What Causes Swelling Of The Red Eyelids And Facial Skin?
Mat afternoon dr, sorry to bother, I want to ask, my child is 3 years old, but this morning suddenly woke up, his face was all red, like high heat, and then his eyelids were swollen and the bottom of his eyes were also swollen … That’s because of what, Dr. I’m really scared … The solution is how
Hello Avhe, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Previously need to be confirmed in advance a number of things, whether swelling occurs in both eyes or in one eye only? Has your child experienced any trauma or injury to his eyes before? Is there redness on the whites of his eyes or vision problems? Are there reddish rashes on other areas of the body too? Is there a history of eating certain foods (which are rarely eaten) before, or a history of taking certain medications beforehand?
If swelling occurs in one eye only, then the possible cause is certain pathology in the eye, for example injury / history of trauma to the eye, insect bites on the eyelid, inflammation of the eyelid (blepharitis), infection of the tissue around the eye (periorbital cellulitis or orbital cellulitis), infection of the inside of the eye (endophthalmitis), nodules (hordeolum), etc. If the swelling occurs in one eye, you should immediately bring your child to the eye doctor so that further evaluation and management can be done.
If swelling occurs in both eyes, then the possible cause is an allergic reaction. Allergies can be caused by food, drugs, or there are also allergens in the air (for example if the child has an allergy to flower pollen / pollen, animal dandruff, mold spores, etc.). If the swelling occurs in both eyes, then you should immediately take your child to the pediatrician so that further evaluation and management can be done.
In the meantime, you can compress the swollen eye of a child with cold compresses to reduce the swelling.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
