoloration. It appears normal.

Hi, I knocked my head into an open cabinet door. The result was a major lump that felt filled with fluid to the touch. Several days later, (maybe, 4) the lump has decreased slightly, but now I have a black eye that is swollen but doesn t hurt. BTW, I don t feel that I have lost any cognitive skills due to the accident. My question: How long till the purple bruising goes away from my eye socket? Also, since I don t feel the knock in the head has caused me any detriment to my consciousness nor any problem with my ability to think about complex subjects, must I go to the doctor? Or, will this most likely subside?

I am currently on Tramadol for a pain that I haven t been able to get rid of on my own with relaxation and OTC meds such as Tylenol and Advil. Tonight my heart has been palpitating and I want to know if it could be the pain pill or if not is it safe to take the Tramadol?

I have been having a sharp pain in my head for the past month-2 months, and I thought it was maybe because I was dehydrated, but continuing to drink water and stay hydrated didn t help, neither did Tylenol, or Aleve, and Advil Doesn t work for me for anything, so I didn t bother trying that. So do you have any idea what it could be, or what else I could try?
