swollen eye

Andrew woke up this morning with a swollen lower eyelid with little red bumps on it. Its not severely swollen, but its noticeable. It looks like a stye. Has anyone else had this with their baby? I am wondering if maybe something just go into this eye. Everything I read online says to give it a few days before you take him to the doctor but I am off of work today and then I have to work tomorrow and Friday so If he needs to go I want to take him today.

I haven't experienced this but I hope it goes away quickly. KUP on what the doctor says.

My DD1 gets little styes often... but, normally just one bump in one eye at a time. After a couple of days they go down on their own. Here is my theory... if you have a co-pay for a visit, I wait a day or two. If there is no or little co-pay for insurance and you have the day off, then I would go in.

As the day went on, hsi eye completely cleared up. I am thinking he must of gotten something in it. When I feed him solid food it get all over his hands then he rubs his eyes so that might be it.
