Swollen eyelid allergic reaction

Common Questions and Answers about Swollen eyelid allergic reaction

swollen

First of all you need to see an ophthalmologist to see if you have developed some sort of allergic reaction or something else. Second, these type of products, available without prescription, won't really work. The only product that really makes eyelashes grow thicker, longer and darker is Latisse and I've seen the product work in person (no financial interes.) Good luck, and get it checked out. It's a shame that all you got were side effects and you won't get any real effect.
I often wake up with a large, swollen eyelid. This has happened for over a month now. It alternates between both the left and right eye, top or bottom eyelid, and sometimes even both. There is no pain, and the swelling is normally reduced after using a cold compress... I have not noticed any patterns as to when the swelling occurs, and went weeks without makeup to see if that would help (if it was an allergic reaction.) Nothing seems to be effective, what could be the problem?
not likely an allergic reaction. Use warm compresses to eyelid. If not better over 24 hrs make arrangements to see eye MD on Monday.
I often wake up with one large, swollen, heavy eyelid. This has happened on and off since last year. It alternates between both the left and right eye, top or bottom eyelid, and sometimes even both. There is no pain, and the swelling is normally slightly reduced after using a cold compress... It is not the same puffiness that occurs after crying, it is more of a heavy and droopy upper eyelid.

I have changed makeup and wash my eyelid. Why would the swelling be just in one eyelid if it is an allergic reaction? I do not have any discharge. My eye does start to burn and I rub without thinking before the swelling occurs.
leads me to believe that it's definitely an allergic reaction. I have another friend who is allergic to all waxes that contain beeswax. Apparently there is a sugar based wax that she does not have any allergic reaction to. I'm going to try that myself as the hives I get are getting worse each time I get waxed. For me it's a little different b'c I've been getting waxed for over 15 years & have always had little red bumps that go away in a day or two.
Please let me know whether you recovered from that strange eyelid swelling or not. Your case seems to me to be an allergic reaction. I am perturbed by the fact that though doc s in India diagnosed it as allergy is not as simple as that.
(very tiny tiny bump) next morning woke up to crusty eyelashes, white part of eye slightly swollen, and pinkish color eye and swollen upper eyelid. Went to eye dr he wasn't sure what the issue is, informed wasnt pink eye nor a stye, but prescribed maxitrol to use twice a day. Third day using maxitrol and redness is gone however swelling of upper eyelid still present, nothing horrible, and the little bump is still itching like MAD.
You may be having an allergic reaction to the drops or the inflammation from the stye has spread. Dr. O.
Unexplained swelling of the face, eyes, ears etc without any predisposing disease is frequently caused by allergies. An allergic reaction can occur suddenly, even in a person with no previous history of allergy. This swelling is called angioedema. Diagnosis is by clinical examination and complete blood tests, electrolytes and renal function tests. Treatment is by antihistaminics like Benadryl or Zyrtec and steroids. If the symptoms persist then please get it evaluated from a physician.
Several months ago I started using make up again, had no problems, and then out of the blue, again, my left eyelid got swollen, then red, then itchy and then scaley. The skin on my eyelid is so stretched now that even when it's not swollen, it droops over my eyelashes. I went to see an ophtalmologist again recently, but he said he it was probalbly from sleeping on my side (which I did not really buy).

