Hello Winda, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com

Scratches on the skin can be a place of entry of infection into the skin. The most common infections from contact with plants are bacterial and fungal infections. If after experiencing a scratch the surrounding area becomes more swollen, painful, looks red, and feels warm, there is a possibility of infection in the scratch wound. To be able to confirm and overcome these problems, you should immediately consult a doctor. The doctor can directly see the bruise in your eye to determine the cause and the best treatment for you. If indeed you have an infection of the skin, you will need therapy in the form of antibiotics.

If you experience visual disturbances due to the scratches you experience (blurred vision or become unable to see) you need to immediately go to the hospital or to an ophthalmologist for further evaluation and management.

In the meantime, you can continue to compress your eye with a cold compress for 15-20 minutes several times a day to help reduce pain and swelling. After 3 days or after the swelling is reduced, you should replace the compress with a warm compress.

That's all the information from me, I hope it's enough to answer
