Ok before anyone tells me to call the Dr. I did already.
The whole left side is puffed up, I don't understand what happen. Could it just be allergies? What should I do?

my daughters eye was almost shut like that and had kind of puss almost coming out of it I called a nurse/family member and she said it was a cold in her eye I got all the puss I could out and wiped it with saline (little noses is fine). The next morning it was gone! Hope this helps.

It could also be a bug bite. Espically if their is no goo in her eye. I don't know why bugs like to bite by babies eyes.

Thanks Rena! We did go to the Dr. and as I figured they really couldn't come up with the problem being that it had gone down by that time and was completely cleared! but there wasn't goop, it seems it was a minor reaction. Yeah doc said probably allergies and to just keep washing his hands and face when outside or in contact with things. Thanks again...

It could be allergies or it could be pink eye. If there was green goop then I would think it is pink eye and the only way to treat that is to get drops. The other thing to do is to get a cool wet cloth and put it on the baby's eye to help reduce the swelling.

My son got bit by a mosquito close to my son's eye also and it swelled up just like that! It is weird.

Now that Heidi says that, my son has always swollen up a lot with bug bites. Last year he got a TINY one by his eye and his whole eye was swollen.
