Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am board certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. I'm sorry to hear that you have eye pain. It sounds like you scratched the inside of the eyelid. The best thing to heal it and reduce any pain and swelling is to go to an Urgent Care Center for a prescription for antibiotic ointment with a steroid. There is no over the counter treatment that I would suggest.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
