for the past week my right eyelid has been swollen which appeared to may have been a bug bite on my eyelid. i left it alone thinking it was a bug bite until the next day it got worse. i had applied ice on my eyelid for about 20 mins. and went to bed. the next day it got better until now the swelling has gone down but there is a lump visible on my eyelid that seems to be underneath it. i can feel it and move it around. it is as small as a pellet. is this serious? should i go see a doctor? or wait until it goes away? someone please help :(

It can be either a stye or a cyst. Use warm compresseses several times a day to help bring it to a head if it's a stye or to reduce it if it's a cyst. If nothing happens and it remains the same size for a week or two after the warm compresses then yes, you should see a doctor about it.

I agree with what Sherry said, apply warm compressess and if you develop a fever go to the eye doctor
