Toddlers & Preschoolers Toddlers & Preschoolers
My 2 yr old son came to me today, and we were talkin and I looked at his eye and it was all puffy. I asked him if he hit his head and his reply " no mom " however as the day went on it started swelling more, so I called the on call nurse and she told me that he probably just side swiped the table or something and that he just didn't realize it. Well my son is the type that if he hit his head / eye brow area that hard for it to swell then he would have been screaming. The eye is not bruised, nor does it look like a bug bite and its huge definitely bigger around than a quarter. The nurse just told me to watch it. I'm just curious. Anybody with comments ?

Dd had the exact same thing. Pic looks identical! Even looked all purple and bruised and was just the one eye. I was all freaked out and called my sister who runs an opthalmology office. She told me to give her benadryl and give it a day or two because it was just an allergic reaction - probably to a bug bite I just couldn't see. She was right. It cleared up just fine but it took a good day.

Yes, we went to the doctor today and it was only a bug bite, it swelled up like it did because the skin around the eye is loose. However the swelling went down during today and the spot where he was bite was able to be felt/seen. The doctor prescribed him benadryl and said that he would be just fine. (:

I am so glad that it wasn't anything serious.
