Cetirizine – how much is too much? – Garg – 2018 – Journal of Pharmacy Practice and Research


Cetirizine hydrochloride is a selective second generation histamine h2 receptor inhibitor, widely used as an antihistamine in adult and paediatric populations. It has a rapid onset and a long duration of action, acting within 60 min and can be used up to twice a day.1 It has reduced central nervous system (CNS) penetration as compared to first generation antihistamines and thereby does not to the same extent impair the CNS function at therapeutic doses.2

Oculogyric crisis, a neurologic impairment, defined by bilateral dystonic reactions, is a rare side effect of cetirizine. Dystonia and oculogyric crisis may be caused due to the blockage of dopamine receptors in the CNS leading to a dopaminergic-cholinergic disproportion.3 Here we will present a case study of a child who developed a dystonic reaction to cetirizine.

Case Report

A 7-year-old boy presented to the paediatric emergency department with an eczema exacerbation. He had a background of difficult to treat atopic dermatitis, asthma and multiple food allergies. The current eczema flare began a week earlier and had worsened over 3 days prior to hospital presentation. His mother also noted some new-onset uncharacteristic twitching and sucking movements in his cheeks in the previous 48 h. He had woken up overnight screaming and complaining of neck pain.

On examination he had lichenified, erythematous, excoriated dermatitis over his forehead, neck and flexor surfaces of upper and lower limbs. He was experiencing intermittent lip smacking, lip puckering, intermittent protruding of the tongue (lingual protrusion dystonia) and involuntary repetitive leg movements. He also had neck stiffness and tachycardia. His neurological examination was otherwise normal. Liver function, electrolytes, creatinine and complete blood picture were within normal limits.

There was no significant medical history. No plausible neurological explanation for the symptoms could be identified.

Medication history revealed regular use of hydrocortisone 1%, triamcinolone 0.02% and Epaderm® ointments. Cetirizine 5 mg was being used regularly every morning, occasionally twice a day, long term for several years as part of itch management by his parents. He had received three doses of 5 mg the night before, along with a dose of prednisolone liquid. He was not taking any neuroleptic drugs.

The Australian Medicines Handbook Children’s Dosing Companion recommends cetirizine dose as 5 mg twice daily, or 10 mg once daily for children 6–12 years old. There are no clear recommendations for its long-term use or a maximum time frame of use in one go. From practice experience, some patients with chronic conditions do take cetirizine for prolonged periods of time. The medicine is generally considered safe and problem-free.

The dystonic reaction was consistent with tardive dyskinesia and thought to be caused by an overuse of cetirizine. On assessment on a Naranjo scale, a score of six was obtained, placing the likelihood of the reaction due to cetirizine in the ‘probable’ category. The child was not rechallenged or any blood levels measured to make it a definite diagnosis.

Cetirizine was ceased immediately and his parents were advised to avoid it in the future. Intermittent use of a newer oral antihistamine, desloratadine, was recommended as an alternative.

The patient was discharged with oral antibiotics, topical corticosteroids, wet wraps and emollients for the management of eczema and confirmed secondary Staphylococcus aureus infection.


Antihistaminic drugs are generally not expected to cause severe adverse reactions. Many antihistamines are available over the counter, and some are now available from supermarkets, adding to their perception as harmless medications by the public. Therapeutic ingestions of cough and cold preparations containing varying amounts of antihistamines, decongestants, expectorants and pain medications have been associated with dystonic reactions in children. 4, 5 Studies have established cetirizine as causing oculogyric reactions, particularly in children in doses ranging from 5 to 10 mg, with symptoms commencing 3 to 184 days after commencement of treatment.3, 4 Several case reports of cetirizine-induced dystonic reactions have been reported.5-8 The US Food and Drug Administration has included cetirizine on its ‘drugs to watch list for oculogyric crisis’.9 Other reports have listed cetirizine as causing agitation, aggression, headaches and skin eruptions.10 A case of tardive dystonia induced by prolonged use (7 years) of cetirizine at therapeutic doses has been reported.11

Two factors may have contributed to the reaction in our case study: long-term use and excessive dosage. Cetirizine and other non-sedating antihistamines are thought to have a wide therapeutic range. In chronic urticaria guidelines, up to four times the standard dosing is recommended for patients whose symptoms are refractory to treatment with standard or double-doses. 12 Second generation antihistamines such as cetirizine are thought to be generally well tolerated with minimal sedation as they cross the blood-brain barrier to a lesser extent compared to first generation antihistamines. However, this crossing is not insignificant. In one adult study, a dose of 20 mg cetirizine was shown to occupy 17–40% of the h2 receptors in the brain depending on receptor location, suggesting that at high doses, cetirizine crosses the blood-brain barrier and may lead to more psychoactive effects.13

This case reinforces that although cetirizine is widely considered ‘safe’ and is an easily accessible and commonly used drug for allergic disorders, it has a potential to cause extrapyramidal side effects, even at recommended doses. Children are generally more at risk of developing these side effects than the adult population. We recommend increased awareness of these reactions for health professionals prescribing cetirizine, particularly for extended periods and in high doses.

Existing antihistamine drugs show effectiveness against COVID-19 virus in cell testing

Three common antihistamine medications have been found in preliminary tests to inhibit infection of cells by the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, University of Florida Health researchers have found.

Their findings, based on laboratory tests of cells and a detailed analysis of nearly a quarter-million California patients’ medical records, are published today in the journal Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications. The data may support the launch of a randomized, controlled clinical trial to determine whether the specific antihistamines can treat or even prevent COVID-19 in humans, the researchers said.

Earlier this year, Leah Reznikov, Ph.D., an assistant professor of physiological sciences in the UF College of Veterinary Medicine and the study’s principal investigator on the study, began collaborating with David A. Ostrov, Ph.D., an immunologist and associate professor in the UF College of Medicine’s department of pathology, immunology and laboratory medicine. They and other colleagues set out to identify approved drugs that can interfere with the way the SARS-CoV-2 virus binds to cells. Blocking that connection essentially locks a cellular doorway that inhibits the virus’s transmission to the respiratory system.

“We discovered epidemiological data showing that the usage of specific drugs was associated with a reduced likelihood of testing positive for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. We then found that these specific drugs exhibited direct antiviral activity against SARS-CoV-2 in the lab,” Ostrov said.

While there is an association between the medications and infection rates, the researchers stressed there is much more to be learned and no cause and effect has been formally established.

“The fact that these drugs actually inhibit the virus in the lab does not necessarily mean that they will inhibit it actively in people — but they might,” Ostrov said.

To establish their findings, the collaborators focused on angiotensin-converting enzyme-2, or ACE2, a “gateway” protein the virus uses to invade human cells. Working with a colleague at the University of California San Francisco, they analyzed medical records of nearly a quarter million California patients. People age 61 and older who had used certain antihistamines were less likely to test positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus than those who did not take the medications, the researchers found.

Next, the researchers tested this group of antihistamines for their ability to inhibit the coronavirus in a combination of human and primate cells. Three of the drugs — hydroxyzine, diphenhydramine and azelastine — showed direct, statistically significant antiviral effects on the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Hydroxyzine, sold as Atarax, and the nasal spray azelastine are prescription medications while diphenhydramine is sold over-the-counter as Benadryl, a treatment for cold and allergy symptoms.

The drugs were tested at different concentrations to measure how much is required to inhibit the virus.

While the findings are encouraging, Ostrov cautions against self-medicating with antihistamines as a COVID-19 prevention or treatment. So-called “off-label” use of medications should only take place after a detailed consultation with a physician, he said.

Among the three medications, azelastine was found to inhibit the SARS-CoV-2 virus at a dose that was smaller than the amount prescribed as a nasal spray. The other two antihistamines required higher drug concentrations than currently recommended dosing levels to achieve antiviral activity in cells. That doesn’t make diphenhydramine any less of a potential COVID-19 therapy for now, especially considering its ubiquity and over-the-counter status, Ostrov said. Clinical trials will be necessary to establish the drugs’ effectiveness in prevention, early treatment and as a secondary therapy for severe COVID-19.

Reznikov said the data suggest these three antihistamines may work by either disrupting the virus’s interactions with ACE2 or by binding with another protein that may interfere with viral replication. The protein, known as a sigma receptor, is part of a cell’s communications network.

Reznikov approached Ostrov in March with a hypothesis and an idea: Drugs that bind ACE2 could change disease outcomes, so she asked Ostrov to develop a list of small-molecule drug candidates.

She then pursued a strategy to screen the drugs against virus isolates of SARS-CoV-2 with Michael Norris, Ph. D., an assistant research professor of medical geography in the department of geography and the UF Emerging Pathogens Institute. In May, Reznikov was included in the UF Clinical and Translational Science Institute’s Rapid-Response Translational Research Funding initiative to facilitate this project.

Although the findings are intriguing, Reznikov and Ostrov note there is still much to be learned about the mechanisms of how antihistamines interact with the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Because of the urgency of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ostrov said there is a possibility that the antihistamine candidates could go directly to human clinical trials without first being tested in animal models. That is the case with famotidine, an antihistamine and antacid that is undergoing clinical trials elsewhere as a therapy for severely ill COVID-19 patients.

Research funding was provided by the UF Clinical and Translational Science Institute, the University of California San Francisco Clinical & Translational Science Institute, the National Institutes of Health and the Center for Data Driven Insight and Innovation at University of California Health.

OTC Antihistamines – Side Effects

Path to improved well being

When your body is exposed to allergens (allergy triggers), it makes histamines. Your body releases these chemicals to attack the allergen. Unfortunately, histamines cause the itching, sneezing, runny nose, and watery eyes associated with allergies. Antihistamines treat these symptoms.

