Why does my lower eyelid hurt when I blink??

When I woke up yesterday morning I noticed that everytime I blinked my lower eyelid felt sore on my left eye. It feels as though there's a bruise there but on the inside. Today it feels a little worse. The inside of the eyelid looks a little red but nothing major. What is this?

I just had the same thing I let it go for a week thinking it would heal on its own but it got worse it hurt when I blinked and it was on my lower lid it got so bad that it looked like someone punched me in the eye it started to bruise what u have to do is do hot compression 10 to 15 times a day for 15 min everytime keeping the rag warm everytime and push up and go to the eye doctors asap they will put u on antibiotics a cream for your eye for 7 days it's a bacterial infection caused by dust touching money bad contacts which was my case touching a door knob etc. Always keep your hands clean and don't touch it then touch someone else it is contagious

When in doubt, go to you're eye doctor.

Same with my eye. I did some research on it. It said that it could be a result from a lack of sleep. Or, it could be because of allergies. Also, it could just be a stye.

try sleeping overnight and if it feels better maybe you just needed to rest your eyes but if it does not work consult a doctor andi have one too my father told me maybe its because of staying awake all night

Hey! I have had this before actully I have one right now! This is called a stye. My mom has helped me out with this before, so first get a rag with hot water and put it on your eye for a bit. After a while start getting your cold rag and once you're ready put the cold rag directly on your eye. Hope this helps! Helps me:)))
