Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Other then the eye swelling is your daughter having any other symptoms or signs anywhere else? Does she seem to be acting the same or does she seem sick/upset?
Hi, thanks for your reply.
she is a happy child and continues to be so, so no change there, but her appetite is low and her sleep is broken.
Hi. Welcome to chat.
She is quite whiney and clingy which I have put down to being aged 2. Also her lack of sleeping through the night I have put down to the need to reduce her afternoon nap from 2 hours to 1.
So what happens now?
You are very correct that the current treatment is dealing with the symptoms and not the cause of the problem
Are both her upper and lower lids on both eyes swollen? Do they swell up so much that she has problems opening them?
There is something wrong with the chat system....things are not getting through. I'll switch to the Q&A system where we can continue to work on your question. See you there....
Only her upper lids, both, sometimes one more than the other. Her face is also bloated. Her eyes today were almost closed with the swelling. But the swelling isn't always this bad. She is in bed now and the swelling has gone down again, but tomorrow is another day and it may come back during the ight.
