Hello, Thank you for the question.I am Dr.A.S.Desai and I look forward to assisting you .
Are you available for chat now?
2 weeks is a long time for any external lid injury to have persisted. I guess it is better to get your eye examined in detail again as the cause of the tender lump under the upper lid needs to be looked for. A retained foreign body which could be a tiny chip o the plastic too, is one of the possibilities. The other possibility is that of a stye which could have incidently occured at the same time.
To reduce the pain until you meet an ophthalmologist, you can take tablet Acetaminophen, 500 mg , 1 tablet twice a day. However this should not be taken for more tahn 2 to 3 days as it could mask some of the important signs. You can apply warm compresses , 10 minutes each time, twice a day.
