Customer Question
Hi. I had...

Hi. I had makeup applied 6 weeks ago by an esthetician. She applied strip fake eyelash with glue. Hot glue in my eye and lashes starred sticking together. The eyes felt like they were swelling and I removed all the makeup and lashes within 60 minutes. Eyelids are still swollen every morning upon waking. Eyes feel so dry. Been twice to opthamologist. He thinks nothing serious. Doing blepharitis hygiene routine and preservative free eye drops. Why is this happening still? Right eye is worse and has leathery like swelling above eyelash ALL day. Never goes down.

Doctor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I'm wondering what is really going on and how I can eliminate the swelling, get my eyes back and have no more dry eye. This cannot still be related to the makeup!?

That is the right eye that is giving most trouble
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The swelling is above the lash line and a couple mm thick
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It never goes down.
Eye Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 2 years ago

have you tried a topical steroid?

or oral steroid?

Ask Your Own Eye Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Not oral. Tobradex 4 x per day for 7 days brought down initially but never beyond what you see here
Eye Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 2 years ago

It seems like a prolonged allergic reaction

oral steroids might be needed

I don't know if this is related, but I've been grieving a devastating loss since October and cry about every day
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Could that be causing it
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
did the picture show the swelling?
Eye Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 2 years ago

yes, that absolutely could be playing a role

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Does it seem reasonable that I could have chronic permanent swelling and dry eye?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No doc wants to give me oral steroid or antibiotic. They keep telling me to wait it out! I'm miserable with burning eyes and I stopped wearing makeup.
Eye Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 2 years ago

No, the swelling won't be permanent.

I'm confident on that

Ask Your Own Eye Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
That is reassuring. So is the swelling causing the dry eye? Or the dry eye causing the swelling?
Eye Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 2 years ago

the swelling is causing the dry eye I believe

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Okay. If you were me, how would you proceed. This is week 6
Eye Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 2 years ago

I would follow with a dermatologist and ask for topical or oral steroids
