Swollen/Bruised Eyelid

A few weeks ago we noticed that DD's eyelid was swollen and bruised. It's on the upper and outside corner of her eye. Well, it seems to only be getting worse. I'm wondering if maybe it's a clogged gland or something? I have tried putting breastmilk on her eyelid and maybe I will try some warm compresses as well.

I have an appointment to have it checked out next Tuesday, but I was wondering if any of you have experienced this as well? It has persisted for so long it seems.
