Eye is swollen, and hurts to blink.

Within the past two days my eye has became swollen and it hurts to blink. The pain happens within the right corner of my right eye, I've tried normal red eye, eye drops because I thought it was just something stuck in my eye, but that didn't help, I then also put a warm wash cloth on my eye, It helped it for a few minutes but then the pain came back. What else could I try? Should I go see a doctor?

Hi Anonymous,

This is not a common occurance so I would certainly say you should contact your physician. My first thought reading this is that you may have a stye which are very painful and uncomfortable. Do yourself a favor and have it checked out. Good luck.
