Can hay fever cause these swollen eye symptoms?

Can hay fever cause these swollen eye symptoms?

Yes: Swollen eyes, sometimes called "allergic shiners" can occur from allergies. The conjunctival membrane that essentially "covers" the white part of the eye and eyelid can get inflammed from allergies. The blood vessels that surround the eye can get dilated from the inflammation and cause swelling as well. This leads to the "bluish" discoloration around the eyes. ...Read more

Talc powder in bab's eyes not sure if he inhaled a little, eye is swollen and he' s been drowsy and a little lethargic all day and has a slight fever.

Talc powder in bab's eyes not sure if he inhaled a little, eye is swollen and he' s been drowsy and a little lethargic all day and has a slight fever.

Doubt connection: Talcum powder is inert and not generally harmful in small quantities such as may happen with inadvertent eye exposure. At most I would put a drop or two of any artificial tear supplement in the eye in question and the natural lacrimation process should rid the external eye of the problem. I would doubt that the fever and lethargy is related to the talc exposure. Contact your Peds MD if persists. ...Read more

See a doctor: It could be a variety of things- she could have had an insect bite or sting to the eyelid causing swelling, she could have an infection (the fever makes that possible as well), or she may be having some allergy problems.

Child woke up with very puffy/swollen eyes slight fever last night and cough, very light rash all over face and torso no other symptoms?

Watchful wait: Sometimes children will wake up in the morning with puffy eyes from a back up of fluid from their nose/sinus area. It sort of pools in that area (if you will). Important considerations would be 1. does it go away over the course of the day? 2. does it worsen over the course of the day? 3. is she she dehydrated? 4. is she urinating as much as she usually does? If not better in 2 days, go see doctor ...Read more