First-generation OTC antihistamines

These were among the first antihistamines scientists developed. They are cheaper and widely available. They work in the part of the brain that controls nausea and vomiting. This means they can prevent motion sickness too. The most common side effects of first-generation antihistamines is feeling sleepy. For this reason, they are sometimes used to help people who have trouble sleeping (insomnia).

Some common kinds you can buy over the counter include:

  • Brompheniramine (brand names include Children’s Dimetapp Cold)
  • Chlorpheniramine (brand names include Chlor-Trimeton, Actifed Cold)
  • Dimenhydrinate (brand names include Dramamine)
  • Diphenhydramine (brand names include Benadryl, Nytol, Sominex)
  • Doxylamine (brand names include Vicks NyQuil, Tylenol Cold and Cough Nighttime)

Second-generation OTC antihistamines

These are newer medicines. Many treat allergy symptoms without causing sleepiness. Common kinds include:

  • Loratadine (brand names include Alavert, Claritin)
  • Cetirizine (brand names include Zyrtec)
  • Fexofenadine (brand names include Allegra)

Note: Some antihistamines are mixed with other medicines. These could include pain relievers or decongestants. Many of the brand names above are for these combination medicines. These are meant to treat many symptoms at the same time. It is a good idea to treat just the symptoms that you have. If you have only a runny nose, don’t choose a medicine that also treats headache and fever.

How do I safely take OTC antihistamines?

Read the directions on the label before taking any medicine. Learn how much to take and how often you should take it. If you have any questions about how much medicine to take, call your family doctor or pharmacist. Keep track of which OTC medicines you are using and when you take them. If you need to go to the doctor, take the list with you.

Follow these tips to make sure you are taking the right amount of medicine:

  • Take only the amount recommended on the medicine’s label. Don’t assume that more medicine will work better or quicker. Taking more than the recommended amount can be dangerous.
  • Mixing medicines can be dangerous. If you take a prescription medicine, ask your doctor if it’s okay to also take an OTC antihistamine.
  • Don’t use more than 1 OTC antihistamine at a time unless your doctor says it’s okay. They may have similar active ingredients that add up to be too much medicine.

How can I safely store OTC antihistamines?

Store all medicines out of reach and sight of young children. Store in a cool, dry place so they do not lose effectiveness. Do not store them in bathrooms. These areas can get hot and humid.

When mosquitoes bite, take antihistamines for relief


August 2, 2011

In the warmer summer months, mosquitoes are unwelcome companions during many outdoor activities. While most people only have mild reactions to their bites, people with allergic reactions can experience severe symptoms. Recently I saw a 4-year-old boy during a clinic visit. Every time, he would get bitten, the affected body part would swell to nearly three inches across. Due to his scratching and congestion from the swelling, he had multiple episodes of cellulitis, a potentially serious bacterial skin infection that required antibiotics to resolve.

A female mosquito alights on a hand.CDC

If you or your children suffer from these reactions, oral antihistamines are a powerful, but sometimes overlooked, home treatment. They are much more effective at relieving swelling and itching than topical products (including topical antihistamines and calamine lotion). For best relief, I encourage patients with mosquito bite sensitivities to begin taking an antihistamine a few hours before going into an area where they are likely to be bitten. Depending on the size of the reaction, it may be necessary to repeat the recommended dose for a few days until the swelling subsides.

Many antihistamines are now available over the counter. Since they are similar in effectiveness, your choice of product can depend on brand preferences and tolerance for side effects. From most to least sedating, these products include diphenhydramine (Benadryl)), cetirizine (Zyrtec), loratadine (Claritin), and fexofenadine (Allegra). Keep in mind that Benadryl must be taken every six hours to be effective. The other products provide 24-hour relief.

With antihistamines, you should be able to treat most mosquito bite reactions at home. Ice can also help to reduce local swelling, if applied shortly after being bitten. To prevent infections, try not to scratch itchy bites. Scratching can result in open sores, which increases the risk of developing staph (Staphylococcus aureus), strep (Streptococcus pyogenes) and other bacterial infections. Watch for any of the following warning signs, which should be evaluated by your healthcare professional: Your swelling does not start resolving after a day of antihistamine treatment; you have open sores at the bite sites; or you have infections involving your eyes or joints.

Dusk on a lake, a prime time and location for mosquito bites.Allison Gray

Mosquitoes are typically most active at dawn and dusk. Some species are also day biters, including the Asian tiger mosquito, which can carry the West Nile Virus. For this reason, whenever you are outdoors, the best protection is a long-sleeve shirt, long pants and a hat. You should also use a mosquito repellent if you are hiking or camping in woods and wetlands. Many repellents include DEET as the active ingredient. They should be applied carefully by following the instructions for adults and children on the label.

… short…. friends know … our problem with food and rash remains the same and is not yet resolved. Up to a year, on the recommendation of the head of the child, we waited, thought the intestines would ripen and begin not to give the rash for complementary foods. But until the rash disappears. All I removed the drugs, it’s no use feeding the child, it’s enterosgel, 2 or 3 packs drank it, zirtek and fenistil, I FOLLOW THE MOTHER’S DIET !! SO, the pediatrician does not advise, but RECOMMENDS to remove the guards, but to feed with a mixture. I am in shock and categorically against. What do you say?

Children’s paracetamol and fenistil

Before vaccination, we are told to drink suprastin and ibufen from the temperature and what did you do before and after vaccination


Therefore, I began to sin on the ineffectiveness of paracetamol, and went to the pharmacy for Nurofen.When breastfeeding, Panadol is not recommended for mothers even in a child’s dosage. And I always give fenistil when taking medications, for possible allergic reactions.


They drank suprastin beforehand and nurofen afterwards, if the temperature rose.

Suprastin is generally prohibited for children. it is the most terrible of all antihistamines and is the most liver-damaging.
give in order to in case of a possible allergic. reaction, she did not come out. that is, you will not see it externally. but inside the body will be bad.think for yourself, to give or not, but obviously not Suprastin

Suprastin and paracetamol gave.

Nothing. My temperature did not rise

Adaptol, azithromycin, actovegin, amoxiclav, analgin, anaferon, anaferon for childrenmovalis, nifuroxazide, noofen, nurofen, omez, paracetamol, pimafucin, pyrantelPhenistil Contraindications. Hypersensitivity neonatal period up to 1 month …

Not anything. just watched that 2 weeks before the vaccination there was not even a runny nose….

My child is allergic, so before each vaccination within 2-3 days and within 3-4 days after vaccination I give antihistamines (suprastin or fenistil) without fail. at temperatures above 38.5 degrees, the doctor recommended giving children’s paracetamol in syrup. but we have not had such a temperature yet (it was 37 – 37.5)

We were prescribed dibazol to drink for a week, and 4 days before vaccination – suprastin in the morning and in the evening. Suprastin before vaccination is a standard thing.

Didn’t do anything

Why give in advance, poison the body once again? M. b. you will tolerate the vaccination well (we never had a reaction). Yes, and Suprastin – seriously, it is better fenistil-drops, they act softer.

Children’s Chelyabinsk. Children74 – an active forum for parents about children! Our children The health of our children is zirtek or fenistil? But I remember before the vaccinations I never gave anything, only paracetamol one time after akds, because the temperature was rising.

Neither one nor the other was drunk, neither before nor after vaccination.

Only after vaccination gave. we always had a temperature after them.

Before vaccination, nothing, and after-put Nurofen’s candle. There was no temperature)

Hello girls, we were vaccinated yesterday with poliomilit-hepatitis-DPT. Temperature yesterday and today. Who has how many days

There was no temperature reaction!

Children’s paracetamol suppositories and or nurofen syrup depending on age. Fenistil drops are desirable, they can be given even to very young children, mixed with food or drink and Fenistil-gel.

We had 2 days high up to 39. and my leg hurt that I could not walk myself one day. and then it was normal

On the night after vaccination, the temperature was above 38 and the next day. Except for the temperature, nothing else.
We did it at 3 months.

I held on for two days. The last vaccination was hard to bear that even called an ambulance.

My son had a little fever for a couple of days. once a day, somewhere rose to 37. I transferred it normally, did not be capricious.

For 3 days before and after vaccination she was given fenistil, the injection sites were smeared with fenistil gel for 3 days. The temperature was at night, I put in a tsefekon candle and that’s it. The next day was just dry without temperature.

To order CHILDREN’S PARACETAMOL 0.12 5ML 100.0 STRAWBERRY SUSP from the Medicines section on Apteka.RU it is very simple and profitable we have low prices in the Moscow region for medicines! FENISTYL 0.1% 20ML DROPS. GlaxoSmithKline.

Experienced mothers, write your list of the necessary for the beginning of the baby’s life. And when is a feeding table needed?)))

The list is long, it can be extended depending on your budget…. …
feeding table, once you have learned to sit, approx. 8 months

Can paracetamol be given to a child. Today, children’s paracetamol is one of the most popular and effective antipyretic and pain relievers.

Cot .. stroller))) sawnuts .. overalls (for different weather) a bunch of little men, bodysuits .. (a pair of pairs of socks), hats, caps. … nipples .. bottles, creams, powders .. (HUGE LIST)
Feeding table . . bought when she was 4 months old. there was a chair with fixation in 3 positions, for children from 3 months.Almost lying .. half-sitting and sitting-ohhh how glad I was to him !!!! life-saving chair)))) I could cook in the kitchen calmly .. the small one is sitting. … He sees me and deals with his toys .. I was very pleased with them! “

A table – when it will be good to sit on your own. Be sure to have a bed, clothes, bathing products, bedding in the bed: mattress, blanket, bed linen. Diapers, cotton swabs – clean ears, cotton wool – clean nose. Baby cream – useful in any case, especially going outside in the cold, you need a special cream.Stroller. Rattles. Well, the rest, if necessary, such as pacifiers, nipples, bottles and more. Well, what the budget allows: now there are a lot of bells and whistles such as developing rugs, mobiles in bed, carriers and other things. Yes, for the first time, a bathtub, because you are afraid to bathe in a large bathtub due to lack of experience.

