Can an allergy cause swollen eyes?


Answer by  johnresa (2455)

Yes. Allergies to different foods and also airborne allergies are known to cause red and swollen eyes. You can relieve these symptoms by taking an antihistamine and applying a cool damp towel to the area. That should help take away the majority of the redness and relieve all of the swelling.

Allergies can cause itching, redness, irritation, discharge, and swelling in eyes. This can be from direct contact, or subsequent to other response. Eye drops specifically made for allergies are available over the counter or by prescription. In Addition, try OTC oral allergy medications like Zyrtec.

Yes it can. In fact, my mother is allergic to shellfish and if she passes near the shellfish in the supermarket, she get swollen eyes.

Absolutely. Allergies from even mild to severe can cause itchy, watery eyes, as well as dry and scratchy. And any irritation to the eye can make it swollen or puffy.
