I have this strange pain in my upper eye lid of my left eye

Customer Question

I have this strange pain in my upper eye lid of my left eye but in the corner and I'm not too sure why. I have been sick because of the weather change but I'm also pregnant, so I'm worried if its an infection or not
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Is your eyelid swollen at all?
Customer: I just woke up with it this morning, its slightly swollen and only hurts when I blink and when I touch it. I tried looking in my eye to see if maybe I had something in there but nothing and the tear duct looked a bit swollen as well
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No

It could be conjunctivitis. But even if it is, we don't do much about it because it is viral and clears on its own

Do you have a pic?
