Swollen eyelid from insect bite

Common Questions and Answers about Swollen eyelid from insect bite


Avatar f tn Hello, From the symptoms, one possibility is of insect bite. The second possibility is of angioedema. 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.
Avatar n tn Thank you for your response.Here is the other problem.. I just started a new job and funds are tight right now..and I think I might have the flu...what else can I do for him at home?? I am giving him 800 mg bid and benadryl adult doe 2 capsules every 6 hours...is this adequate?? If they fought it would have to be thru the kennel wire and have never seen them do that.
Avatar f tn It is very ichy and my ankle is a little swollen and feels hot to the touch. The bite itself is tiny and has a slightly raised bump in the middle. Any ideas?
Avatar n tn I was not very smart and used Vaporub on an insect bite on an eyelid. I admit it is totally my fault I have this problem. The eyelid and area above have been red and swollen for four days. I would have thought the redness and swelling would be gone by now, but it is still there. Is there anything I can do to reduce the swelling and get rid of the redness? Thank you.
Avatar f tn I went to a local dermatologist who said I had a spider bite. It is on my eyelid and the outer area. Red, swollen, itchy. He gave me an antibiotic which after 5 days there is no change. My question is could it be shingles? I have put tea tree oil on it and some of the swelling has gone down, but it is extremely painful and feels like something is constantly "crawling" around the eye area. Help!!
Avatar f tn Hi, welcome to the forum, with hornet sting, the symptom varies from minor bite pain to life threatening anaphylactic shock. The types of manifestations encountered are local reactions, systemic allergic reactions, toxic reactions, and delayed reactions. According to your history it suggests 'Delayed reactions'. Less than 0.3 percent of insect sting reactions will result in a delayed reaction and esp. seen with multiple stings. It is usually seen 7-10 days post insect stings.

