My husband is facing from eye problem. His lower eye is swelling from past 1 week.Local doctors have diagnosed it to be allergy. The medicines prescribed are : Ocupol & Xyzal. When he takes the Xyzal Medicine alone, he gets relief, but it happens again after some days. And after taking both of these together we see no cure at all.
Lid swelling can manifest as allergy, particularly if there was a new eyedrop or ointment applied to that area recently. However, one alternate cause that needs to be ruled out is a soft tissue infection (cellulitis), in which case oral antibiotics would need to be initiated for coverage. If there is any tenderness, yellow/green discharge, or any redness, pain, or decreased vision in the eye itself, I would consider an alternate diagnosis and treatment and return to your eye care specialist.
