Hello,

Dr Chaithanya attending you today

Black eye lid can be due to inflammation, allergy or due to injury.

Now, in your case I guess flu is causing the symptoms.

However, you need to go to an Ophthalmologist, who can examine you and prescribe mild steroid drops if there is inflammation or antibiotic drops if there is infection or artificial tear drops if it is just a dryness.

Please feel free to ask if any further questions. If done for now, please leave a positive rating
