My husband has this. He washes his eyes (not the eyeball) with johnson's baby shampoo everyday, that keeps it from coming back.

I had it but not as bad you describe. I wear contact lenses and my eyes are changing because I'm getting older (what my eye doc told me)

He ended up giving me drops to put in my eyes and this antibiotic that I would rub on my lids twice a day. He also told me to put warm compresses 3 times a day and take a break from wearing my contact lenses for two weeks. Then I had to wash my upper and lower lids with Johnson's Baby Shampoo (like someone else here said)

My doc couldn't tell me what caused it though.

I hope it goes away real soon girlie.. I often have problems with my eyes itching but i never had this kinda problem. My eyes were so bad at one point last year that the opthamologist thought my tear ducts were blocked so she stuck needles in my eyes to unblock them & then afterwards she said "oh they werent blocked".. God i almost strangled her. Sorry for rambling!

Get well soon


I had that sometimes, but not because of allergic reaction or something; I think it's because sometimes I accidentally saw a man pee in the street lol.

It was a myth in Indonesia, if you saw a man having a pee in the street, you'll get your eye lids swell for few days after LOL.

I usually just leave it , try not to touch or scratch it.

Anyway sorry for OOT (out of topic)

thanks for help my luffs. i went to the dr today its gotten TONS better. its not a stap infection he determined its from my sinus infection~everything else was inflamed and it had no where else to go so it went to my eyes. he told me to was my eyes with baby shampoo a few times a day and use cetaphil for the dryness. and it should be cleared up ina few days, a week the most. i just wanna wear make up!
