Avatar n tn After 2 days with it getting worse, he went to an eye doctor who told him he had an allergy in the eye. He gave him a steroid eye "goop" to use once a day. His eye is getting worse everyday. Was he mis-diagnosed? When do we go to the ER or another Dr? Its very swollen around the eye, watery, ***** and extremely painful. I hate to see him like this and worry there may be some damage done if we are not treating it right. Ive been surfing the web and cant find any symptoms like his.
Avatar n tn My six year old son was with me in the backyard and in a matter of minutes his eye swelled shut. Assuming it was a grass allergy, he got some benadryl and went to sleep. It has been 2 hrs and the swelling is reduced but not gone. Any other ideas on what I can do to help him out. I have washed and rinsed the eye numerous times and cannot see anything internal irritant inside the eye.
Avatar m tn 9 F and his right eye was swollen shut and had blue and red bruises on the eye lid and under the eye he had also red patches on his legs and hands with small white dots which were itching. I went to the ER and by then the red patches went away almost completely but the eye looked worse, they assumed it was an allergy and gave him Benadryl. That didn’t work, the next morning when he woke up and his eye was shut completely I went to a Dr.
Avatar n tn Hello, my left top eye lid is swollen to where my eye is almost shut. It has been like this for the last 7 days now. My lymph node on the side of my neck (left side) is swollen too and hurts to touch. Doesnt seem to be getting better. Saw my PCP yesterday and started me on Amox Clav and Benadryl. Nothing seems to be getting better only worse. Today it looks like a thin layer of film is trying to cover the inside of my eye.

Avatar m tn I wake up in the morning with the eye nearly swollen shut and a sensation that there is something 'wiggling' around under my eye in the skin. It really itches and typically disappears after a few days. What can cause this recurring problem (allergens/frequent bike riding)?

Avatar n tn The next day his forehead was so swollen it looked like he had a deformity. We used iced cloths and benadryl. The next morning his left eye was completely swollen shut. But the swelling of the forehead had gone down. We were so concerned as to what had caused it . Allergies or a insect bite.
Avatar n tn My son also gets swollen eyes. It only happens when he is sick. The doctors think he is allergic to omnicef so stopped giving it to him. Today it happened after he took motrin. I took him to urgent care and they gave him a antibotic in the omnicef family even though o told them several times he was allergic to it. Thank god I called his regular ped doc before I gave it to him. Doesn't explain why his eyes were swollen to begin with though.
Avatar f tn While out for a run over the weekend, I noticed my left eye getting swollen. I thought that perhaps I got something in it and continued on my run. Soon I had to cut my run short and noticed my tounge was swelling as well. My wife happened to be driving home and saw my face. She thought I had fallen and wanted to take me to the urgent care center in town. I felt that perhaps I was just a bit dehydrated until I saw my face in the mirror. It turns out I was having an alergic reaction to something.
Avatar m tn I should have added, I had my affected eye shut all day, for a period of 24 hours. Is that enough to cause blurred vision? Due to light sensitivity, I am wearing an eyepatch.
Avatar n tn this very same thing happened me today and i really wish i knew why because it was terrible although my eyes had been itching for about a week as well as a sore/itchy throat and nose and i had been rubbing them intensely and i also wear contacts, in approx 15 mins my left eye had swollen shut i was leaving the mall. Went to emergency room and got no answers! It was like my eyes said, today is the day no more itching!
Avatar n tn Today he woke up, with left side of his face swollen and eye almost swollen shut. Any recommendations. Please help. No insurance. Thank you.