At 6 months, the table can already be taken. everything that is necessary for the baby and for you. a stroller, a changing table, in general, everything that you and your baby will need for korman

For the very first time: a changing board, or a table, 2 bottles, diapers, undershirts, sliders, if you are going to change the diaper.An envelope or blanket for walking. Stroller, crib, mattress in bed, bed linen for the baby, absorbent disposable diapers. Wet wipes. a highchair for someone when we are from 6 months, and someone from 8 or from a year. a slide for swimming, a bath.

First-aid kit for mothers and children, baby diaper for newborns, crib, stroller, bed linen in the crib, a couple of three sets, several linen diapers, flannel blanket, undershirts with closed sleeves warm and cold .. bonnets bonnets…if you swaddle, you need more diapers. if you don’t, the sliders are with ties so that there are no buttons and buttons on them. I didn’t have a feeding table, as well as a changing table. a chair for feeding was bought when the child was already sitting. at seven months.

Kindergartens. The nurse said to immediately give paracetamol and suprastin. I gave fenistil before vaccination – a couple of days – at three months the pentaxim vaccination against hepatitis was excellent, at 4.5 it turned out at 5 – the same pentaxim, and the same prophylaxis with fenistil – not…

I didn’t have a changing table. They quickly grew out of the bath, so try to take a not very small one. Out of clothes, one-piece suits seem more comfortable to me, since the blouses are pulled up, and the back is bare.

First of all, Lyalka needs a mother and her love! Of things – a crib – not necessarily up to 4 months, if you have enough space to put your baby to sleep with you. Although “for the form” you can put it. The stroller can be replaced with a sling (you will find on the Internet what it is if you do not know).Even a bathtub for bathing is not necessary if you have a regular bathroom in the apartment (it is enough just to clean or wipe it before bathing). Thermometer for water. I recommend a plastic swim slide. A changing table (you can adapt any one that you can do without for six months, sew a mattress on it or put a thick blanket and oilcloth on it, it is inconvenient to swaddle and change clothes on the bed, because a sheet or a diaper is captured and interfered with or something else … interferes. ) Diapers thin and flannel about 10 each…. If you don’t use disposable diapers, then you need 25 thin pieces. If you don’t buy a large pack at once, first try some one, some are allergic. Sliders-blouses undershirts-pieces of 7 per size (that is, those that are not small and not large, about 7 are better to have, you can have more, but I do not recommend less). Bike blanket + warm holofiber or synthetic winterizer. I do not advise cotton wool-heavy. Of course, duvet covers for blankets, 2 pcs. Next: If you are breastfeeding one bottle, if the baby wants to drink water.Perhaps he doesn’t want to. You may need a pacifier, just in case 2 get: latex and silicone, which one you like. (Also, nipples come in different shapes – for newborns, basically the form of a droplet, for older children, orthopedic.) Also from clothes, according to the season, warm overalls, socks, hats. Also a large towel for after bathing. A special hairbrush like this. Powder, oil, cream bepanten. Cotton buds. Wet wipes. Liquid baby soap with a dispenser is desirable, very convenient to use (especially when only one hand is free).Baby bathing product. Oilcloth for a stroller (can be used not only for a stroller)
A table and a highchair for feeding are needed when the child is sitting by himself. There are those that are adjustable in height, but still not earlier than 4 months.
I also strongly advise you to read the books of Komarovsky and Nikitin, even if this is not your first child. For books, you can contact me by mail, although they are freely available on the Internet.

You can buy a table right now, even if it’s worth it)))) Hee)) In general, at the very beginning of life – a MEDICAL KIT – so that the baby always needs in the house so as not to fly to the pharmacy (brilliant green, cotton wool, pipettes, vaseline oil, peroxide, a series (we bathe in it), cotton swabs, powder, ekspumizan L (the tummy suddenly swells), paracetamol for children (temperature suddenly), fenistil (suddenly allergic), baby cream for a diaper, a small pear, you can still buy an aspirator suddenly pull the nozzle out of the nozzle good thing) like everything from the first aid kit for the first time !! ! Further – socks, undershirts, a hat, diapers, diapers – from clothes the baby does not need anything else for the first month! a bath, a bucket, a ladle, a towel – this is for bathing! ! when sleeping, you can cover with a small blanket)) and you can also buy pacifiers – it smacks my lips very well! you can buy a bottle – it will come in handy)) for the first time nothing more is needed)) and then there are palzunochki, blouses will go by the second month))

How to give a small child pills?

Broken and mix with some water, put everything in a spoon directly into your mouth. By the way, it is also better to drink water from a spoon – it will not wean from the breast and will get used to the spoon faster.

Fenistil. Fenkarol.Paracetamol for children. Trade names Daynafed Junior.

Crush into powder, mix in a spoon with water and a drop of sugar, give from a spoon.

We crushed with two teaspoons into powder and diluted with water.

Grind the tablet, mix with a teaspoon of boiled water, throw the child’s head back a little, pour in.
Never mix the tablet with water in a bottle or milk, as the child may refuse to eat and drink for a short time.
Instead of “Nurofen” syrup, rectal suppositories “Tsefekon” are better – they act faster, are safer.

Crush with two teaspoons.
into a syringe with water and into your mouth!

So with juice

I also inserted a candle of paracetamol as I came and already gave Fenistil 2 times .. and he is sleeping … there is no temperature pah-pah .. As the New Year was celebrated in the USSR. Sleeping on mattresses and yoga are features of American day care centers.

What nafig pills to such a kid. Suprastin tablets can be replaced with some droplets such as Fenistil.And paracetamol tab – on Tsefekon candles, well, or Panadol syrup (these are all paracetamol-containing drugs).

Crush a quarter and drop it into a spoonful of juice …

Why Suprastin is there in droplets of fenistil from birth from an allergy

What should be in a children’s first aid kit

We only have Paracetamol syrup and Salin … the rest is bought as needed Needs ….

In this case, children’s Paracetamol and preparations containing Calpol, Efferalgan and in order to enhance the effect of the above drugs can have a positive effect, the antihistamine Suprastin, Fenistil, Zyrtec can be given 1-2 times a day.

I always have in my children’s first-aid kit nurofen (in case of pain or fever), Nazivin (if suddenly a runny nose on the night), something antiviral – anaferon, viferon, cytovir, some of this (so that at the first sign of immediately supporting immunity ). And the rest is all as needed. And I forgot – fenistil or zyrtek.

Paracetamol, peroxide, fenistil (we use it), physical. solution, vitamins

Nothing, if possible.
Well, if healthy and from healthy parents.

At my house Nurofen, Fenistil (ointment and in drops), Aqua-Maris, Grippferon.For the first time, enough, to the doctor, if anything, and then the doctor will write out, then we buy

I have Nurofen syrup, drops Aquamaris and Otrivin-baby, Grippferon, aflubin, Derinat – all this is the prevention and treatment of symptoms of acute respiratory infections and acute respiratory infections , Smecta and Bifidumbacterin for diarrhea, Calgel for teeth, Fenistil drops and gel for allergies, Chlorfillipt lubricate the neck, Stodal cough syrup, hydrogen peroxide, brilliant green, iodine.
And my daughter was ill only once for almost 2 years))

Prescribed fenistil in drops.Who has had a reaction to this drug? And which one can replace it from the temperature? There is paracetamol syrup for children, and better candles cefikon, dosage by age.

Yesterday I bought antibiotics, just in case there is always antiflu

It depends who uses what drugs. In general, I agree with Natalia.
In ours:
1. Cotton wool, bing, elastic bandage, tourniquet, roll of plaster, gloves.
2. Chlorhexidine, peroxide, iodine, ammonia, furacilin, streptocide.
3. Antipyretic (Nurofen, Viburcol).
4. Anesthetic (wear-pa, any analgesic for children).
5. Activated carbon, smectite, phthalozol.
6. Ointment like “rescuer,” levomekol “, panthenol”.

11. Claritin, demidrol, tavegil.
12. Children’s antibiotic with a broad spectrum of action.
13. Notepad, pen.

This is from the most basic …

Hello! Can you please tell me, after the vaccination we were prescribed paracytamol and suprostin? if there is no reaction, why drugs ???

INSTRUCTIONS for medical use of the drug PARACETAMOL CHILDREN. Registration number LS-000094-211013 Trade name of the drug Paracetamol for children International non-proprietary name paracetamol Chemical name N…

If there is heat and temperature, give it. And if it doesn’t make sense to stuff the kids for nothing (

Paracetamol is an antipyretic in cases of fever,
Suprostin is an antihistamine, uh, anti-allergic – you need nothing extra, you have not been prescribed

And you read the annotations to them – and all the questions
themselves will disappear and so the child has already been harmed by the vaccine, so finish it off with chemistry …

Paracetamol is like an antipyretic if the temperature rises, and suprastin is an antihistamine (proto-allergenic) if a reaction to the injected drug appears.

Suprastin, so that there is no allergic reaction, you can play it safe and give a quarter. And parocytamon (nurafen) if the temperature rises above 38.

