Hello
It seems from the history that your son is having swollen eyelid.
This us because of inflammatory condition of the glands of the eyelids.
The treatment is by use of antibiotic eye drops, antiinflammatory drugs.
Applying hot compression provides symptomatic relief.
Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for examination and treatment accordingly.

Thank you
