Hi,

Welcome to just answer.

There are a few possibilities in your case -

- there might be a foreign body in your eye which might be causing the irritation and swelling in the eye

- allergy - itching can be due to seasonal allergy which again can cause swelling in the white portion of the eye (conjunctiva)

- Other possibilities like cyst or ptregyum in the white portion of the eye.

I would advise you to use lubricating and anti-allergy eye drops that are available over the counter.

Lubricating eye drops like refresh tears/optive/systane eye drops 3-5 times a day

Anti-allergy eye drops like visin-A 2-3 times a day

If there is no improvement or worsening, then you need to consult an eye specialist for a need to rule out a foreign body.

Hop[e this information is helpful

Regards