Some children are not susceptible to paracetamol, therefore, bring them down with the help of a child There are many antihistamines, such as Fenistil, Zirtek, Claritin, Suprastin, etc. But I think that for children …

I never gave. If given, it will not be clear whether the child has any reaction to the vaccine or not.And if there is already a temperature, then give paracetamol. And if there is redness and induration at the site of the stake, then the doctor advised me to apply a warm diaper. But I didn’t do that either, it took a day or two by itself.

Fuck! Suprastin is prescribed for 4 months ((

Children: at the age of 1 to 12 months – 1/4 table. (6.5 mg) 2-3 times a day
paracetamol syrup for children:
– from 3 months to 1 year – 2.5-5 ml (1 / 2-1 teaspoon) or 60-120 mg;

Suprastin is prohibited for children under 1 year old, doctors prescribe (sorry) the old fashioned way and little experience.Now there is fenistil in droplets for babies (how many months – so many droplets). Many recommend giving the baby antihistamines before vaccinations, 2 days before and 2 days after vaccination, so as not to strain the baby’s body (which is fighting the injected virus) with allergic manifestations of impurities of the vaccine. The number of children with allergies has increased in recent years (((

Suprastin he is from allergies and very, very bitter is better with another drug, such as fenistil drops, and paracetamol is antipyretic, I was told you can Ibufen D for children he comes from 3 months without dyes and sugar, to give immediately after you come home after vaccination, we had a temperature only once for a vaccination, kept until the evening of another day…

Some children are not susceptible to paracetamol, therefore, bring down their temperature with the help of children’s Panadol or There are many antihistamines, such as Fenistil, Zirtek, Claritin, Suprastin, etc. But I think that …

Why stuff a child with pills.

Strange, usually prescribe something like fenistil.

We gave fenistil drops and nurofen for children …. the doctor prescribed it, we have such a practice after vaccination, fenistil is independent of the reaction, and nurofen – if the baby then tempers.

Question for those who have had a child’s temperature after vaccinations …

Up to two days, our temperature rose only after the first vaccination. Was 37.8, then – normal.If it is below 37.5, then you don’t have to worry at all.

Antipyretic CefeconD, Panadol for children from 3 months if it is not, then paracetamol, in general, children of this age are recommended temperature Antihistamine Fenistil syrup, fenistil gel not so much as an antihistamine, but as a remedy for insect bites.

Once in the evening we got 37.1 and the next day by the evening it was 37.4, then it didn’t rise anymore, but I started to lean on the leg where they put it. but it doesn’t cry, it doesn’t hurt, the doctor said that it would pass soon.

Normal reaction, about 3 days such an effect is possible, you should have been prescribed medication in the form of antihistamines (fenistil, suprastin) in 3 days, if the temperature lasts longer and something is alarming in the child’s behavior, it is better to call a doctor at home.

We had the same reaction after the vaccinations. The child was unhealthy for 3-4 days, antipyretic was also given at 37.4 because this is a reaction to vaccination and not the body’s resistance to the virus and also antihistamines.

We had a tempo for 2nd and 3rd acds.
The first time I got up on the same day – I put the cefekon 2 or 3 times, I don’t remember. On the trail. day temp. did not have.
The second time, too, on the same day, I got up and kept the whole track. day 37 with kopecks. In the morning it was gone.
In general, the temperature during vaccinations has nothing to do with the formation of immunity, so if the child is capricious, put another candle. Why torture a child …

I had to give another antihistamine! In general, the temperature begins to knock down when it is higher than 38.5.We had a fever only in the evening, and the next day – no longer.
Maybe your child has a cold something started, it happens when the child is already sick, and here is the vaccination!
See a doctor, at least the one on duty!

Analdim candles very quickly knock down the temperature fenistil and diazolin for children, rinazolin, smecta, domrid, glucose in an ampoule in case of acetone, paracetamol candles, analdim just in case. viburcol. smecta. biogeous ORS or humana electrolyte. erius. vibrocil, nasol baby or…

The temperature will hold for a couple of days.
Rise to 38-Shoot Down.

We also had a fever, in my opinion I don’t remember for 4 days just what kind of vaccination, it seems to be the same.
I did not give Nurofen, the reviews about him are bad, it often causes allergies. I bought Tsefekon-D candles for children, they are based on paracetamol, quickly dropped the temperature.
We were also told to give fenistil in drops, 5 drops by mouth, to reduce allergy to the vaccine. but I did not always give

Pediart told us not to shoot down below 38.
I didn’t measure my own specifically, I was so a little capricious …

What can you give a child before vaccination with pentaxim so that he could easily endure it

My children easily tolerated all vaccinations. Gave nothing.

Suprastin or Fenistil? Hello! Please develop my doubts. When we have a prolonged temperature and have to use antipyretics continuously for 1-3 days, you can alternate paracetamol and ibuprofen.

Nurofen a candle in the ass

Give a tasty candy

Do not try to do nonsense.

Give antiallergic the day before.

You can give fencarl or fenistil a dosage corresponding to age and a quarter of children’s paracetamol.

Now people need the following medicines Painkillers and antipyretics paracetamol for children and adults, ibuprofen for children and adults. Antihistamines suprastin, fenistil for children.

I’m going to Thailand. What medications are best for taking?

Something from sexually transmitted diseases!

Pharmgroup Analgesic non-narcotic drug.Pharmacological action Non-narcotic analgesic, blocks COX1 and COX2 mainly in the central nervous system, affecting the centers of pain and thermoregulation.

For the stomach (from poisoning) – levomecitin, smectite, activated carbon (now there is white coal, more effective)
from temperature and anesthetic – paracetamol, panadol, etc.
from wounds – hydrogen peroxide or chlorhexidine, iodine or brilliant green, levomekol (from purulent wounds), plaster, bandage, cotton wool.
Just in case, mosquito repellent. Antiallergic tablets – diazolin, suprastin, etc.
From bruises, dislocations and bruises – fastumgel, etc.

Better something from stomach upset. Not that there is some kind of unsanitary conditions, just food may not be familiar to us. and the rest is honey. insurance will help. It’s dangerous without her.

From burns and from indigestion.
although, I have never poisoned myself with anything)

Not overdue, definitely. and so, depending on your state of health. one has a headache, another has a headache ….

Condoms, since they are small :-)) You don’t need anything else, there are pharmacies at every step.You can put some kind of absorbent in your luggage, just for every fireman.
ALWAYS take spray Pentanol, from sunburn.

We know everything about children’s health. Prescribed a bunch of medicines candles Viferon, tonsilgon, tantum verde, ascoril, augmentin, fenistil, paracetamol alternating with nurofen, normobact and, of course, plenty of drink.

From experience: I advise you to collect a first aid kit. Almost everything was useful to us!
– smecta (from intestinal upset, which can overtake due to unusual food),
– mezim (from pain in the stomach after a local meal),
– nise (anesthetic from the head and other things),
– fervex (if the temperature rises with acclimatization),
– grammedin (pills from the throat, they also help well on the plane),
– nasol (drops in the nose, if you suddenly have a runny nose),
– flamin (from the liver, if you want to “walk” properly),
– Lifeguard (ointment for wounds and burns)
– bandage, plasters, iodine (the bottom is such that it is easy to get hurt in some places).

If you drink some constantly.
I didn’t need anything else.

Mosquitoes get it …. and so everything is there.

From food poisoning: smecta, enterosgel, bactisubtil.
For colds (it is easy to catch a cold under the air conditioner): at least fervex, cycloferon is an immunostimulant.
Liquid for hand disinfection.
Your usual medicines, if any.
In case of injuries: sterile bandage, adhesive plaster, chlorhexidine solution for disinfection (they can also rinse the throat with sore throat and mouth with stomatitis).

I take fumitox from mosquitoes (you never know what they spread), I buy aloe vera cream for burns on the spot, bring it home and use it here, there are also a lot of local balms for insect bites, joint pain, I bring them from there as souvenirs. The pharmacies have everything. There have never been any problems with nutrition, we observe the following rules:
We do not drink water from the tap;
We eat in local cafes (poisoning happens in restaurants for tourists);
We do not overeat with seafood, our body is not able to assimilate so much protein at once, so we take a side dish for the first time;
When buying food in the shanks, make sure that it is fresh from the fire.
Have a good rest!

On the basis of paracetamol, you can use children’s suspensions Panadol, Efferalgan, Paracetamol, based on ibufen, children’s suspensions Ibufen, Nurofen are good. Today, Fenistil, Zyrtek drops, Claritin, Suprastin tablets are popular.

The most important medicine is your attitude, but drugs against poisoning will not interfere. We usually take a full first aid kit, but hardly use it. It is useless to take our funds from mosquitoes, they do not work on their mosquitoes.They sell sprays and ointments from them and from the effects of bites. They are not expensive and much better.

On all their trips, including Thailand, they always took with them a full first-aid kit (for headaches, antibiotics, for indigestion, lozenges for a sore throat, for fever, eye drops, ear drops, a remedy for burns, iodine, green herbs, etc.), there is always a child with us. But on all trips we sometimes use the Panthenol spray (although we try, but sometimes we overburn) and once the eye drops came in handy, but this was already in Turkey (conjunctivitis), and nothing else was needed, thank God! And in Thailand, pharmacies at every step, will not let you die.Take medications if you are taking them regularly.

Yes, at first I also took all kinds of pills. I have given up on this for a long time. You type, then you throw it away. If you are taking any medication all the time, take it. Serious drugs in Thailand are sold only in clinics as prescribed by a doctor. Remedies for headaches, diarrhea, etc. are sold in pharmacies around every corner. Even minimarkets have the necessary set of medicines. Many pharmacies speak Russian or use electronic translators.In stores, too, there are often explanatory inscriptions in Russian. Medicines are cheaper than ours and of much better quality. For falsification or low-quality products, they are not elected to the Duma, but shot. Many people note that even well-known brands of medicines bought there are more effective.
So, I understand your concerns, but don’t waste your money.

