Something bit me on my eye lid yesterday when I was mowing the lawn and of course, my eye lid and that area is swollen.
I really don't want to go back to work tomorrow looking like someone punched me in the eye and I was wondering if there was anything I could do to get the swelling down.

And take a Benadryl, just in case the swelling is an allergic reaction.

You can use a damp tea bag as a compress. That usually reduces swelling. Ditto on the Benadryl.

Since I don't have any further advice as already said above:





Name that guy's name and don't tell stories ...

Hydrocortisone cream can help too, but be careful if it's around your eye, dunno if that's safe.

Thanks guys. I'll try the ice and tea bags for starters.


Found another bite and swollen area on the other side of my face, close to my hair line.

Grrrrrrrrrr!!!!
