I banged my head by accident yesterday, with my glasses on, at my left eyebrow. There's no bump or bruise there, in fact, the spot is barely tender. However, I was surprised to notice a faint black blotch across my left eyelid. I swear, it looks like a smudge of mascara! I guess it's obvious to assume it's from the incident, but is this weird? Thanks in advance!

P.S. I was actually trying to get to the bathroom when I banged my head. I'm recovering from either food poisoning or stomach flu...it's only lasted a day, so maybe it's food poisoning?

From what you have described it seems like hematoma(blood collection) within your eyelid.It should disappear in a few days.
