What Diseases Cause Long Right Swollen Eyelids In 5-year-old Children?
During the afternoon of the doctor, I have a child aged 5 years, the right eyelid is swollen for a long time, but I noticed getting bigger, but there was no change in skin color in the eye area, the child did not feel sick or uncomfortable, I want to ask, what is that eye disease, how overcome it, thank you doctor
Hello, good afternoon Grace
Complaints of a lump on one eyelid that is not accompanied by pain and does not experience changes in skin color can be caused by:
kalazion, which is a lump on the eyelid due to blocked oil glands in the eyelid. hordeolum (bintitan) that lasts a long history of injury to one eye and so on.
To ascertain what diseases your child is experiencing, it requires a direct examination, because the eye diseases mentioned above have their respective characteristics which can only be distinguished if seen directly. Therefore we recommend that you see your child to an ophthalmologist. It is hoped that you will not delay the examination, ma'am, given that your child has been experiencing this for a long time. While waiting for the doctor's schedule, tell the child not to hold or squeeze the eye so that the swelling does not get bigger, ok, ma'am.
That's all, hope that helps, ma'am ...
