Lower eyelid is swollen?

A couple months ago, my lower eyelid became really inflamed, all the way across. I wasn't sure why, so I tried not to touch it and wiped it with a cool, damp paper towel. After about 2 hours the swelling began to go down, and by morning, it was fine. Since then it has happened a few more times, with this morning being the 4th. It has only been my left eye every time. I'm not sure if there is something that could cause this or whether I should go to the dr.

To answer some questions:
  • I have seasonal allergies, but take allegra.
  • The only other known allergy I have is spider bites, but haven't had a problem since I was 5.
  • I don't wear contacts.
  • It doesn't hurt or itch.

    Apparently i can't post links, but I have a picture of it. If you message me, I will send the link.

Re: Lower eyelid is swollen?

I would go to an eye doctor and have it checked. You could have something in there that is irritating too. Have you tried the OTC eye drops for moisture? It could flush it out if there is something in it.
