Hello dear Via,

I understand your concern. Before discussing drug allergies, it's a good idea to know the various causes of swollen eyes, namely:

insect bites external eye diseases, such as inflammation of the conjunctiva (conjunctivitis), inflammation of the eyelids (blepharitis) cysts, which are bags filled with fluid or solid masses, such as dermoid cysts, epidermoid cysts, cysts kalazion blockage of the oil glands in the eye, called hordeolum / bintitan impact on the eye allergic reaction or irritation of thyroid disorders, especially tumor hyperthyroidism, whether benign or malignant. The doctor will ask questions related to your mother's health condition, conduct a thorough physical examination, especially focusing on the eyes and surrounding structures, as well as additional tests if needed, such as a sharp vision examination, examination of blood samples, and so on. After determining the underlying cause, the doctor will determine the appropriate treatment steps. While waiting for the doctor's treatment, you should:

cold compress the eyes for 10-15 minutes with a towel soaked in cold water or ice, especially if the swollen eyes are accompanied by itching to give a soothing effect for a while, avoid using cosmetics and contact lenses on the eyes, avoid touching or rubbing the swollen eyes use pillows while sleeping to reduce the risk of fluid buildup around the eyelids avoid direct eye exposure to sunlight If it is proven to be caused by allergies, you can use antihistamine eye drops, In severe cases of allergies, doctors can prescribe oral antihistamines or corticosteroids