Avatar f tn I woke up about serval weeks ago with just my left eye swollen exactly how you described! My first thought(and everyone else around me) was that it was a stye. The symptons sounds very simillar apart from the main differnce, there was no sign of a pimple like thing anywhere to be seen. The first day i woke up with it abit blown up and sore. By the second day it got bigger and itchiness occur at the corner of my eye. The more i touched it the more itchier it become.
Avatar n tn Many possibilites, styes, allergy to make up, etc. If it get worse see an ophthalmologist. Dr. O.
Avatar n tn My daughter was on Armour and doing great..then 1st trip to ER wih one swollen eye, put on Allegra, then 10 days later she almost died...both eyes swollen shut, throat closing, hives, etc. Since that happened a couple of weeks ago she is now allergic to dust, mold, her makeup and lotion...EVERYTHING. She quit Armour obviously, but it looks like the Armour did something to her immune system and now for the 1st time in her life she is allergic to EVERYTHING.

Avatar m tn At this point, it is happening once to twice a month including swollen lips and tounge. I have tried allegra, zyrtec, claritin and benadryl. It is now lasting 2 to 3 days. Does anyone know anything about something like this? My glands are not swollen. Thanks.
790967 tn?1432768410 about 9 years ago i was running around my house and both my eyes swelled shut it had never done it before but for some reason now every time i run even from my house to my driveway it'll swell it starts with a small lump under my eye them my nose seems to clog up and feel very stuffed and not a minute after i get the small bump both my eyes swell and stay swollen for two days no longer i dont know whats causing it, ive been to the allergist they first told me it was a milk allergy but milk doesn
Avatar f tn And they can likely prescribe a good allergy medication and eye drops to use daily to prevent or relieve symptoms. I personally avoid using commercial drops like Visine, etc that promise to get the redness out, because they work by restricting the blood vessels and if used too often can cause a rebound effect, where the eyes will look and feel 10 times worse. Plus, I find they sting like crazy, making me sneeze which makes my eye water even more...
Avatar n tn I had a severe reaction to temporary caps and now permanent caps and experienced all the things you describe, ending in a trip to the ED with anaphylactic syndrome, swelling throat, wet breathing, and near drowning in my own fluids. It's been 6 months and I still have sores in my mouth and particularly painful, over the front new caps. I was tested by an allergist but had prednisone (steroid) treatment to prevent uh...death...
Avatar n tn Hello, Your symptoms of dry tight throat, uneasiness and difficulty in breathing and headaches are pointing towards the diagnosis of allergy to onion/ garlic, in any form. Garlic-sensitive patients showed positive tests to diallyldisulfide, allylpropyldisulfide, allylmercaptan and allicin, all present in garlic. Even if garlic is present in a very small amount,it can lead to an allergic reaction.
Avatar f tn So we followed up with the Pediatrician today (his is out for the Thanksgiving Holiday so had to see a different doc) and she said she agrees with ER about allergic reaction not Pink Eye, took him off the one eye drop and gave us Pataday eye drops and told me to check in if it wasn't better on Monday. Here are my concerns. After the ER visit my brother mentioned how that happened while they were fishing a week ago but the swelling went away within 15 minutes.
Avatar n tn Hi, Caffeine Allergy Symptoms Caffeine allergy symptoms range from a minor rash to life threatening seizures. The severity of the reaction depends on what the person is actually allergic to and to what extent a person is allergic. Some of the reactions associated with caffeine allergies include difficulty breathing, shock, tongue, and facial swelling.
Avatar f tn As it got worse I noticed that the fluid of my eye was bubbling, which has never happened. I took allergy meds and eye drops. This morning it still swollen, and visibly smaller than my right eye. I'm seeing long white strings every once in a while. My concern is that I don't have vision insurance.what could possibly be happening?
Avatar n tn There are some general medical problems that might cause this especially if you wake up with swollen ankles and hands. You are going to need to see an Eye MD (ophthalmologist) for a comprehensive medical eye examination. After that you may be directed to your personal physician for a medical evaluation. If none of this helps you may need to see an allergist.
Avatar f tn When I woke in the morning both eyes where massively swollen, my right eye was much worse and was barely open. I assumed the Papaw being quite a heavy vaseline type ointment had maybe not allowed the skin to breathe so I have now avoided it. I applied cooled spoons which after several hours of holding to my eyes seemed to being down the swelling but left my eyes still very red and sort of wrinkly looking.
