Hi, I m a 14-year-old female from Fl. I have this swelling on my right eye lid and I have no idea what it is. It first started from the corner of my eye, but gradually it became worse. It isn t badly inflamated (just my top eye lid) and there isn t any itching. I dunno whether it s a sty or an insect bite. There s no boil to indicate that it could be a sty but my eye lid does hurt. How do I cure this or at least reduce the pain and swelling? Help please!
