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, (diphenhydramine) but this will cause drowsiness. If these therapies do not work, consider seeing an eye doctor. 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

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

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?

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

Allergy: This appears to be an allergic reaction to something that comes in contact with your eye area (? eye glasses, cosmetics, hair spray). Don't apply any cortisone type cream as only special prescription ophthalmic preparations should be used in those areas in case the cream leaks into the eye. It may be best for you to consult an ophthalmologist for diagnosis and treatment. Read more
