What's wrong with his eye?!

Today my DS woke up fine and normal...a couple hours later he came out of DD's room with his eye swollen underneath. He says it doesn't hurt, but it looks horrible and seems to be swelling more and getting more red! The actual eye is fine, not red or running, he kinda looks like he got punched in the eye but niether one will tell me what (if anything) happened....any ideas what it could be?

  • It sounds like a bug bite. Give him a dose of benadryl and put some hydrocortisone on the bump

  • my sons upper eye lid swelled and it was an infection behind his eye. I personally would have it checked out if it doesn't go down by tomorrow.

  • You prob should take him to the doc to get checked, but my baby will rub one eye constantly when he is sleepy and if he does it long enough it gets red and tender but never too swollen
