Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi! I am Dr Saleem. Welcome to JA. I will be answering your query shortly
Do you take anti histamines for this ?
Have you tried steroids?
Does it go away at its own? Does it only happen in spring ?
Anything which triggers it?
There has to be a trigger it could be pollen , food, mites, any cosmetics , medicine , a perfume / spray etc .
So try to make a note of things you do when it starts .
Take Benadryl regularly fora couple of weeks .
If symptoms keep coming back , you may need to see an immunologist for patch test to figure out what exactly triggers it .
For now stick to anti allergics . The next step is oral steroids but you need to see your doctor for that .
Hope you feel better soon.
Sure can see , but for steroids you need to see your GP
Unfortunately we cannot prescribe online as per website's policy .
Yes your eyes are swollen and its likely allergic reaction to some trigger.
Should improve with antiallergics but if it keeps coming back then take it regularly . A short course of steroids might help .
For now just anti histamines should be fine . Take Benadryl or Cetirizine or Loratidine or Claritin
Most welcome .

Good evening, your prior doctor opted out. 2 stars is a negative rating, 3 stars neutral and anything above is positive. Please be aware this means they are not acknowledged for assisting your with your enquiry. If you feel 2 stars is fair then do not change this, however if you got an answer that helped, please consider reconsidering your review, thank you.
I see you are having some difficulty with this, the photo is rather helpful thank you. I would start Fexofenadine for this. You can use a gentle emollient for the skin, La Roche Effaclor do some good sensitive skin options.
Your GP will be open as per normal but likely to be offering telephone triage. Your GP practice should have something on their home page called Online Consultation - this should allow you to message the GP and attached that photo. They would then be able to respond within 48 hours.
Hope this helps, but please do get something stronger to suppress this and remove the swelling. Best of luck
