My eyes were fine, then I started scratching my right eyelid with my fingernail because it was itchy... A few swollen bumps started appearing almost instantly on my skin of the eyelid and started growing bigger... Then after several hours my whole eyelid (from the eyebrow to my eye) became swollen and puffy and red--like twice the size of my other eyelid... I've washed it twice since then and the swelling hasn't gone down... My eye itself seems to be fine, it's just the eyelid... Any idea why this is happening?... Thanks
