I just had an abscess removed from my eyebrow bone on Wednesday and my eye it’s still very swollen. I have being putting ice every hour for 20 minutes and elevating my head. Is the swelling normal?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is your eye itchy?

Just in the corner of my eye but not where I have the stitches.

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