Swollen eye after eating lobster and crabs. Took benadryl. When will it get healed?

Hi, I just ate some lobster and crab legs at a restaurant and absent-mindedly touch my finger to my eye and now my eye is very swollen on the white part. when I blink or close my eye it feels almost like a blister is on my eye and is watering profusely. I took some Benadryl and used some regular eye drops. how long will it be like this?
