about a week ago, I noticed he had a little scab below his eyebrow on his right eye. I felt it, but it was soft. a few days later, it became infected. It drained, and I cleaned it up. It became infected again 2 nights ago. Yesterday morning, it was swollen, and I drained it trying to relieve the pressure. There isn't so much pressure, and the infection is down (I can tell from the heat of the skin), but the swelling remains and it has become red and shiny from it. His eye is completely swollen shut. I can't make it to the doctor because I have no car (I don't drive, DH takes it to work, and he has inventory to do today, so he won't be home until midnight or after). I won't call 911 because it's not an emergency. I don't even know if the kids have insurance this month(long story about lies and coverage). He's not quite 1 (11 days!), so trying to keep a warm compress on it is pretty much impossible. Any advice?Answer Question

I really wouldn't be messing around with this any longer. I'd really try to get him to the Dr. My daughter had a barley visible pink dot on her eyelid, the next day it was swollen the day after it was swollen shut and huge. I took her to the Dr. she had cellulitis and if I didn't take her to the Dr it was something really bad that could of happened I don't remember what but I was surprised how bad the outcome could of been. She was on a lot of antibiotics. She is good as new now.
