Hello,

Thank you for replying.

Recurrent swelling of lids with no other eye symptoms could indicate an angioneurotic edema ( angioedema).

It is treated with antihistamines like tab.cetrizine 10 mg once daily at night for 1 week. The edema can be reduced with a combination of tab.diclofenac+paracetamol+serratiopeptidase , 1 tab twice a day for 4-5 days.

Avoiding the allergen if you can identify, can help prevent further recurrances.

Thanks and best wishes
