Itchy,swollen eyelid

Hello everyone. I had something happen today and I was wondering if you think this is an allergy or not?? Out of the blue my eyelid on my right eye started getting very itchy(only the part that actually touches your eyeball). This lasted for about 10 minutes. After that the itching dramatically subsided and I noticed that the eyelid was slightly swollen (again, just the part that touches the eyeball). This was 5 hours ago and the swelling now looks like it's almost gone. Is this an allergy?? Any thoughts on what else this could be? Just to let you know, it had been 3 hours since I had eaten when this all started, so does that rule out a food allergy?? Any input/ thoughts would be helpful...... I'm a worry wart and not knowing what this is is driving me crazy!!
