My baby has red eye lids (upper & lower) yet it doesn't seem to bother him. I think the left eye looks slightly swollen however this may be my paranoia! Does this sound like ezcema (eczema) to you, or could it be something else. I'm breast feeding, so could it be related to something I've eaten?
'Puffy eyes can result from a number of causes, including:
* Fluid retention such as due to changes in weather or hormone levels
* Allergies or dermatitis, especially if puffiness is accompanied by redness
* Certain medications
* Kidney or thyroid dysfunction.'
'There are a number of steps you can take to prevent and reduce mild under-eye
* Get enough sleep at night. For most adults, seven to eight hours a night
appears to be the best amount of sleep.
* Sleep with your head slightly raised. Add an extra pillow or prop up the
head of your mattress. This helps prevent fluids from accumulating around your
eyes as you sleep.
* While sitting up, apply a cool tap water compress to the skin under your
eyes for a few minutes. You can also use chilled cucumber slices, a refrigerated
gel mask or chilled, damp tea bags.
* Reduce allergy symptoms. Avoid allergens when possible, and ask your
doctor about over-the-counter or prescription allergy medications.'
