Hello Rosdian Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Swollen eyes can be caused by various possibilities, including such as:
If the eye is swollen from contact with an object, it can occur due to irritation. Eye irritation can be triggered by a number of other factors such as allergies, cigarette smoke, dust, contact lenses, wood chips, trauma or blunt injuries such as impact or blow, to infection. And irritation to the eye often causes conjunctivitis, where conjunctivitis is inflammation of the conjunctiva (the membrane that protects the eye).
Symptoms of eye irritation usually differ depending on the cause or the trigger, but symptoms that are common in conjunctivitis such as red eyes, swelling, become more runny and itchy.
Eye irritation, of course, should not be left alone, the treatment that can be done is by:
Avoiding triggering factors. For example when playing children should be supervised by an adult, and avoid objects that can cause injury.
Also always wash the child's hands, to avoid infection if the child rubs his eyes with his hands. But avoid rubbing or scratching the eyes of the child, by diverting it.
Clean the eyes that are irritated several times a day for example with a clean tissue or cloth, do not use the same tissue or cloth for both eyes. Then immediately wash your hands and dispose of the tissue that has been used
To reduce irritation and signs of inflammation, when the child sleeps, for example, compress the eyes with a soft cloth or cotton that has been soaked in cold water then squeezed and compressed within a few minutes for example 5 minutes. Then repeat the compress, using a new cotton or cloth.
Avoid using eye drops in children before consulting a doctor
Because your child is not able to explain the feeling of complaints, you need to be aware of some symptoms such as:
The appearance of yellowish or greenish eye discharge or pus found in the eyes of infants.
Swollen eyelids are accompanied by white eye discharge, and the whites of the eyes turn red, this can be a sign of infection
If the child tears in excess or in an unnatural amount
If the child seems to rub his eyes often with his hands
If the child has difficulty opening his eyes
So, if you find signs of these symptoms you should consult an ophthalmologist for further examination and treatment.
