What do you think happened and how can I treat this??
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Has been like that a few days now - so I tried Allegra and hydrocortisone 1% cream
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
stopped using makeup etc
Eye Doctor: Dr. Chip, Doctor (non-eye specialty) replied 9 months ago

Got it--thanks

Any itching with that?

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
No itching, just a tiny tiny tiny amount of discomfort but nothing else I've noticed
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
I've had Styes before but doesn't feel like one. I used a new brand of makeup and new eye drops the day before it started
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Eye drops are called propylene glycol 0.6%
Eye Doctor: Dr. Chip, Doctor (non-eye specialty) replied 9 months ago

Well it's not a stye problem

It's obviously an allergic type reaction but we may never know what to although the eye drops might be the cause

If Allegra didn't help you need to see your doctor for a short course of oral prednisone for this

But it isn't anything too serious and it may resolve on its own in a few more days

Please let me know if you need any more information