Avatar n tn Randomly my lip will swell, my eyelid, sections of my ankle or elbow. One nostril has swollen as well. They don't all of these at the same time, just at random times. It has even happend when I haven't eaten or drank anything. Any suggestions/ reasons why this his happening are welcome.
Avatar n tn 5F fever and hives all over her face, swollen lip, swollen eyelid. We just got her bloodwork done on Wed and are awaiting the test results. The pediatric rheumatologist ordered those tests and we will know the outcome only after two weeks. So it is an agonizing wait. The docs suspect Lupus and JRA as well. I notice that you are in Bryan, TX. I am in SA, TX. I noticed that few others on this forum were also from a nearby area. Could environment be a factor? Or is it just a coincidence.
Avatar m tn The botfly can be deposited by a bite from the mosquito. The toxoplasmosis can be contracted from cats. The Jewel wasp can inject its eggs into a caterpillar, cricket or carpet beetle. The latter would explain why I have found tiny jewel wasps (about 6 in as many years), along with small fly wings, and broken cricket legs.
Avatar n tn The Doctor thought it was a swollen lymph node from strep throat. I kind of forgot about it until the other night I was helping my son in the bath and noticed the lump was still there? It seems to move a little and feels kind of hard but squishy. How can I be sure this isn't a sign of Cancer. I am going to take him back to the doctors. He hasn't been sick lately and acts normal. Help I can't help to think the worst. The internet has me thinking that way.
574219 tn?1217356018 But one day when I took a tissue to remove it from the corner she winced and I realized her eye was sore. Took her to the Vet and they diagnosed her with Dry Eye. She is perfect, nice teeth, skin no allergies. Her bloodwork showed nothing unusual. Doxy seems to have done NOTHING. The only thing I changed was from Advantage to Comfortis? And neither Vet seems to think that could be the cause. Now on the body odor, lately she has been having a "not so fresh" smell.
Avatar n tn About 3 weeks ago, my right eyelid started swelling, but at the same time, I had just caught a cold. I thought it was all related. Well, the cold went away and I still have a swollen right eyelid and under both eyes they are sore, red, itchy, and scaly. It looks worse and worse, like I've been punched in both eyes. The swelling on the right lid has subsided with use of hot water and neosporin, but every morning, it would come back, and after a hot shower, it would go back to normal.
Avatar n tn Done the gammit of allergy tests, ear docs, eye problems-floaters, ear aches from hell neck and jaw swollen all the time, headaches. reading all of these pages has actually given me some relief! I asked my doctor about the relationship of my ear face and neck pain and he says he's never heard of the relationship between bad teeth and all these symptoms. I have extremely painful teeth and am ready to have them all pulled. Can't afford it but willing to go through it some how.
Avatar n tn I woke up one morning only to find what I thought was an insect bite turned into an extremely red rash containing small clusters of blisters. Luckily for me, that rash didn't form the infamous 'band' associated with shingles...but the skin under my right arm is very sensitive. I have experienced mild pain, however last night was the worst. All day today, I've been fine where pain is concerned. I think I contracted a very mild dose of the shingles. Don't mess around with sore, sensitive skin.
Avatar n tn I recently got the red bumps around my eyes (in October). My eyes were swollen shut and the bridge of my nose between my eyes was swollen so badly that I looked like a monster (could not wear my eye glasses because my face was too swollen). I was sent to a Endocrinologist and a Rheumotologist. They ran a battery of tests, perscribed a regimne of steroids and powerful antibotics. The swelling and bumps cleared up and all was well until two days ago (its back).
551343 tn?1506834118 I'm 42yrs old, mother of adult son, but have had undiagnosed symptoms off and on for years. From Joint pain and swelling to lymph node swelling and tenderness to now currently weakness (heavy feeling) and constant tiredness. I was diagnosed about a year and a half ago with a dead gallbladder which was removed...and it was dead. But now my PCP is testing for Autoimune and Viral/baterial infections: Mono, Lyme, Celiac and Lupus. I won't get the test results for another 24hrs or so.
Avatar f tn these are clusters of white or fleshy hard and sticky plugs-- not filled with anything, but they stick straight out from the pores. They are not bumps. If I rub the area w/ a towel they do not rub off at all. I tried to remove one with tweezers, and it was very tacky (as in sticky) and clearly goes deep under the skin. Part of it broke off but I could still see that the pore was plugged and a day or two later top of the plug was sticking out again.
Avatar n tn I have gone down hill in the past week. My autonomic NS has been acting up also. I go from constipation to diarrhea on and off. I am trying to get in to a new neurologist at Mass General Hospital. They said hopefully before Christmas. I hope to not get any more weak before then. I did go to a neurologist last Friday who said I have polyneuropathy. I have started to go much further down hill though. I have read all the posts here and feel for all of you.
Avatar n tn I itch all over and don't really have any outward symptoms. Just a couple little red swollen areas that I think are from scratching. Its all over my body but mostly my legs and abdomen/chest and ribs. Doesn't seem like anyone's found much of a solution to this problem.
Avatar n tn I have been suffering for over a decade with pressure in head confusion spacey feelings, brain at one time felt as if it were floating head, tired feelings, eye sensitivity from light and air, eyes feel like there crossing from time to time. Ive had mri, upperskeletol tests, blood work . have tried chiropractor, talk therapy , psychiatrist (with meds), eating healthier exercise thinking maybe its a stress related issue, still no clear answers . any suggestions??
Avatar n tn The tingles came back but in my feet and I became convinced my feet were swollen and having troubles. I have had blood tests...waiting..from my heart doc..my yearly thing anyways. I have no family history in diabetes or kidney problems and haven't had anything to make me think that. In 2004 a report showed my blood levels normal I guess my point is that when you obsess over symptoms, it heightens them and can cause more.
Avatar m tn they recently did serological testing on me and found i have lyme disease (borreliosis) after a tick bite from 3 years ago. has anyone of you been bitten by a tick as well? please let me know, and if you have any serological testing done could you please report the outcome on this board? i'm hoping this could explain the symptoms!