Where can I see the list of “what to take with you on vacation with a child (year and 8) from medicines”? or tell me who is the stalk

On the ambulance website
http: // www.forum.feldsher.ru/topic/4863-aptechka-dlja-malisha-na-leto/
they generally have a bunch of topics about first aid kits
http://www.forum.feldsher.ru/index.php?app=core&module=search&do = search & fromMainBar = 1

Antiviral, anti-cold and antipyretic drugs – Paracetamol baby syrup or suppositories – antipyretic – Fenistil – gel helps relieve swelling and itching from insect bites and hives.

In your head you can see. And if it is not published there, it is better not to go on vacation with a child)

It is imperative to take a mini-first-aid kit with you on your trip, in which, of course, there should be an antipyretic, analgesic, antiallergic (psilobalm, fenistil in drops or in the form of a gel ), activated carbon, thermometer, bandage, iodine or brilliant green, cotton wool and plaster, the rest, if necessary, on the spot and buy.Every child has their own “personal” medicines – don’t forget them too.

The main thing is, do not forget rehydron and paracetamol for children.

I usually take an antipyretic, and something for a disorder, baby plasters and clothes. and also, remedies for mosquitoes and ticks. and protective milk from the sun

We went here recently. The son is one year and 4 months old.
I collected the first aid kit.
activated carbon
paracetamol syrup
brilliant green
aqualor (rinse nose)
vibrocil (vasoconstrictor drops)
cotton pads, sticks
baby cream.
calgel (our teeth are climbing)
In reality, only paracetamol, aqualor, vibrocil and rehydron were useful (they caught everything there, like rotavirus) – in general, there was a little snot.

Panthenol, fenistil or edem, chloramphenicol, paracetamol, alcohol, plaster, chlorophyllipt, baby cream, antibiotic augmentin, salutab, dressing bandage, cotton wool, mesh. Fenistil is very convenient for insect bites.

Liveo – obligatory !! ! These are of the type of smecta, linex, in short, beneficial bacteria that make sure that everything is fine with the stomach.But on trips, the stomach always suffers. a month ago my son (1.5 years old), it was this medicine that saved, the smectite did not help, and this is foreign, new, not yet counterfeited – therefore effective. I don’t know if I got some water in the sea, or I ate something or something, the diarrhea was uuuhhh. and began to take Liveo and everything returned to normal. Now this drug is a must in my medicine cabinet, and not only when traveling.

Yesterday we had a DPT vaccine for a 7-month-old child. By the evening, the temperature rose to 38 at 4 in the morning, again 38!

Yes, this is the worst vaccine I gave Nurofen, it tastes nicer and gives an anesthetic

Child sleep paracetamol.Yes, we were also told after vaccination and before going to bed and the next day was given in the morning and besides that, also suprasin. Nurofen and fenistil are usually given.



The skin around the eyes is especially thin and sensitive and if you do not sleep well on it or it is not enough reflected. Simple home remedies can help improve your complexion by relieving puffiness or reducing eye redness.Just get back a fresh look, let’s figure it out.

Green, black and chamomile tea

Green and black teas contain tannins and caffeine. Tannins have an astringent effect on the skin and help reduce swelling, while caffeine constricts blood vessels to reduce swelling.

Chamomile tea has natural anti-inflammatory properties, helping to relieve redness and puffiness around the eyes. Pour boiling water over 2 bags of green, black or chamomile tea, let it brew for 3 minutes.Take them out of the water, let them cool down a bit, and then cool them additionally using ice or the refrigerator. Place a sachet on each eye and sit for 15 minutes.


Oddly enough, spoons will also help. The cool metal constricts blood vessels, helping to reduce redness and puffiness in the eye area.

Take 4 metal spoons and place them in a glass of ice water. When they have cooled, take out two and place them over each eye, following the contour of your eye socket.When the spoons begin to heat up, remove the cold ones from the glass, and send these to cool. Continue this process until the swelling subsides.


Promotes vasoconstriction and reduces edema and cold milk. It soothes dry, irritated skin, and the saturated fat found in whole milk hydrates well.

Pour whole milk or cream into a small container and add ice. When the liquid has cooled, soak 2 cotton pads in it.Squeeze lightly and place in the area above each eye. After they warm up, wet them again and repeat the procedure.

Cucumber Slices

Cucumber Slices are a classic remedy for treating irritation and swelling around the eyes. Cucumbers contain ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and caffeic acid, both of which help reduce swelling.

Cut 2 slices from the chilled cucumber, place in the eye area and lie down quietly for 10-15 minutes. Remove the slices and wash with cool water.

Egg whites

Egg whites act as an astringent, making the skin firm and smooth. Proteins are also high in vitamin B2 or riboflavin, which has a beneficial effect on the skin and is very important for eye fatigue.

Whisk 2 egg whites and use a brush to apply to the under eye area. Let the mixture dry for about 15 minutes and then rinse.

Twelve causes of eyelid edema and how to treat them

A swollen eyelid is much worse than just a cosmetic defect.This condition can look intimidating, especially when the swelling of the eyelid is so severe that it prevents you from seeing normally.

Usually causes of swelling of the eyelids are harmless. However, seemingly insignificant problems can actually be quite serious. Therefore, if your eyelids are swollen, you should seek help from your doctor.


If the eyes watery, itch, become red and this is accompanied by swelling of the eyelids, the cause may be an allergy.Pollen, animal allergens, and others can irritate the eyes, causing an allergic reaction.

Eye allergies are rarely dangerous but can cause irritation. Avoiding known allergens is the best form of treatment.

But if symptoms persist, you should see a doctor . He will recommend allergy testing or treatment.


When makeup and skin care products come into contact with your eyes, they can irritate the eyes by touching the surrounding tissue.This forms eyelid edema, which turns red and sore. This condition can be a manifestation of contact dermatitis.

In addition, other allergic reactions to cosmetics can provoke edema.

In order to feel better, you need to rinse off the makeup well from the eyelids.

If the burning sensation persists or intensifies, consult a doctor . To establish a diagnosis, he will conduct patch testing and prescribe remedies that will help relieve eyelid edema.

Do not use eye whitening drops or any means to relieve pain. Such drugs can enter into undesirable chemical reactions with decorative and care cosmetics.


Conjunctivitis, also known as pink eye, is an inflammation of the conjunctiva. It is a transparent thin tissue that covers the outside of the eye as well as the back of the eyelids.

People with conjunctivitis usually have pink or red eyeballs, may feel pain, itching, and have swollen eyelids.

Most often, conjunctivitis is caused by a viral infection, less often by a bacterial infection. Inflammation caused by viruses goes away on its own in 7-10 days.

Sometimes allergies or irritants such as perfume irritate the eyes, causing conjunctivitis.

To prevent the onset and development of conjunctivitis, it is important:

  • keep your eyes clean;
  • do not rub or touch eyes;
  • Wash hands frequently to prevent spread of infection.

Stop applying makeup at the first manifestations of conjunctivitis in order not to worsen the condition of the eyes.

If symptoms worsen, pain gets worse, or conjunctivitis persists for a long time, antibiotics are likely to be needed. They must be prescribed by a doctor.

Barley (hordeolum)

Barley (hordeolum) is an infection of the eyelid gland. The most common type of barley infects the lacrimal glands located at the base of the eyelashes.In addition, barley sometimes forms inside the eyelid, in an infected sebaceous gland.

As a rule, barley begins with the development of red, itchy, painful swollen lumps. Subsequently, after a few hours or days, they begin to resemble acne. Some people may have an abscess.

The infection usually affects only one lacrimal or sebaceous gland and does not require treatment. In this case, warm compresses can relieve pain.

Patients should avoid eye care products, including cosmetics and creams, until the barley disappears.And never try to squeeze out the stye – it can spread the infection and damage the eye.

Antibiotics can help if:

  • several barley appears at once,
  • barley is very painful,
  • symptoms worsen,
  • fever develops,
  • vision is impaired.

If you experience any of these symptoms with barley, be sure to see your doctor.


Chalazion is similar to barley, but it is not an infectious pathology.A similar disease occurs when the outlet channel is blocked. This leads to chronic proliferative inflammation of the eyelid cartilage gland.

Moreover, people who have had one case of such a disease may have relapses. The swelling can get quite large.

However, chalazion rarely hurts. It usually goes away on its own after a few days, just like acne.

Warm compresses can help the chalazion cleanse faster.

When chalazion increases, it becomes painful and begins to interfere with vision.It is usually difficult to tell the difference between chalazion, barley, or an eye infection.

If the lump does not go away after a few days or there are other signs of infection, such as fever, the patient should see a doctor.


Fatigue or exhaustion can make the eyelids look thick and puffy. As well as the retention of water in the body during the night. Especially if the person slept badly.

Applying a cold compress while lying on a pillow may help.Drinking a glass of water can help reduce fluid retention and eyelid swelling.


Crying can rupture tiny blood vessels in the eyes and eyelids, especially if it is strong or prolonged.

When eyelid edema occurs in a person after crying, fluid retention caused by increased blood flow to the eye area may be the cause.

Relaxation, cool compresses, lifting the head and drinking water will help here.

Orbital cellulitis

Orbital cellulitis is an infection deep in the tissues of the eyelid, behind the orbital septum.It can spread quickly and is often very painful. Even a small cut can create bacteria in numbers that can cause orbital cellulite.

If the eyelid is red, streaked, very painful or swollen, seek emergency medical attention.

Cellulite is a severe infectious pathology that must be treated with antibiotics. When the infection is complicated, you may need to take these drugs intravenously.

