What do swelling and itching on the eyelids indicate?

My husband (68 years) has a rash and some swelling on his eyelids for the last few days. It is very itchy. He started taking benedryll (?) yesterday and the swelling went down but not away. Now he is saying he cannot stand the itching. Anything he can do/try or should he just go to urgent care?

I think he can take Benadryl tablets even for some days and he can also take an injection of Dexamethazone. Keep him in observation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
