Hi! Thanks for your question. I'm Dr. Bridget.

There are no OTC creams for the eye for swelling, but the following will help tremendously in addition to your prednisone:

An antihistamine eye drop like Visine A allergy relief eye drops 2 drops four times a day will help with swelling form the eye lash extension.

You can also take Naproxen (Aleve) OTC 1 tablet every 12 hours and a cold compress four times day will also help bring down inflammation.

You should start to notice improvement within just a day or two of using this regimen.

Please feel free to ask any further questions. I am happy to help!

If you're all done for now, a positive rating is very much appreciated. Thank you!