Basedow’s disease (diffuse toxic goiter)

Basedow’s disease is an endocrine disease caused by an increased activity of the thyroid gland.

It can cause the thyroid gland to malfunction, mistakenly releasing antibodies to fight a non-existent eye infection.

Antibodies secreted by the thyroid gland can cause swelling and inflammation of the eyes.

There are several treatments for Graves’ disease, including various medications and thyroid surgery.

Ophthalmic herpes

Ophthalmic herpes is a herpes infection in and around the eyes. Although anyone can develop ocular herpes, it is most common in children.In this case, the eye turns red.

To diagnose herpes, the doctor needs to take an eye culture to check for the virus. Although the virus remains in the body and cannot be cured, antiviral drugs prescribed by your doctor can help manage your symptoms.


Some people have more bacteria on their eyelids and around them than others. These bacteria can cause a condition called blepharitis.

The eyelids of such people look greasy and scaly.It looks like dandruff around the eyelashes. In addition, some people develop painful inflammation of the eyelids.

Blepharitis is a chronic disease that does not respond to treatment. It tends to worsen from time to time, and a treatment strategy can only be determined with a doctor.

Sometimes blepharitis leads to a more serious infection. If an outbreak of blepharitis is stronger than previous ones or if the pain is very intense, see your doctor right away.

Blocked tear duct

When the tear duct is blocked, the eye cannot drain the tears completely.As a result – pain and redness of the eyelids.

People with a blocked lacrimal canal may also feel eyelid crunch, having difficulty opening their eyes upon waking.

Newborns and infants are particularly prone to clogged tear ducts. The condition of such children often improves until they turn 1 year old.

A blocked tear duct can sometimes become infected. If the eyelid is very sore or the patient has a fever, you should immediately seek medical help.Antibiotics may be needed if there is an infection.

When a blocked tear duct does not clear, your doctor may order a medical procedure to clear it.

Why does puffiness appear under the eyes?

There can be many reasons for eyelid swelling and they are very different, therefore, before talking about possible methods of treatment, it is necessary in each case to determine why the eyes are swelling.

Lack of sleep, severe stress , a festive feast, even just an extra cup of tea at night: and please, puffiness under the eyes in the morning is almost guaranteed. First of all, swelling of the eyelids of the eyes is caused by fluid retention in the body. If you got up in the morning and saw a swelling under your eyes in the mirror, and by the middle of the day you have already forgotten about it, then this is most likely true edema. How to deal with such puffiness under the eyes?

In fairness, I must say that they usually pass quickly and have no unpleasant consequences.As a last resort, in order to quickly remove the swelling of the eyes, you can use special cosmetics for swelling around the eyes. Well help in the treatment of eye edema and traditional medicine.

Another reason for puffiness under the eyes can be a lack of certain substances in the body, most often proteins. So if you are on a strict diet or fundamentally do not eat animal food , then swelling of the eyes can be your problem as well. How to remove swelling from the eyes in this case? The introduction of proteins into the daily diet will help remove puffy eyes.Change your diet to avoid puffy eyelids and make things worse.

In addition, the cause of edema under the eyes in women can be premenstrual syndrome, during which the balance of fluid in the body is also disturbed. So if the eyelids are swollen a few days before menstruation, do not worry – in this case puffiness of the eyes will go away on its own with the beginning of the “critical days”. If the elimination of puffiness under the eyes is really necessary, diuretics, such as rosehip decoction or washing with water of a contrasting temperature, are the best folk remedies these days for puffiness under the eyes.

But how to remove the puffiness of the eyes if the puffiness of the lower eyelid occurs for no apparent reason with a completely correct lifestyle? In this case, to find out the cause of the swelling around the eyes, you need to see a doctor: they most often indicate problems with the heart or kidneys. So in case of severe swelling under the eyes, which, moreover, does not go away for a long time, you should not postpone a visit to a specialist.

However, if it is not possible to remove the puffiness of the eyes for a long time, perhaps the reason for this, as already mentioned, is the formed fat bags under the eyes.And puffy eyes are not indicative of fluid retention per se. In this case, the only effective method for eliminating puffiness under the eyes is only laser blepharoplasty: by removing fatty protrusions (hernias), the effect of puffy eyes also disappears.

The question of how to remove puffiness under the eyes, sooner or later, inexorably rises before everyone who is familiar with this problem firsthand. Blepharoplasty has been and remains the only method to treat puffiness under the eyes caused by hernias, providing an excellent visible result that is stable over time.

Causes of puffiness

First, let’s find the root of the problem. What are the causes of the disease?

First of all, puffiness means an excess of fluid in the body, which for one reason or another has not been removed.Also, the reason may be abuse and, in general, the use of alcohol the day before, which is especially unpleasant after large corporate events and holidays. If puffiness bothers you too often – this is an alarming signal – see your doctor.

The fact is that the genitourinary system and the kidneys are responsible for the elimination of fluid from the body, if they do not cope, edema appears. But don’t panic. In addition, rare edema is observed in absolutely healthy people. The reason for the appearance of edema can be stress – this is especially common in megacities – and even poor-quality cosmetics or incorrectly selected cream.Did you know that a nourishing night cream should be applied to your face at least an hour before bed?

Into battle

Now on store shelves you can find many cosmetics that help with puffiness.

  • Another option is tea. It not only relieves you of swelling of the face and neck in a quarter of an hour, but also improves skin tone. It is very convenient to remove puffiness from the eyes with tea: you just need to brew two sachets and apply them to the eyelids not hot, while at the same time carelessly sipping a drink from a mug. By the way, it is better to use black tea for eyelids, but green tea without fillers and dyes will be more effective for the face.
  • Excellent healer – potatoes. Grate a small potato and send the resulting gruel to your face, lightly squeezing the juice.Ten minutes – your face is fresh, and most importantly, the swelling has subsided. After the emergency potato mask, wash with clean water.
  • Parsley is also great for treating eye and neck puffiness. It is enough to rub a few roots on a grater or a meat grinder, put them in a napkin soaked in juice and send them to the eyes or neck for 10-15 minutes. After the procedure, we wash our face with warm water.
  • If you have time, you can make pumpkin gruel. Boil the chopped pumpkin in a little water until tender.Then remove from heat and knead with a spoon. Now you can add a spoonful of honey. Apply a warm pumpkin mask on the face and neck and wait a quarter of an hour. Then rinse with warm water.

Sometimes it is enough to completely confine yourself to contrasting washing in the morning. If you are actively involved in sports, make sure that the body does not suffer from dehydration, do not forget that a person should drink two liters of liquid a day and do not drink a lot at night.

That’s all the simple secrets.Be healthy!

How to remove swelling from the face if you watch the VID TV channel screensaver in the morning in the mirror. Slit eyes due to the swelling of the eyelids, the floating contour of the face can not only scare, but also spoil the mood for the whole day. The reason that the face “looked ugly” during the night may be swelling. And then you start googling “ how to get rid of swelling in 10 minutes” or “how to quickly remove swelling from the eyes.”But we recommend using the best tips on how to remove facial puffiness in order to be fully armed in any situation. You will always look fresh and rested (even if you spent the whole night at a party), because it will not be difficult to remove swelling quickly.

How to remove puffiness of the face – massage, face fitness

Fitness for the face is good not only for prolonging youth, but also for preventing edema. If it so happened that edema still appeared, then yoga for the face can only partially help – the effect will be minimal, but increasing.

However, it is not necessary to do face-building if you do not like to train your facial muscles or are afraid to do it without a coach. With M face massage you can remove swelling in a short period of time – “here and now”. Roller massagers will help to get rid of swelling on the face ( Karlie Kloss , for example, prefers crystals Guasha , and Romy Straid – a metal roller), or you can use what is always with you – your fingers.

A few movements after waking up will be enough to disperse stagnant fluid and remove swelling from the face. But remember that facial massage should not be done “dry”. Apply a cream or cosmetic oil to your face to improve glide – this will prevent skin from stretching and wrinkling.

A simple technique of facial massage from puffiness step by step

How to remove swelling from the face:

  1. Find the points behind the jaw where the lymph nodes are located and gently massage the area with circular movements and smooth pressing 5-10 times.Use your knuckles to lower your neck and massage your collarbones to loosen up your lymph.
  2. Drag the horizontal figure eight around the eye contour. Make about 10-15 of these movements, but do not press hard.
  3. Fold the fingers of both palms together and rise to the bridge of the nose. Lightly massage the skin from the center of the face to the periphery.
  4. Move to the forehead: with the index fingers bent at the joint, smooth it from the eyebrow to the temples.
  5. Massage the hair growth area around the face and massage the neck and collarbones again.

After the massage, it is enough to wash with cold water. At the end of the procedure, you will immediately notice the effect: the swelling will disappear, the cheekbones will rise slightly, and the wrinkles will become less noticeable.

Ice baths for puffiness under the eyes and on the face

This is Kate Moss’s favorite way to combat puffiness of the face. The model has repeatedly said that ice baths for the face help her to relieve puffiness in the morning, refresh her skin and improve her complexion. The same procedure is often performed by Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and other stars.Such a secret of beauty and youth. And that really makes sense.

What is the effect of ice baths to relieve swelling? The fact is that ice and cold dilate the blood vessels of the skin, which disperses stagnant fluid. This, in turn, relieves swelling and gives an immediate effect. And most importantly, you don’t need to be a beauty expert to master the technique of Kate Moss’s favorite procedure. Just take a few ice cubes, place them in a small bowl (your face should fit in it) and cover with ice water.Gently dip your face into a bowl of ice. Repeat several times.

