Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
I understand your concern, swollen eyes in children, especially in toddlers, can make children become fussy.
The following are the things that cause swelling in children, including:
allergies: Allergies are known to cause various problems, one of which is swollen eyes. Some causes of allergies include: cigarette smoke, dust, animal hair and histamine. Histamine is a chemical produced by body cells when experiencing an allergic reaction or infection. infection: where the eyes are swollen and red conjunctivitis: inflammation of the membrane lining the surface of the eyeball and inner eyelid (conjunctival eye). Conjunctivitis itself will cause red eyes, swollen eyes in children, itchy eyes, until watery eyes kalazion: small lumps that appear on the eyelids due to blockages of the oil and the glands of the meibom. injury: Any trauma to the dead area such as being hit, falling, hit by a blunt object, which ultimately causes tearing in the eyelids can trigger inflammation and ultimately make the eyes become swollen. if you have consulted a doctor and given antibiotics means that it might be caused by a bacterial infection, sometimes healing takes time, not there we use it to get well there, usually the doctor will provide treatment about 3-5 days so you have to wait for that time, if not there is an improvement you can come back to the doctor to do a deeper treatment, you should always use drugs both external and internal medicine correctly and appropriately, if giving eye ointment to children, keep our hands clean, wash your hands first with water flow and use soap. if you've done it right, but the child's eyes are getting worse you can immediately come back to the doctor who is treating your child, it could be caused by a child allergic to the drug.
There are several things you can do to relieve swollen eyes in children
compress swollen eye children with cold water covered with a clean and soft cloth always wash your hands when giving treatment to children, both when giving medication and after washing hands must not let the child rub the eyes yes hurt avoid children contact with sick people should children rest at home and avoid going out of the house first, besides treatment, bun give the child lots of fluids such as breast milk. Thus the info I can give
hopefully can help the mother
