eye swollen shut

My nephew woke up a couple of weeks ago with his swollen shut.  He has seen a couple of doctors and they still can't figure out what is wrong with it.  They thought it was an infection or a spider bite.  But it wasn't.  They have given him eye cream and cortizone.  They work for a bit but then the eye is swollen shut again at night.  This is really bothering us because nobody can seem to figure it out.  Please help my sister with this.  Thank you

You've indicated that your nephew has seen a couple of doctors, but has he seen a board-certified opthalmologist?  I think that should be your next step.  Find one in your area at

Sorry, this is not the sort of thing we can be helpful with over the internet.
