Swollen Eyes Accompanied By Cheeks Feel Hot, Sore And Pus?
Good afternoon. I wanted to ask in the morning I woke up, my eyes were swollen on the right, and my cheeks were also red, sore, and had not healed for three days, but even worse my cheeks became festering and my eyelids were also red and it felt sore and sometimes itchy. What do you think this is? And how to cure it? Please help me I’m still in grade 9. I’m afraid this will get worse so I’m embarrassed to go to school. Please help me, thank you

Swollen and painful eyes, accompanied by red cheeks, pain, and even suppuration are most likely to indicate an infection, such as abscesses, folliculitis, cellulitis, blepharintis, and so on. This infection can occur due to bacteria, fungi, viruses, or other microorganisms that enter the skin usually through wounds that are not treated properly (including wounds caused by scratching or insect bites). As a result of infection around the cheeks and eyes, the skin can become inflamed, resulting in swelling, redness, itching, pain, and secreting like pus. This infection is prone to occur in people with poor personal hygiene, weak immune system, to have certain skin conditions, such as atopic dermatitis, rosacea, contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, and so on. In more severe conditions, this infection can cause sufferers to experience fever, chills, and difficulty in activity.
We advise you not to let your complaint drag on. Check with yourself directly to a doctor or dermatologist so that you are given the right treatment. Frequently, mild infections will improve considerably with the administration of several drugs (either topical or oral). However, if the infection is severe enough, other medical procedures can also be performed, for example by surgery. It is also possible, to determine the cause of your complaint, the doctor will recommend that you undergo a blood test or biopsy.
In the meantime, you can first do the following steps:
Rest, if necessary, permission from the school for several days
Take care of your personal hygiene, i.e. by regular bathing, diligent hand washing
Do not hold complaints around the eyes with your bare hands
Clean the pus that comes out with a clean gauze soaked with IV fluids
Do not give any medication to your cheeks and eyes
Compress complaints on your cheeks and eyes with warm water so the inflammation subsides
In order for the pain, heat, and swelling to subside, you can take paracetamol as a first treatment
Hope this helps ...
