I had suffered a cut about an inch above and slightly to the right of my right eye 2 days ago I've been treating it it's clean but woke up today and noticed that I'm not going to swallow blood black and blue around the eye I'm applying ice to it how long will this take to pass? Thank you

Doctor's Assistant: When was the last time you had your eyes checked? In general, how has your vision been lately?

My vision is fine everything else is fine again the wound was from a bicycle accident it is clean and healing well however just today a little bit over 40 48 hours later it's starting to swell and I could see a slight black and blue buy me putting ice on it now will this prevent it from getting any worse and if so how long will it take to pass? Thank you

Okay good I just noticed that thank you

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
Injury around the eye can cause accumulation of blood in the loose areolar tissue under the skin.
The swelling gravitates down around the lids.
It will absorb slowly.
You need not worry.
The color change is due to blood pigment.
The swelling will take time to resolve or reabsorb.
Black eyes are treated with ice for the first 24 hours to prevent much swelling.
Application of ice can help.
You can give for 10 minutes at 10 minutes interval several times.
Ice pack or bag of frozen vegetables can be used.
For pain tylenol is good.
Avoid using aspirin or motrin as they have blood thinning properties.
Depending on the severity, it may take 1 week to 10 days for resolution.
Your cut looks deep.
You can apply neosporin cream.
If the wound or the area gets much painful, warm, there can be development of infection.
Oral antibiotic can be needed.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
Your satisfaction is my goal.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