If you do not want to take a bath, you can remove the puffiness of the face using an ice cube, namely, gently rubbing the skin with it. If you have sensitive skin, wrap the ice in a cotton cloth. To get the most out of your skin, we recommend preparing the ice well in advance. You can add green tea to the water (caffeine and the antioxidants in it are especially good for puffy eyes), lemon (to lighten the skin a little and tighten pores), dry chamomile or aloe juice (to help soothe the skin), rose water and cucumber (to tone up) and other herbs that can help the skin.

Cooling beauty products for the face that relieve swelling

Cooling beauty products, like ice, help to dilate blood vessels and disperse fluid stagnation. But they have more advantages over ice. In hot weather or in rooms with dry air due to air conditioners, our skin loses a lot of moisture. Therefore, it is so important to find a remedy that will help to retain natural moisture in it. This will help keep you hydrated and reduce swelling. In addition, in addition to moisturizing ingredients, there are many beneficial ingredients in facial cooling products that can help solve certain cosmetic problems.Cooling down, moisturizing and relieving swelling is ideal for summer.

There are three different types of tears:

  • Basal tears: These are the main functional tears that are always found in the eye.Basal tears lubricate and protect the cornea while trapping dirt and debris.

  • Emotional Tears: Strong feelings can trigger emotional tears. Emotional tears are associated with attachment, physical pain, empathy, exhaustion, or compassion.

When a person cries with emotion, they may have more tears than the tear drainage system can handle. Because of this, tears flow from the eyes and sometimes from the nose.

The tissue around the eyes can absorb tears, making the area swollen.

Blood vessels dilate when a person cries, causing redness or discoloration around the eyes.

While many of the tips for reducing puffiness also apply to treating flushing and discoloration, specialty eye drops that reduce color can be purchased.Serums and eye creams are also available.

Tears contain oil, water and mucus, each of which protects and nourishes the eyes. Excess tears flow into small drainage channels in the eyelids, but when these elements become unbalanced, dry eyes can occur.

Treatments for dry eye include over-the-counter artificial tear solutions, which may also be preservative-free.

When at home, do not forget to blink regularly, especially when working at the computer for a long time.Wearing sunglasses in bright sunlight can provide additional protection.

There are many home remedies that can reduce eye puffiness after crying, but finding the right method can be a trial and error process.

If the swelling persists for a long period of time, it may be worth seeking medical advice.

Regular skin care and a healthy diet are the best steps for overall eye care.

Swollen eyelid | Causes, treatments and images

What are eyelids made of?

Your eyelids are designed to protect the eyes and protect the surface of the eye (especially the cornea, which is the transparent part of the eye above the iris and pupil) from drying out.

Each eyelid is made up of thin skin (with some pads of fatty tissue), muscle, and a piece of thick, fibrous material in the shape of an eyelid called the tarsal plate. These tarsal plates contain the meibomian glands, which produce an oily material that helps lubricate the eyes and eyelids. The inside of each eyelid is lined with an inner layer of the conjunctiva, a smooth translucent membrane that covers the inner lids and the outer surface of the white of the eye. The conjunctiva is then reflected back into the eye, so there is no GAP at the edge of your eyelid that could cause you to lose your contact lens!

The upper eyelid includes all of the skin from the edge of the eyelid to the eyebrow, and the lower eyelid ends where the thicker skin of the cheek begins.

Anatomy of the eye

When you look at an object, you see it, because light is reflected from the object and enters your eye….

Causes of a swollen eyelid

Inflammation (due to allergies, infection or injury), infection and trauma can cause the eyelids to swell. In some cases, swelling of the eyelid may be the only symptom, but in other cases, the eyelid may also be red, itchy, gritty, or painful.


Chalazion causes induration or localized edema in the eyelid, although it can cause swelling of the entire eyelid, especially if it is inflamed or infected.Chalazion occurs when one of the meibomian (or tarsal) glands on the eyelid becomes blocked, resulting in a small (2-8 mm) fluid-filled edema (cyst). Chalazion is more common in the upper eyelid. It is usually not a red, itchy, or painful condition. Learn more about chalazion cysts.

Eye with chalazic lesion of the upper eyelid

Barley is a common painful eyelid problem in which a small infection develops at the base of the eyelash that becomes swollen and red along with the surrounding edge of the eyelid.It looks like a purulent spot. However, infection and inflammation often spreads back to the eyelid, causing the entire eyelid to swell. It is usually red, swollen, and sometimes mildly sore. Learn more about barley infections.

Outer barley
Upper eyelid barley
Ectropion and entropion

Ectropion occurs when part or all of the lower eyelid is turned outward from the eye. A curl occurs when the lower eyelid is turned towards the eye, causing the eyelashes to rub against the front of the eye.The eyelids can sometimes become inflamed and slightly swollen, although this is usually not so dramatic and they usually do not redden or hurt. Learn more about ectropion and entropion.

Blepharitis means inflammation of the eyelids. This makes the eyes and eyelids sore and grains of sand. They are often swollen, pinkish-red, and slightly swollen, especially around the edges of the eyelids. Blepharitis can be an unpleasant and recurring condition, sometimes associated with other skin conditions such as rosacea and seborrheic dermatitis.Learn more about blepharitis.

Conjunctivitis is an inflammation or infection of the conjunctiva, which is a smooth, shiny, translucent membrane that covers the white of the eye (sclera.) And the lower side of the eyelid. It can be caused by allergies and sensitivities (for example, to products applied to the eyes) or infection.

The main symptoms of conjunctivitis are redness of the eye, as well as a gritty feeling and mild soreness.Because conjunctivitis affects the lower part of the eyelids, it can make the eyelids swollen and slightly red, either because the infection spreads to the eyelid or because the eyelid becomes inflamed or allergic to an infection. See separate brochures Allergic Conjunctivitis and Infectious Conjunctivitis.

Infection of the eyelid skin

Any infection of the eyelid skin causes noticeable swelling with redness, itching and soreness. The infection can also spread to the eyelids from other parts of the face.

Skin infections include cellulitis, impetigo and erysipelas, which are different types of skin infections that affect different levels of the skin. The likelihood of developing a skin infection is higher if, for any reason, the integrity of the skin is compromised. It could be an insect bite, injury, or another condition that affects the skin near the eye, such as eczema, chickenpox, or shingles.

Sinusitis is usually caused by a bacterial or viral infection, although it can also be caused by allergies.Sinusitis that affects the sinuses just below the eyes can cause puffiness around the eyes and affect the eyelids. The eyelids are usually not red, painful, or itchy. See the separate Sinusitis brochure.

Allergic swelling of the eyelids

An allergy occurs when your body reacts to a foreign substance (called an allergen), producing chemicals that cause swelling, redness and itching. Swelling of the eyelid caused by an allergic reaction can be quite significant as the tissue of the eyelid stretches and tends to be quite “reactive” to allergic irritants.The eyelids can be allergic to a variety of triggers, including:

  • Natural substances such as pollen, pet hair, and organic dust.
  • Chemicals such as shampoo, makeup, eye drops and contact lens solution.
  • Infectious agents such as viruses and bacteria (therefore sometimes they can cause infection AND allergy at the same time).

Allergic eyelid edema is often very severe. The eyelids may feel tight and even so swollen that you cannot open your eyes.Over time, excess fluid in the eyelids tends to sink downward by gravity, filling the lower eyelid area to the top of the cheek, causing large bags under the eyes.

Angioedema (sometimes called angioedema)

This is a skin reaction, usually allergic, that tends to cause marked swelling of the skin, sometimes with itching. It mainly affects the eyelids and face, less often the lining of the windpipe (which can make breathing difficult), as well as the arms and legs.


James Heilman, M.D., own work), via Wikimedia Commons

Angioedema is often allergic. Usually, allergies are to something you ate, medication, something that has gotten under your skin (usually an insect bite), or something you have touched, such as latex. It can sometimes be non-allergic and caused by extreme temperatures or infections. In rare cases, it can be a hereditary disorder.See separate brochure Angioedema.


Anaphylaxis or anaphylactic shock is a medical emergency. It is an extreme and common allergic reaction that affects most of your body’s systems. It can include severe swelling of the eyelids, which can be an early warning sign, although this is not the most important symptom. Anaphylaxis can cause fainting, shortness of breath, and collapse, while anaphylaxis tends to come on quickly, with full effects sometimes occurring within minutes and usually within an hour of symptoms.Occasionally, anaphylactic reactions to food can occur more than an hour after a meal, but this is not common. If you have noticeable eyelid swelling but no other obvious developing symptoms, you are unlikely to develop anaphylaxis. See separate leaflet titled Anaphylaxis.

Eyelid irritation

The eyelids may become swollen, swollen and red just because they are irritated by sand, dust, fire or cigarette smoke, without a true allergic reaction. Your eyes will usually also be red and watery.

Sunburn of the eyelid

Sunburn of the eyelid is easy, especially if you fall asleep while lying in the sun. The eyelids will be swollen, red, and painful, but you will likely also have a sunburn on your face, making the diagnosis obvious. Sunglasses protect your eyelids from sunburn.

Fluid retention due to other medical conditions

Fluid can collect throughout the body if you retain fluid – a condition called edema. Although fluid retention is often seen in the fingers, around the lips and lower face, around the feet and ankles, and in the lower back, you may first notice it on the eyelids due to the fact that it affects the appearance of your face….

Fluid retention

Klaus D. Peter (Own work), via Wikimedia Commons

Fluid retention and tissue edema of this type can occur due to generalized allergic reactions (see below) or due to the fact that you retain fluid due to medications or a medical condition such as heart failure or preeclampsia (a condition associated with pregnancy).

