Why does my baby have black and blue eyelids?

Why does my baby have black and blue eyelids?

Childbirth?: If you are referring to bruising around the eyes at the time of childbirth, this is very common. With a normal delivery, it can still be somewhat traumatic to the baby, and bruising can be seen around the eyes. Usually there is no injury.

I fell and hip my forehead 3 days ago, its black and blue and my eyelids are red, im not having symptoms of a concussion, do I need to get checked?

Possibly: Blood vessels around the eye are @ risk for rupture w/ falls or other injuries especially as we get older and the vessels are more 'friable' (more easily injured from because they are less resilient). Probably a good idea to be. ' checked ' by your pcp to make sure no bony injury or other has occurred... Best of luck! ...Read more

4-5 days with a black and blue eye. Still black n a bit swollen above my eye and by the side of my nose. Should I continue putting ice at this point?

No: The active bleeding has stopped so ice, at t his point, will not do any further good. The blood that's already seeped into the tissues will spread out, decay (change color), and be resorbed (disappear) but it will take time. ...Read more

5 days with black and blue eye. Saw er doc on day 3-4. Does vitamin c help heal faster? Make color/swelling go away faster?

Yes, along with...: While I'm unaware of formal research, Vitamin C with bioflavonoids is widely considered to help bruises heal faster. You should also eat fruits, esp. Blueberries and other berries. I also highly recommend Arnica as a cream, as well as internally as homeopathic Arnica 12c 2-3 pellets 2-3x/day (available at health food stores).For more ideas see http://www. Organicnutrition.

What do you suggest if my sclera is black and my eye color is blue I was born with it. Am I normal?

Well, 1st, exam: It's a good idea to have an ophthalmologist examine your eyes to reassure it's a benign pigment change.
