How can I cure red, itchy, swollen, slightly bumpy eyelids/area around eye?

How can I cure red, itchy, swollen, slightly bumpy eyelids/area around eye?

Eyedrops: Check to see if you are using a new skin product, as this can cause a reaction like this. If this has just popped up spontaneously, you can try using artificial tears 4x/day in both eyes. If that doesn't work, there is a OTC drop: 'Zatidor', which works well. You can also use Benadryl, but this will cause drowsiness. If these therapies do not work, consider seeing an eye doctor. ...Read more

Likely: coincidental. Eye issues are not typically related to the spine at all. There can be occasional pain at site of the facet blocks when the anesthetic wears off. Would recommend ice the back area. See your PCP regarding the eye lid swelling. ...Read more

Periorbital swelling: While it's reassuring that there is no pain, it is still concerning for periorbital cellulitis - an infection of the tissue around the eye. This needs to be evaluated and likely need antibiotics. Get her into her pediatrician ASAP. If her doc doesn't have weekend hours then go to an urgent care or ED for evaluation. ...Read more

So my under eyelid is red and swollen, and it's a little itchy, i don't have insurance so i can't go see a doctor i think it's pink eye what can I do?

Hot compresses: Most of the time pink eye causes the eyeball to be red. If this only involves the eyelid, it is either a stye or a mild skin infection. It is more likely a stye if there is a sore spot on the lid. If so, use hot compresses at least 3 times per day. Keep reheating the washcloth so you get 5-10 minutes of heat every time. ...Read more

2days ago I woke up with a bump on lower lid and redness on eyelid. Now my under eye is swollen puffy and red. Classic stye progression?

Yes: Given the timing of the symptoms, most likely it is a stye and not a chalazion. Continue using wash compresses as much as possible. It the pain or swelling worsens, then a topical or oral antibiotic may be required. ...Read more
