Linda, I too went through the same thing a couple of weeks ago. My eye was sore and swollen and had bumps on the bottom eye lid, that itched and drove me crazy. I also tried the cream the doctor gave me and that made it worse!
On this forum I found Russ at Natural Healing Solutions, he explained to me that what I had was a systemic infection called Sjogren's Disease. Anyway I called him and he sent me some of his Colloidal Silver and msm, told me how to make the solution. I put drops in my eyes several times a day. By within minutes the itching was gone, by the next day the bumps had disappeared and my sore eye was back to normal again.
I am very thankful for this forum and that I found Russ,
