    Well, from what you said, I can see you are worried about your eyes. Actually, swollen eyelids cannot exactly identify what sort of problem you have, but according to my experience, you might have got stye because that is a primary symptom of stye, and pink eyes show no signs of swollen eyes. Better yet, you might as well try to consult a doctor and take some medical treatment before it is too late. Also, try not to rub your eyes and get some healthy and plain foods before you are recovered.
