Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
I woke up with a VERY swollen under eye, just on my right side. I got Restalyne injected 4 months ago and wonder if this has anything to do with it. This also happened to BOTH eyes 3 months ago.
Is it a spider bite (no "head" to swelling)? An allergic reaction? It doesn't hurt. I went to the doctor and they gave me medrol and bactrin. Is that right? The medrol hasn't helped... I haven't started bactrin yet.
Should I also take Claritin?
Would the picture be public?
is this a private chat?
ok - I'll try to upload now
Tender to touch... but not painful at ALL. squishy for sure
not at all
but I'm traveling a LOT for work
I work as a on camera reporter and I'm worried about this not going away.
This happened once before months ago... but both eyes
and just went away. Is it allergies? does the restalyne play a part (I'd never done that before)
but it was 4 months ago
no - the first time was 5 weeks after the injection
everyone thinks I'm nuts to think it's THAT... but I've never had this problem before. I've had tearing and redness from allergies. But not THIS BAD
should I continue to take the steroid?
start the anti-biotic?
cold compress better than warm?
ok - my last question...
the anti biotic, I read, can cause horrible reactions in people
and I can't afford to be out of work because I have to be on camera tomorrow
should I risk it? Take OTC Claritin? or just the steriod
safe with steriod
thank you so much!
I mean... I wish I knew what it was exactly... but I guess there is no way to REALLY know. I spent an hour in urgent care and the doctor had no idea. Very frustrating!
I thank you so much for your time
