Exclamation Mascara allergy-swollen eyelids!

I developed an allergic reaction to a new mascara 10 days ago.. my eyelids were swollen, red and itchy. I immediately took benadryl, applied cold compress, tea bags... the swelling has gone down a lot, there's no itching...but my eyelids are still a bit puffy and won't go back to normal, although it's been a while since I've had a reaction. I haven't put on any eye makeup since then. The pharmacist told me (a couple days ago) to wait a few days, but I feel that the swelling should have disappeared by now. Is there something else I should do to get my eyelids back to normal? Any recommendations? Thanks
