The Flu Is Accompanied By Swollen Eyelids?
Good afternoon, I want to ask, what is the flu along with the swollen eyelids?
Hello اندي يوغشطيرء,
The flu is often caused by a viral infection, although sometimes it can also be caused by a bacterial infection, allergic (allergic rhinitis), non-allergic rhinitis, and can be compounded by sinusitis and nasal polyps. There is a channel between the nose and the tear glands, the nasolacrimal duct, so when a cold occurs it can sometimes be accompanied by inflammation of the eye.
However, swollen eyelids can also not be associated with the flu that is being experienced. Swollen eyelids can also be caused by several other conditions such as blepharitis, conjunctivitis, insect bites, allergic reactions, contact dermatitis, ectropion, and entropion.
Do you experience other complaints with your eyes? To ascertain the cause requires a direct examination by a doctor. In the meantime, you can do the following tips first:
Get enough rest
Drink a lot of water
Eat healthy and nutritious foods
Use a humidifier if necessary
Warm compresses on the eyes
Use eye drops filled with artificial tears if it feels uncomfortable
Don't rub your eyes
Avoid exposure to dust and smoke
If within 3 days there has been no improvement, or you feel uncomfortable in your eyes, you should consult a doctor directly so that further tests can be done to ascertain your condition so that you can get more appropriate treatment.
Hope it helps you,
