Banged my eye, had to have gape glued shut. A day later new I have a persistent headache, black eye, upper swelling, tender. Could it be broken?

Orbital fracture...: Can only be ruled out in person w/ exam & x-ray. Depakote can cause heavy bleeding/bruising. Would get CT/MRI of eye region itself if, due to soft tissue swelling/bruising, it seems to impinge on nerves & muscles required for eye movement. Damage to the eye carries a significant infectious risk as well since the optic nerve/vascular complex perforates the skull and leads right into brain tissue. ...Read more

Is it the eye, or: The eyelid? If it's the eyelid, it sounds like it could be a stye or chalazion. These are blocked glands in the eyelid. The treatment is ibuprofen or acetaminophen and warm compresses. If it is the eye, not the lid, please see her pediatrician or eye doctor. If it doesn't get better with the treatment I mentioned, please have her examined. ...Read more

Sty, blepharitis: Your upper eyelid swelling may be due to inflammation of the eyelid marginal oil glands and skin at the base of the eyelashes. Any reddish pimple-like swelling could also be a sty, a localized infection of an oil gland. Try moderately hot moist compresses 2 to 4 times/day and apply for 10', followed by cleaning the eyelid lashes with SteriLid eye pad link: https://youtu. Be/eIruHhmm31Y ...Read more

Been having dry, itch eyes. Now have sore lower lid in corner. Also have swelling in nose close to top. No other symptoms beside post nasal drip.

Allergy?: I guess the sequence of events would be that you do have hay fever and by scratching or rubbing the itchy eyes you have introduced an infection to the lower lids. If I were correct, then you need to see your doctor and get this taken care of. Usually a nasal steroid would work but the eye infection requires a Rx antibiotic drop. ...Read more

Hello my eyelid keeps swelling up when I wake up in the morning. My eye lid does go down but instead I have been having my eyelid going red and sore?

Allergies?: Swollen eyelids can be due to allergies. Have you changed soaps, lotions, room sprays or candles, detergents or fabric softeners? Is the swelling in both eyes or just one? Try an antihistamine, like diphenhyrdramine or Naphcon-A allergy eye drops, to see if the swelling goes away. If so, stop the new product. If not, it might be infection and you need to get seen soon. ...Read more
