How to get rid of a swollen eyelid?

My little sister woke up this morning with a very swollen eye lid on one eye. From what I can tell about her diet and activities the past two days, its not pink eye or an allergic reaction. I put a cold compress on her eye and rinsed it with cold water and I instructed her not to touch or irritate her eye.

I ve asked my parents and they said its just irritated. She has a constant issue with her eyelids, which is itchyness and flakiness. For this, I would apply Cortizone on her eye or another itch cream. However its gone away recently and right now its just smooth and swollen.

I don t know what to do now because its been swollen the entire day and she has school tomorrow. What could it be? What else cpuld help?

    I don't know what it is but both me and my sister have had this happen, honestly I just recommend a HOT compress and some steaming. It worked for me doing it every 2 hours *after school* for 3 days. My sister had it for a week and we took her to the doctor but they didn't do anything about it. So we went with the hot compreses and steam and it went away

    It could be a infection. If get worse, see a eye doctor.
