Today my daughter came home from school feeling something in

Customer Question

Hello,Today my daughter came home from school feeling something in her eye. She says it was windy and something got in her eye while walking home from school. I already put in some eye drops and dhe flushed it with water but she still feels something. But I don't see anything in it it just looks a little swollen than her other eye but I think that may be because she rubbed it. It diesnt itch and she does not have a fever. She is
a little congested. I'm thinking alergies or could it be a pink eye? how can i know and what can I give her?

Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.
I understand your concern.
Well as you describe,possibly she may suffer from irritant/allergic conjunctivitis.

You should try OTC Zaditor eye drops and continue cool compresses with cool water.

Also give her OTC Motrin and Claritin.

She should avoid rubbing as much as possible and clean the eye with soft cotton cloth.

She should do deep breathing.

And nasal saline spray can be tried.

Most likely she'll be fine.

If her eye swelling'll get worse over the time then see her to ophthalmologist for further evaluation and management.
