Why are my son's eyes swollen?
Q: I have a 6 months old son. His eyes appear to be swollen. Could you tell me why this is happening? Is it something serious? And what should I do to remove this swelling?
A:You need to give more details on the intensity of the problem. Is it a swelling in the eyes in particular or the surrounding area? Is there any associated eye discharge? Is it more during the morning time and then settles over the day? Is he urinating properly? If he is otherwise well, then you don't have to worry about this. Many babies have swollen eyes. You can get a routine examination of his urine. See if he has any of the above mentioned symptoms and then check with a paediatrician.
