Painful Swelling In The Left Eyelid That Is Getting Bigger?
Hello, I want to ask .. r nFor several days now my upper left eye is experiencing swelling. At first it hurt when I woke up, over time it became swollen and sore. Until now the swelling is getting bigger so it is hard to see. Why is that, and how to treat it?
Hello, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Swelling and pain in the eyelids can have many causes. The following are some of them:
Allergy or irritation to the eyelids, for example allergies to certain cosmetics or creams used on which lids (contact dermatitis)
Blefaritis, which can occur due to infection of the eyelids, disorders of the oil glands in the eyelids, dry eyes, etc.
Hordeolum or stye
Eyelid trauma or injury, for example from being hit or hit
To be able to find the right treatment for your eye, you must first find out the cause. Therefore, it's a good idea to see an eye doctor for further evaluation, especially because the swelling has made it difficult for you to see.
In the meantime, you can help reduce puffiness by compressing the eyelids with a warm compress. Make sure you do not use cosmetics in the eye area as long as your eyelids are still swollen and avoid touching your eyes or rubbing your eyes.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
