Swelling around eyes: Swelling around eyes can be due to many issue: clogged eyelash glands (meibomian glands); allergies; excess salt (be sure kidney function is normal); genetics (got it from mom or dad); excess rubbing (shiners); aging changes. Cold ice packs might help decrease swelling by constricting blood vessels. See an eyemd if no improvement. See your md about night sweats if persistent as can be a concern.
