Answer

Thanks for your Question

 

 

There are many causes of swollen eyelid and the most common causes are stye,chalazion, allergic conjunctivitis or viral conjunctivitis. Most of the time a combination of antibiotics and steroid eye drops such as tobradex can be very helpful for the treatment of this condition.

I think you require doctor prescription to buy this medication. I would recommend that you visit your eye doctor to be sure about the diagnosis and give you the proper eye drops.
