When I woke up this morning, my right eye was quite swollen and red on the skin of my eyelid rather than in my eye. It was a little crusty as well but I was still able to open my eyes and there hasnt been any discharge or drainage since then. Could this be pink eye or just an allergic reaction?
It is possibly pink eye but without redness of the eye itself, it could be a sensitivity reaction to the eyelid skin or blepharitis (eyelid inflammation). If it is not resolving in a day or so, we should take a look.
