The Child’s Eyes Are Reddish And Swollen In The Eyelid?
my child is 3 years old initially my eyes were red I already took the doctor already 1 week his eyes have not healed now diarea swollen eyelids ,, eye pain in children how long it heals. what is the danger
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Reddish, swollen eyes in the eyelids can be many possible causes. Depending on the cause, severity, and treatment as what is done to overcome it, this eye pain can obviously have a different healing time. In general, early treatment will certainly make complaints heal faster.
Here are some conditions that often cause a child's red eyes and swell:
Blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelids)
Hordeolum (inflammation of the oil glands in the eyelids, bumps)
Conjunctivitis (clear lining of the eye)
Keratitis (inflammation of the cornea of the eye)
Others, such as preseptal cellulitis, trichhiasis, contact dermatitis, foreign body entry, uveitis, etc.
It should be clarified, after you take your child to the doctor, what kind of treatment does the doctor give? Has your child's condition not improved at all with the doctor's treatment?
If it is true that your child's condition has not improved for more than 3 days, we suggest, bring it back to the doctor, pediatrician, or ophthalmologist so that appropriate treatment is given. Usually, mild conditions are quite relieved by administering local medicines, for example in the form of ointments or eye drops. However, for more serious conditions, other treatments may be needed.
At home, balance your doctor's care with the following steps:
Remind children not to hold their eyes excessively, especially with dirty hands
Keep the child's condition and environment clean, remind children to wash their hands diligently with antiseptic soap and shorten their nails
Do not carelessly give children drugs, ointments or eye drops, and other substances without doctor's advice
Ask your child to rest more, don't overactivate in a dirty, dusty, windy environment, especially in the hot sun
Compress the child's eyelids that are swollen with cold water, raise his head while sleeping so that the swelling is reduced
Hope this helps ...
