What do swelling and itching in the right eye indicate?

So i actually copy and pasted this because im have the same symptoms and she discribed it so well. The last 2-3 days my caruncle of my right eye has been a little bit itchy and kinda burning a little bit. It also feels slightly swollen and kinda looks a little swollen when stretching my under eye lide open and really looking at it. It also looks a little swollen and maybe slightly red compared to my left caruncle. Now my eye itself doesnt appear red or pink or anything. No watery eye or blurred vision. And the itch, swelling feeling, and burning isn t major or anything just a little annoying and concerning. Just curious what it may be? It Also looks like i have some type of blister on the caruncle of my eye. Seems to be clear and tiny bit or discoloration around it,yellow. I cant afford to go to a doctors.
