Whats your age and gender? Any other known medical conditions?

Do you have history of any allergies like drug, food, or pollen allergy?

Any drugs you take regularly? Anything in your immediate surroundings that seems to trigger this? When you get swollen eyes , do you also have other symptoms like runny nose, sneezing, breathing issues or tears from eyes?

Well this seems allergic , have you tried any antihistamines like benadryl ? Have you ever been to an allergist?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I get allergy shots for dog/seasonal allergies. Normally I sneeze and get itchy eyes. This is like nothing I've ever had
Eye Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 7 months ago

So you have never had such swollen eyes before? This is allergic . Ylu need to take benadryl immediately and if it doesnt improve you need to visit ER for a steroid shot or an injectible antihistamine .

If its happening too frequently then a few tests should be run including Complete blood count for eosinophils.

IgE levels.

Serum tryptase levels.

Autoimmune profile ( if you have other symptoms like joint aches, rash, dry mouth, hair loss etc)
