Red Swelling On Baby’s Lids?
Doctor’s night. R n r nIntroduce me Ria. My son is 7.5 months old. This morning after waking up suddenly his eyelids were red. It’s a little swollen but after I checked, there were no ants or mosquito bites. What is the cause? Then how do you deal with it so that the flushing is gone? Thank you Doctor. R n r nGreetings, r nRia
Hello Ria, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
Red, swollen lids may be due to animal or insect bites, but it can also be caused by:
Hordeolum or stye is a glandular infection in the eyelid of Chalazion, which is an oil gland in the eyelid that is blocked. Allergy Insect bite Blepharitis, an inflammation of the edge of the eyelid Conjunctivitis, is an inflammation of the conjunctiva of the eye. You should check with an ophthalmologist or pediatrician, so that an examination can be done so that the cause can be found.
Some things you can do at home
Warm water compress. Avoid rubbing the eyes. Wash your hands. Avoid using eye drops or ointments carelessly apart from a doctor's prescription. Thank you, hope it is useful. Dr. Nurmarwiyah
