Dear customer,

how long is your daughter having such symptoms?
any difficulty in breathing or red eyes?
did you consult a doctor yet?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
she is not having any trouble breathing, her eyes swelled suddenly at my son's track meet. It is really windy. We tried the doctor but are waiting to hear back. Benadryl is taking down the swelling quite a bit, but I am curious as to what could have caused it. Is it possible that there is enough pollen in the air to cause a sudden flare up. No evidence of a bite, no different foods, sitting on metal bleachers, no contact with anything different other than whatever is in the air.

Dear customer,

Thank you for information,

The allergan particles like pollens, dust, soap, detergent may cause the symptoms of allergy and cause the swelling in eyes, redness.

It can be treated with the use of antihistamine drugs like benadryl, cetrizine, to control the symptoms.The removal and avoidance of the offending allergan is the cure.
