Yes. Swollen eyes, sometimes called "allergic shiners" can occur from allergies. The conjunctival membrane that essentially "covers" the white part of the eye and eyelid can get inflammed from allergies. The blood vessels that surround the eye can get dilated from the inflammation and cause swelling as well. This leads to the "bluish" discoloration around the eyes.
Yes. Allergic conjunctivitis commonly causes redness, watering, itching and mildly swollen and mildly red eyelids. Over the counter treatments such as an antihistamine or an allergy eye drops such as zaditor (ketotifen) may provide relieve, and cool compresses are also helpful. If symtpoms not relieve, or if vision affected, get it checked out.
Talc powder in bab's eyes not sure if he inhaled a little, eye is swollen and he' s been drowsy and a little lethargic all day and has a slight fever.
Doubt connection. Talcum powder is inert and not generally harmful in small quantities such as may happen with inadvertent eye exposure. At most I would put a drop or two of any artificial tear supplement in the eye in question and the natural lacrimation process should rid the external eye of the problem. I would doubt that the fever and lethargy is related to the talc exposure. Contact your Peds MD if persists. Read more...
