Customer Question
Last night my eye...

Last night my eye started to get puffy today it was nearly swollen shut. Icing it makes the swelling good down but the eye lid is still swollen and there is a white bump below the lashes on the upper lid (where the swelling is occurring).

Doctor's Assistant: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?

Just noticed it last night No injury

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had an injury in the same eye about a year ago from basketball

Sorry to hear about that. Well it could be die to the bump you notice there or an allergic reaction to something that might have stung you . We need to cover both the possibilities.

Apply warm compresses or ice both are effective .

Take an antiallergic like benadryl .

Take ibuprofen , which will help minimize the inflammation in the bump.

If its irritating your eye then OTC artificial tears should be used just to protect the eye ball with an extra layer of tears/ fluid .

I hope you feel better soon.

Let me know if you have any further queries.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
