It’s not the nicest feeling to wake up and not being able to open you eyes properly and I am not even talking about the reflection in the mirror! What do you do then? Panic, don’t really know what to do… and it’s too early to book an appointment with a doctor!
The first aid for a swollen eyelid – chamomile compress. Just pour hot water over a handful of dried chamomile in a mug. Cover it, brew it for about 10 minutes and sieve it. Use a little piece of wool cotton to gently apply the brew onto your eye lid and hold it for a few minutes. The chamomile brew works best when it’s still warm. You will feel relief immediately. Then get ready for an appointment with a doctor.
The doctor advised me to wet a clean towel in hot water and keep it pressed down to my eye 4 times a day and then prescribed some medicine.
The eyelid is still swollen, but I expect a significant improvement tomorrow. Please share your advice if you experienced something like this!
