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

Two weeks ago i had swelling of the eyelid. it went away 2-3 days later. Now the corner of my eye Keeps scabbing after each time Washing my face. Why!

One eyelid or two?: Unilateral swelling needs to be investigated. Look for underlying symptoms. Has your thyroid been checked?

They will view it under a slit lamp microscopy and diagnose it properly for treatment. ...Read more