The problem began with watering of my left eye only out of the inner corner. This water wouldn't leak don my cheeks, it would collect on the top of my eyelid. This made just the corner red and irritated. Then the skin started cracking in the corners. I was given Pataday and antibotic ointment to put on these cuts and was told it was allergy related. This didn't help the problem. I waited a while to see if the eye would clear on it's own. It didn't. It got WORSE AND WORSE AND WORSE.
If it's swollen, painful to touch and red a stye is likely If its swollen but no pain and hard bump in lid chalazion is likely If its swollen and itchy no pain no readness some sort of allergic reaction is likely. You can try warm compresses but if it doesn't improve soon see an ophthalmologist. Find one near you at www.aao.
It sounds like your mother has an infection. Also, the eye is a very delicate area (optic nerve, etc). I hope the Dr. gave her a tetanus booster as well. I hope everything is ok. My boyfriend got stung on the eyelid yesterday & be cause he does have a history of localized reaction to stings his eyelid was huge this morning. The Dr gave him two shots; one being a tetanus. He also prescribed oral antibiotics. I hope your mom has come out of this well.
I didnt think much about it and just started to rub it to get relief. By the next mornign, my eyelid was swollen, red and itchy. I suffered through much of the weekend and on Sunday went to an urgent care center. They hardly looked at my eye but diagnosed me with blepharitis, and prescribed an oral antibiiotic (also which is also used to treat an std), and a cream to put inside of my eye. I used this for a few days, although nothing was wrong with my actual eye.. And of course it didnt help.
Let me explain my history before I pose my question. I have an allergic reaction to aspirin and ibruprophren where my eyes (eyelids specifically) swell. I have to take two benadryl to make it go down and if I don't take enough the swelling spreads along the nerves in my face like my cheeks and lips. I haven't taken aspirin or Ibruprophren for about 10 years so I've avoided this allergic reaction.
She never used it again so we put it down to the lanolin in this product which seems to give lots of people an allergic reaction .Then about 3 weeks ago I bought my wife a mothers day treat and wished i'd never bothered !!! This was a Victoria Jackson makeup set with all the freebies that there pushing in WH Smiths. After using the makeup my wifes eyelids became swollen(baggy) , itchy and flaky a few days later.
I was stung on the eyelid by a hornet 8 days ago. I am allergic so went to the Doctor immediately with epi pen in hand. The reaction was not severe, a few hives an hour after the sting, a queasy stomach and some swelling around the eye and face area. After 5 days or so all the swelling went away and back to normal. The sting area never itched like all the other stings I have had. This is my first hornet sting experience.
You could have an allergic reaction of the skin around the eyes, or some type of skin infection or some other type of skin inflammation disorder. You need to see an ophthalmologist for the eyelid problem and probably a dermatologist as well. Sorry, but I can't make any specific treatment recommendations without seeing you.
Hi, welcome to the forum, swollen eyelid can be secondary to allergy. Which is due to hypersensitivity reaction (type 1). We cannot rule out the allergen, we can just guide to rule out the probable allergen. Drugs like amoxicillin, pets, certain garments, environmental allergen and certain food (fish, mushroom, peanuts, soy etc) can cause such reaction. Also swollen eyelids or face are sign of kidney disorder.
I noticed on the inside bottom of my eyelid was red and a form of a white pimple, is what I saw.I don't know if it's an allergic reaction or a bite of some kind.I took some benedryl and put some drops for the pink eye,but i'm wanting to know what it could be.
I put a dab of lavender oil on a swab and dabbed on my eyelid..by 10am my eye was more swollen - it is now swollen shut. Sinuses are better and cough is productive... I have experienced the swelling of my hand and bottom lip seperately at different times --- so, I'm sure it is an allergic reaction...possibly to Comet Bathroom Cleaner-when I am run down...only common denominator I can come up with right now.
he rubbed his eye and that is when it began to swell up i dont now if it is an allergic reaction or not because we eat there often. the food was spicy maybe there was something on his finger when he rubbed it. its still a little swollen he has taken medicine and applied ice lest night.
Hi, i am a 38 yr old caucasian female who has been drinking beer since 16. I started getting an allergic reaction about ten years ago. I drank mostly Miller Light. My chin started getting red and flaky under the corners of my mouth. I couldn't figure out what it was for a really long time. Then i went to London and drank European beers with no problems to my face at all. I decided to switch to Coors Light.....no red chin but gives me diarrhea. I started drinking Bud Light.....

(My son is allergic to Amoxycillin). The antihistamine may help you if this is as a result of an allergic reaction to something. I was prscribed with Cetirizine Hydrochloride 10mg (antihistamine) for dry itchy eyes. I presume that you are not applying any make up, eye shadow etc, as these can cause allergic reactions, even some face moisturisers. Use hyperallergenic products.
Hi, For how long have you noted this? Do you have other associated conditions like itchiness over the eyelids, flaking or scaling of the area involved? Any eye redness, eye pain or a sensation of sand trapped in the eye? Are both eyes involved? With what you have posted and taking into account that you have a strong history of allergies, this may be a case of blepharitis.I am thinking of seborrheic blepharitis. There are other causes of blepharitis ( swelling and redness of the eyelids).
