Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Dear doctor , it happen more than 48 hours before and she is taking Ibuprofen 400 mg (1+1+1) 8 pills she take yet and icing the effected area with ice cube (it reduce swollen but not much ) age is 28 and inside eye on white area there is red spots 1 or two but vision is fine ...
Regards
Expert:  Dr. Anil Kumar replied 1 year ago.

From what you describe there is hematoma formation.(Periorbital hematoma)

Unless there is actual trauma to the eye itself,extensive medical attention is generally not needed.

Applying an ice pack will keep down swelling.So continue icing the area.

Continue with Ibuprofen 400 mg TDS.

 

Also the red spot you describe may be slight sub conjunctival hemorrhage and may not require treatment.

 

The warning signs which suggest a more extensive medical treatment include

Double vision

Loss of vision

Inability to move eye.

Ear,nose,throat bleed.

 

I hope this helps

Dear doctor , thanks for your kind reply .. In how much time swelling will be completely down ? and how many days black eye will be ok ? and for how many days she should apply ice ... ? Also how many days she should take Ibuprofen ?
P.s pain in cheek bone is not alarming ? She also have pain in backside of eye lid
Regards
Expert:  Dr. Anil Kumar replied 1 year ago.

Swelling will be down in 7days.Hematoma takes at least 28days to completely heal.

She should apply ice for 2-3 days from now.

Painkiller can be taken for atleast a week especially if pain don't subside.

If possible a precautionary X-Ray of Skull for orbits and PNS water's view can be done to rule out any underlying bony injury.

I hope this helps
