Customer Question
Thanks, on Wednesday...

Thanks, on Wednesday I experienced swelling,pain and redness on my right eyelid.Today both eyes are swollen,painful,and red; also now it is under my eyes and swollen from bridge of nose to corner of eyes. The whole area is swollen. ..I have taken benadryl and used eyedrops ,even put baby shampoo on them as advised in an article I read .I t is snowing and I can't get out ,I have no idea what is wrong or what to do . Thanks, Deborah

Doctor's Assistant: When did you start using Benadryl? How severe were any side effects?

I use benadryl daily ,never had any side effects with it

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about the swelling?

No

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

I ask my pharmacist and they suggested eyedrops, he thought maybe blepharitis but was not sure I don't think so

it could be blepharitis

or from bad spring allergies causing infammation

you may need to take allergy pills like allegra and steroid nasal sprays and stronger prescription steroid eye drops

you should see a doctor to get your eyes examined.

No thanks don't charge me again
Eye Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 29 days ago

Blepharitis can cause inflamed eyelids, eye burning and dryness, caused by blocked oil glands under the eyelid.
