Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Do you mean swollen eyes are swollen eyelids? Complaints of swelling of the eyelid can be caused by several possibilities, which often include:
Anterior blepharitis, which is inflammation of the eyelids, associated with bacterial infection of Staphylococcus aureus, complaints of redness of the eyelids, dry eyes, can be found sores on the edges of the eyelids, eyelashes can fall out, and dilation of blood vessels
Hordeolum, which is a lump due to infection of one or more oil glands in the eyelid, complaints in the form of swelling, redness, heat sensation and pain in the lump, usually occurs in one eye
Kalazion, which is inflammation of the eyelids due to oil gland obstruction, symptoms in the form of lumps, no pain, palpable, can disappear on its own in a few weeks without therapy
If the complaint is so disturbing, you are advised to consult a doctor or ophthalmologist directly so that it can be evaluated and handled appropriately. As a suggestion, you should do the following steps:
Apply eye warm compresses for 5-10 minutes 2-3 times per day
Maintain eye hygiene by minimizing the use of cosmetics around the eyes for a while
Avoid eye rubbing habits
Avoid using any eye drops / ointment without the advice of a doctor who treats you directly
Avoid overexposure to sunlight, dust and pollution; for example by using hats, sunglasses, and masks when you are outdoors
If you feel pain, use over-the-counter pain relievers (for example: paracetamol) at a dosage following the rules of use stated on the packaging of the drug
