Common Questions and Answers about Eyes swollen from allergic reaction

swollen

Hello, I started getting swellen eyes about two years ago. One eye or the other would swell up like a ballon to the point I could hardly see out of it. It turned out to be a couple of things. One being the new dryer sheets that I had dried my sheets with. The swelling would start during the night while I was curled up in the sheets. I think it would happen if a tear or wet hands after returning from the bathroom would touch my eye area. I don't know if this is your problem but don't rule it out.
Yesterday during an exercise class perspired so profusely that all of my makeup literally melted and ran into my eyes. By the time I was out of class, my eyes were almost swollen shut and fire-engine red. They have been weeping nonstop since then. I've used Alaway and it has calmed the itching, but they are still extremely red and swollen. Should I just allow time for them to calm down on their own, or is there something more I can do? Thank you!
however, two days into using these products, my eyes and cheeks have swollen up, i've been sent home from work and my entire face is in agony. It feels like it's been burned and all the pores are stretched painfully over the swelling. i have NEVER had an allergic reaction to a skin product before. it hurts an unbelievable amount. I've taken a zirtek and put some anthisan on the swelling but it still hurts a lot. Is this something that will calm down itself or should I see a dermatologist?
Yesterday evening my 13 year old daughter was playing outside and after exploring under a big tree she came in and within just a few minutes both eyes were severely swollen. I quickly ran to the pharmacy and the pharmacist recommended benedryl. It was about 8:30pm. She took 2 tsp and went to bed. She woke up around 12am and took another 2 tsp. She woke up around 7:15am and her eyes are almost shut from the swelling.
My sister told me she thought I had shingles and not an allergic reaction. Do allergic reactions normally take this long to go away? I'm on my way to work today looking like I have some disorder or measles or exzema? I can't stay out of work any longer. No one else in the family has broken out so I'm guessing I'm not contageious either. Should I ask to have my blood taken? What would tell us why this happened if anything?
What symptoms do you have on eating wheat? Any other food substances which cause a similar reaction? You definitely had a severe allergic reaction called anaphylaxis frm what treatment you have been given in the ER. Without delay and without waiting for the symptoms to subside on their own, you should go ahead and consult an allergy specialist - to find out the possible cause of your symptoms and also to avoid any such incidents in the future.
After we got the shots,the vet said she might have an allergic reaction and to watch her for the first 24 hours. If she did have a reaction, we were suppose to give her Benedryl and if that did not work to call the emergency vet. During the first 24 hours the dog scratched often and her eyes were bloodshot. The severe reaction happened 36 hours later when her eye and right side of the face swelled. Thankfully Benedryl worked.

My eyes are red and swollen, mostly under neath. They also have a burning itch to them. It started on one eye and then a couple weeks later went to the right eye. The right eye lid is swollen and the eye lid is very red from the outter corner to the middle of the eye lid. My doctor put me on an antihistimine. The swelling and redness will reduce, but then it comes back. The skin appears dry like it needs to be moisturized, but when I moisturize it, that seems to irritate it more.
hello all -- I have had bouts of a allergic reaction to something-- don't know if it's food or what. It starts with itchy and scaly eyelids and then it leads wrinkles & swelling under my eyes. I also get dry, rough lips with cracking at the ends of my lips. I am just so frustrated b/c I don't know if it is something I am eating or my makeup. I have tried food allergy tests, detox programs, allergy patch testing.
Sometimes the morning when i wake up, my eyes are extremely swollen. So swollen that my eyelids completely disappear. I literally look like the alien from the ET movie.

I usually put ice on it to make the swelling stop and it works after a couple of hours.
My two year old son woke up with swollen eyes on 2/28/11. After a visit to the pediatrician, the nurse practioner diagnosed him with a sinus infection coming out of the eye. He did not have a fever and did not have a runny nose or even cough. He was treated with amoxicillian until 3/8 where he was back at the pediatricians office because he was not improving. The nurse practioner gave the same diagnosis and changed the medication to augmentin.
I definitely had shingles but they are done now and almost completely healed, I don't have shingles in my eye thank God, and my swollen eyes is likely do to some type of allergic reaction....

At least I am not going crazy researching on the Internet and pray the steroid shot helps and these swollen eyes dont return again. Thanx for your response.
Red swollen itchy sometimes scaly eyes. I have never had any problems and developed this eye problem a year and a half ago. My doctors have there ideas of what it is but....they don't seem to suffer from my problem and I really don't think putting cortizone cream on my eyelids is a great idea. I was also on a diet of drinking water and not eating any sugar, salt , flour, wheat, soy, tomatoes, potatoes, pork...etc.
Yesterday I brought him to the ER with a severe red bumpy body rash from face to toes. Also- lips, eyes, joints were swollen. Shallow breathing. NOTE: his hemoglobin was checked and was 20 at this time. After giving him adrenaline, benedryl, cortizone, oxygen and prednizone tablet symptoms subsided. He was released. Less than 3 hours later he was back in the Er with same symptoms but more severe! Again, the cycle of drugs was given and symptoms subsided.
My daughter has hay fever, for which she takes Claritin in the summer months. Just before Christmas she had an episode with puffy, swollen eyes, after smelling and handling herbal-scented soaps in a store. Then, after Christmas, she decided the benzoyl peroxide in the Clearasil cream also made her eyelids swell, so she stopped using it. About the same time, her friend bought her a new winter hat, and she wore it a lot on a week-long ski trip.
Woke up today looking as if someone punched me in both of my eyes and cheeks - extremely swollen. I don't know what to do. My mother suggested taking a benedryl. I called the helpline for the products and they just told me to discontinue using them and they will send me a refund check. Anyone else have this problem when using an acne therapy system? What should I do? Do i need to see a doctor? Thanks!
I remembered using it before and having the same red, itchy, and blotchy reaction. This time burning and flaming pain, eyes swollen and puffy. I am searching for a mild facial cleanser simply to remove my make up in the evenings and moisturize my skin. Prescriptives has discontinued their line, which is a major bummer. The Aloe facial cleanser was perfect, gentle, and always had people asking me what I used for my skin.
I have hay fever type allergies and have seen some references that acai may cause an allergic reaction in people allergic to pollen, but have never in the past experienced any type of allergic reaction to food or medication.
After taking the medication for 3 1/2 days I woke up with eyes swollen nearly shut. Doctor advised discontinuing medication. An irritating all over skin itch followed shortly. Doctor proscribed Elocon and prednisone 2 per day for 5 days, one per day for 5 days. The prednisone seemed to help the itch but the itch worsened when prednisone stopped. My skin looks kind of blotchy and itches like crazy. I get these little postules where I have scratched.
About three days ago,I woke up itching all over and realized I had broke out in hives on my buttocks. When I woke up the next day my eyes and lips were swollen also.

After visiting the emergency room 2X,the doctors first thought it was a allergy to my new kitten.

What does the lotion "Lubriderm" contain that would cause an allergic reaction- redness swelling of hands & face- even palms? I am confident that this was from the Lubriderm as I wiped off an excess of the lotion on the side of my cheek and my cheek was red and swelling. My hands were worse as I had applied double the lotion when I started to itch -I thought it dryness due to the cold.
