how old is he?

he could have a bad sinus infection or sinus congestion cause this eye pressure

he should use some over the counter cold medications, sudafed and benadryl to help his sinus congestion

he can also use a cool compresses on his closed eye

a cold pack wrapped in a towel which can help decrease swelling and discomfort

he can take some tylenol as well.

He is actually 20
He suffers from Crohn’s and I immediately think it’s that pressure in the eye he can get from that.
He had no symptoms of sinus or allergies before he blew nose. He can only take Tylenol nothing else due to Crohn’s.
I just needed to know if he needed to be seen or head to Emerg room. I’m not an over reacting parent just read what it Coyne be and I don’t play with pressure in eye.
Eye Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

I see

he should feel better.

he doesn't need to go to the ER just for pressure in his head and red eye.

it should get better.

He didn’t listen
There was no pressure in head
It was in the eye
Eye Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

feeling of pressure in the eye can come from pressure of the sinuses around the eye

Eye Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

increased pressure in the eye can be checked for by an eye doctor for glaucoma

but we really don't see increased eye pressure and glaucoma in patients who are 20 years old
