Nevertheless, If it affect the retina and become worse, it is recommended that you should go to see a professional oculist eye doctor to check the detailed situation for the sake of your eyes.

    Yes, this is normal. The immune system of your body sometimes is hyper sensitive to some normally harmless substance, resulting in allergy. In other words, your white cells wrongly recognize allergen as harmful substance and defend you by reactions like redness, eczema, runny nose, asthma and so on. You are not supposed to get all these symptoms at the same time, but you must experience some of them. Swollen eyelids are the symptom of eczema resulting from overreaction of your skin white cells.
