What's best for baggy puffy eyes? And anything to give face a glow look my skin is dull

Puffy Eyes: Puffy or swollen eyes can be caused by fluid retention, stress, allergies, hormone changes, and other factors. Other times we get puffy eyes after sleeping. This can be caused by too much sodium in the diet, which causes water retention. Puffy eyes can also be caused by lack of sleep or excessive alcohol intake. http://www.eyehealthweb.com/puffy-eyes/ ...Read more

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

If these strategies are not effective, one should see a doctor in person. ...Read more

I am borderline anaemic and doctor gave me ferrous tablets to take, but have woken up with swollen eyes, lips and face. Is this a normal side effect?

No.: Might want to consider stopping the med. Simple iron supplements are not commonly associated with side effects except constipation. If you are just borderline anemic i would suggest considering increased consumption of good dietary sources of iron. If no symptoms and iron stores look good and you are anemic secondary to menstrual losses, there may not be a good reason to treat anything. ...Read more

Can a child have a strep rash even if she doesn't have a strep throat, no fever, no strawberry tongue but she has swollen eyes and face?

No, but: You cannot have scarletina (strep rash) without having a strep infection somewhere. It could be throat, ear, skin, joint, blood...- does not have to be strep throat.
