Eye allergies in kids

Common Questions and Answers about Eye allergies in kids


Avatar f tn Hello, I was hoping to find out if it is normal to have stringy discharge in your eyes if you have allergies. I have had seasonal allergies since I was 9, I am now 43. The junk in my eye that I can pull out which is ewww and irritating, it's there when my allergies are bad, and even when I'm not dealing with allergies, it's just a lot more when my eyes are irritated, swollen, and hurting. What can be done for a remedy.
Avatar f tn I have an eye allergy that started several years ago, after I had pneumonia. My heating/air system at home and in the car irritates my eyes. When the air blows in my face it irritates the veins/blood vessel around my eyes, they get puff and swollen that causes the pressure in my eyes to go up. I'm using four different eye drops provided by my doctor. I only have close-up vision in my left eye and I'm worried that I may soon lose site in my right eye.

Avatar m tn An allergist or eye doctor can prescribe eye drops for allergies.
Avatar f tn I don't have allergies, but I use an eye mist for my dry/red eyes. I can't remember the name of it right now, but I'm pretty sure it is the only one in mist form.
Avatar f tn As far as the eye- there are several things that can cause black spots in your eye- there is a great eye care community here that you should post this question in, a doctor usually responds in there, so check that out and think about making an appointment for that as well- here's a link to the eye care community- https://medhelp.
Avatar f tn Hello! Has anyone ever dealt with eye swelling in their child(ren?) My 23 month old has had a swollen right eye now for a few days. She had this same symptom on the right side last August. Just a pink, puffy eyelid. No drainage, no fever, not painful. But she does rub it occasionally. The sclera of her eye is still white and she is able to move her eye normally. She has not had any new foods, no new detergents/soaps. I just cannot pinpoint why this happened again to her?!?
Avatar f tn I thought it was just allergies since i have terrible allergies when spring comes, or probaly from me playing with my dog and touching my eye. But this morning as i rubbed it to stop the itch, my eye felt weird. I looked in the mirror and notice the corner is a little swollen. Also i notice when i pull down my eyelid i see like this idk what to call it i think its part of the eyelid that holds the eye, it is also a little swollen . . .

Maybe you should take him in so they can see if is having an allergic reaction or if it's something else. I know with rashes they have a hard time diagnosing but they should be able to rule out allergic reaction. Just an idea.
Avatar m tn I recenlty did this and noticed the next day my left eye felt swollen and sore. Can dust get in your eyes and cause inflamation. My eye is not eye or itcy.
Avatar n tn It could be an allergy that builds up and then goes into override, allergies that make the fluid levels in the ear higher, lot sof things. Now some fevers are ok not to give meds for as the fever helps the body fight it and if it can't it will heppen over and over and the fevers get higher as a naural responce to fight it. Are you sure it was not casued by a vaccine? That can do it!
Avatar f tn I've never had bad allergies before. In fact I would only sneeze once in a blue moon. But for a few weeks now my eyes have been itching so bad and I would itch them to the point that I've already had two infections of my eyelid on the left side.It would swell my eyelid almost till my eye was shut. I have a pretty bad history of staph infections. Also the roof of my mouth has been itching and when it starts to itch it will get these hard lumps on one side at a time.
Avatar m tn m going to look into them as soon as I get off work today. As the day progresses my eye ends up feeling better. In the morning, sheesh... it feels like I drag myself to work with it. I've had allergies to hay in the past but we've had our first cut around here and it isn't bothering me. its cottonwood trees.... and they are everywhere.
Avatar f tn Hi Doc, I have a red ring around my pupil that only shows up when my pupils get small. This isnt pink eye, allergies, or bloodshot eyes because it dosen't look like it or feel like it. Now i have a hazel or greenish colored iris. And when my pupils get small i see a red ring that shows up around my pupil that is like a scattered ring it spikes up to different lengths in different parts on the outside of the ring.
Avatar f tn She takes meds every night for her allergies. Just woke her up for school and her left eye and cheek are puffy and swollen. She was playing with a cat last night but no more than usual. Should i keep her out of school or what?! Any advice is appreciated.
Avatar f tn Medications and cosmetics can play a significant role in causing eye allergies. Traditional treatment and management of allergies consisted simply of avoiding the allergen in question or otherwise reducing exposure.
Avatar f tn In recent months, there has been a marked increase in "floaters" and the vision in my right eye goes very blurry several times a day. While the episodes of blurring is always in my right eye, most the floaters are in my left. Do these things warrant a trip to a doctor? Or might they just be due to being tired and getting older? Just for context... I'm 34, female, I've had 2 kids in the last 2.5 years.
2044839 tn?1331255841 I've had a twitch in my right eye for about 2 weeks now its a all day event, it almost never seems to go away, im not in pain just alot of discomfort. Could i be needing glasses or could it be more serious??? Thoughts and ideas greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn My allergies are terrible what can I take that isn't harmful to my baby. Runny noise watery eye sneezing every five minutes I'm miserable.
Avatar f tn i found out i had allergies last year, and when i was a child i had surgery on a blocked tear duct. I used to have a feeling that there was a rock in the corner of my right eye (the same eye i had the surgery on) and about 30 minutes ago i was washing my face and i dicovered a lump in the corner of my right eye and im not sure what its from. This has never happened to me before and its very painful, its causing a headache and its making my other allery symptoms worse.
