  • WOW!!! I just saw those words and remembered well. My son was around 8 or 9 when he woke up one morning and his eye looked a little swollen. I thought maybe he was just groggy so I watched him closely. I don't remember exactly how fast, but it quickly began to swell to the point that he almost could not open it any longer. Maybe a few hours? Anyway, we took him to the doctor and they said that he had PC ( im not going to try to spell that) He was given antibiotics. Never had a problem again.
