Hello Ms. Ade
The danger of swelling in the eyes depends on the root cause of the symptoms, such as swollen eyes caused by allergic reactions can be harmless but if the allergic reaction is severe it can also cause shock, then there is also a swollen eye that caused by a viral infection, in general, symptoms of swollen eyes due to viruses are quite mild and can heal by itself easily, but there are also swollen eyes caused by a bacterial infection that is more severe marked by the production of more spots than the infection caused by viruses, Swollen eyes caused by bacterial infections can cause vision problems if left unchecked.
In addition, swollen eyes can also be caused by crying, trauma (due to rubbing eyes or striking). So Mrs. Ade should take the child to the pediatrician so that further evaluation can be done on her condition, because it is difficult to determine the root cause of problems from the swollen eye that is being experienced by your child without doing a previous examination, as for some things that Mrs. Ade can try to do is maintain the cleanliness of children and the home environment, to minimize exposure to viruses, bacteria, and dust. Air conditioning and fans should not lead directly to the face and body of the child, and keep sharp and hard objects so as not to cause injury to his eyes, also make sure that the nails are not long.
