Chances are that these are meiboman gland tumors that are benign. There's little that can be done at home aside from monitoring, however these tumors do tend to grow slowly. The largest risk comes if they begin rubbing the eye. In some cases, the vet will want to anesthetize the pet and remove them. Sometimes they're small enough to be removed with just a local anesthetic into the eyelid and remove the pet while they're awake. The smaller the better, otherwise the pet may not be able to receive this service while they're awake.Most of these are benign and don't require any major treatment. Regardless, they remain unsightly if not removed and can keep growing so removal when smaller is most ideal but treatment at any size if bothering the eye itself.

Unfortunately, without a detailed picture I can't tell if that's due to the wart or due to allergies. I can give you some instructions to try at home to see if this may be allergic reaction-related. However, if you don't see an improvement within a few hours, he's going to need to be examined. It's possible this has become large enough to cause irritation in the eye and swelling.The allergy treatment is 1-2mg/pound of body weight of benadryl by mouth every 8-12 hours as needed.
