SWELLING OF EYELIDS
Swollen eyelids are usually due to an allergic reaction, for example to an insect bite. Other causes include infection, excessive rubbing of the eyes or crying. If your child is unwell, or the swelling does not settle down within a day despite applying a cold compress such as an ice pack to the area, it is advisable to see your doctor.
The sensitive tissues around the eye are easily damaged by the child bumping into something or being hit. This can result in considerable bleeding under the skin, which causes swelling and bruising. This is commonly known as a ‘black eye’. If your child has a black eye, placing an ice pack over it can help to reduce the swelling. (This is the logic behind putting a steak on a black eye — it is the cold that helps, not the steak!)
If your child complains of blurred or double vision, or has difficulty in seeing, or if his eye looks strange to you, seek medical advice immediately.