Intravenous fluid as part of treatment can sometimes cause swelling of the face and eyelids, especially if you need to inject a lot of fluid quickly (eg due to dehydration).This is especially likely if you are unhealthy and lying flat so that excess fluid tends to accumulate on your face and eyelids and has not yet dispersed evenly. However, the generalized edema caused by treatment is more often an allergic reaction than an “expected” reaction of this kind.

Injury of the eyelid and bruise under the eye

Any direct injury to the eyelid results in swelling and bruising, and the swelling often becomes much worse the next day. A bruise under the eye can be caused by direct injury to the eyelid, but it usually also results from a blow to the nose or forehead.Blowing your nose often leads to bruising under the eyes on both sides, and cosmetic surgery on your nose or face can do the same.

Bruise under the eye

Loose eyelid skin means that blood can easily accumulate in this area after an injury, and swelling will follow where blood collects. with the eye, the swelling gradually decreases, and the bruise goes through several stages before disappearing.After that, it may take several weeks until the swelling completely disappears. See the separate brochure, How to Treat Eye Injuries.

Head Injury

A small but important addition to the black eye information is that a serious head injury that fractures the base of the skull can cause swelling of two black eyes, sometimes called “raccoon eyes.” See Separate Brochure Head Injuries.

Raccoon Eyes

Face, nose, or eyelid surgery

Eyelid surgery sometimes performed to correct volvulus or ectropion (seeAbove), or for cosmetic purposes, is an example of intentional damage to the eyelids that causes bruising and swelling. The eyelids after the procedures can be so swollen that they are not visible for several days. See separate brochure Eyelid Surgery.

Swollen eyelids and bruising are also the result of other operations on the nose and lower face, because blood – and swelling – from these procedures tends to seep under the skin of the face where it can easily accumulate, including the eyelids. The bruising and swelling can be severe and may take several weeks to disappear completely.

After crying

Most people will notice swelling of the eyelids after crying emotionally, especially if it is prolonged. This is because the eyelids tend to absorb some of the extra tears, which leads to temporary swelling.

Chemical irritation and burns

Certain chemicals can irritate the eyelids, causing them to swell. This can happen with some makeup products and soaps. Many people are aware of the irritation and swelling of the eyelids caused by chlorine in swimming pools.Tear gas, sometimes used to disperse crowds, causes swelling and inflammation of the eyelids, although painful and watery eyes are the main symptoms of exposure.

Certain chemicals can cause serious injury to the eyelids, ranging from swelling and pain. Causes include some household chemicals, such as oven cleaners, which contain strong alkali that you can transfer to your eyelids by rubbing your eyes or that you get a “kickback” from the sprayer.

If you suspect chemical damage to the eyelids or eyes, you should rinse them as thoroughly as possible. Moisten them with 20 liters of water directly from the tap, holding running water on your open eye or eyes for 5-10 minutes before seeking medical attention. See the separate brochure, How to Treat Eye Injuries.

How to get rid of bags on the upper eyelids and dark circles

Bags on the eyelids are a common condition that results from aging, sun damage and genetic factors.This usually happens when the normal fat around the eyes begins to squeeze forward, causing a bulge in the overlying skin. Excess skin can begin to sag, making the eyelids feel heavy. Blepharoplasty is a procedure that removes excess skin and fat around the eyes to improve their appearance.

Blepharoplasty is usually performed in an office or outpatient surgery setting. After intravenous (IV) sedation, the procedure takes less than one hour and can be done on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both.Tiny stitches are placed along the eyelid incisions to avoid scarring. The eyelids are a privileged area of ​​the body, which often leaves almost no scars after blepharoplasty.

There are two main risks in cosmetic eyelid surgery – bleeding and infection – be sure to stop taking blood thinners such as aspirin, baby aspirin, ibuprofen, motrin, Plavix, Coumadin, vitamin E, fish oil and others to help reduce the risk significant bleeding after surgery.To make sure there is no infection, an antibiotic ointment is prescribed, which should be applied to the stitches until they are removed five to ten days after surgery.

During the recovery period, rest and ice for the eyelids will help speed up the healing of this area. It is important to avoid heavy lifting, straining and bending, and heavy exercise should be avoided until stitches are removed.

Dark circles around the eyes can be the result of a combination of raised oil that casts a shadow or the overall texture of the skin.Blepharoplasty and / or filler injections with Restylane or Belotero are good options for patients who would like to improve the appearance of dark circles around their eyes.

North Shore Eye Care offers consultations for patients with eyelid bags or dark circles to discuss blepharoplasty and other options. We currently have several offices in Long Island that provide convenient access to oculoplastic surgery services. In many cases, commercial insurance companies or Medicare will cover a portion of the cost of eyelid surgery if vision deteriorates.With simple tests in the office, we can start discussing how best to fix eyelid bags and dark circles.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will my insurance pay for eyelid surgery?


often pays for eyelid surgery to improve vision. If your lower eyelids are drooping and causing eye irritation or watery eyes, your insurance company may pay to fix the problem. Insurance companies usually require that the medical need be documented with photographs that the insurance company reviews during the pre-authorization process.Some problems, such as bags on the lower eyelids, do not affect vision and are never covered by insurance companies. The Appearance Center will be happy to act as your advocate to help your insurance company pay for medically necessary procedures. Many of the procedures we perform are performed only to improve your appearance and these cosmetic procedures are not covered by your insurance company. One of the goals of consulting a doctor at a Facial Center is to determine which treatments may be useful to you and to inform you of the costs associated with those treatments.

Can the drooping of the lower eyelids, which causes eye irritation, be eliminated at the same time as cosmetic eyelid surgery?

Yes. It is very common for patients to undergo surgery to improve function at the same time as cosmetic surgery. The part of the surgery that is done to improve the function of the eyelids may be covered by your insurance company.

Is the lower eyelid skin incision made for lower eyelid blepharoplasty?

Usually no. In most patients with bags on the lower eyelid, the excess skin on the lower eyelids is practically absent.Sacks are usually due to excess fat or fat that is not properly positioned. If skin is removed from the lower eyelid when the excess skin cannot be removed, it pushes the lower eyelid down so that the whites of the eyes are visible between the lower eyelid and the colored part of the eye. This is called lower eyelid retraction. Pulling in the lower eyelid is actually a sign of aging, and creating this problem through surgery makes a person look older, it can also cause dry eyes and impair vision.Retraction of the lower eyelid when removing skin from the lower eyelids during blepharoplasty surgery is probably the most common complication of facial plastic surgery. Many celebrities who have been labeled “poor facelift” have actually had too much skin removed from their lower eyelids. The next time you see a celebrity who has been labeled “poor facelift” or who doesn’t look like herself after facelift surgery, look at the lower eyelids for signs of lower eyelid retraction.In most cases, retraction of the lower eyelid can be avoided by not making an incision through the skin of the lower eyelid or removing the skin from the lower eyelid.

I have wrinkles and changes in the texture of my lower eyelid skin. Can’t this be fixed by removing the skin from the lower eyelids?

Patients often have wrinkles or changes in the texture of the skin of the lower eyelids. Texture changes cannot be improved by removing the skin from the eyelids without causing the eyelids to retract, and can often be safely improved by performing TCA chemical peels at the same time as lower eyelid blepharoplasty.

Is the removal of skin from the lower eyelids ever justified?

Doctors of the Cosmetology Center remove the skin from the lower eyelids in less than 5% of patients who have undergone blepharoplasty of the lower eyelids. This is done when there is too much excess skin on the lower eyelid that cannot be tightened with chemical peels.

I have never had eyelid surgery and have drooping lower eyelids with white spots between the lower eyelid and the colored part of the eye. Can I have lower eyelid cosmetic blepharoplasty?

This is a common situation.With age, the lower eyelids become loose and, in addition to removing the bags from the lower eyelid, the eyelid can be tightened horizontally to reduce drooping of the lower eyelid. The current lower eyelid tightening procedure was actually developed by Dr. McCann.

Where is the incision made to correct the bags on the lower eyelids?

An incision is made through the pink tissue on the back of the lower eyelids. Using this incision site, the surgeon can remove excess fat from the lower eyelids or move the fat from the lower eyelid into a dark circle on the lower eyelid.This incision is hidden behind the lower eyelid and is not visible as it heals.

Does lower eyelid blepharoplasty simply involve removing fat from the bulges on the lower eyelids?

It is often more difficult. A well-done cosmetic eyelid surgery should correct all the problems that have arisen as a result of the aging of the face, so that the eyelid looks more youthful. In some patients, excess fat is observed only on the lower eyelids. This is usually not a change in aging, as was first noted back in high school.This tendency to form eyelid bags at a young age tends to be inherited. In these patients, fat removal alone can often solve the whole problem. However, in most patients, bags on the lower eyelids appear as a result of the aging of the face, and in this situation, the changes that need to be addressed are more difficult than simply removing fat from the lower eyelids. Simply removing fat from the lower eyelids of an aging face can lead to cavities, and hollow lower eyelids will make a person look older rather than younger.

What is the connection between dark circles on the lower eyelids, bags on the lower eyelids and aging of the face?

A number of changes can occur in the lower eyelid, causing bags and dark circles. A young, normal lower eyelid is full, short, without a dark circle underneath. As the face ages, fat from the cheek and lower eyelid separates. This is due to the cheek dropping or dropping with age, which makes the lower eyelid longer and allows the fatty eyelid to move forward. This creates an empty space between the fat of the lower eyelids and the fat of the cheek at the edge of the bone along the lower eyelid.The situation can be described as two mountains separated by a valley. The first mountain is the bulging fat of the lower eyelid. The second mountain is the drooping cheek; the valley is between them. We are usually in the upper light, so the bulging fat of the lower eyelid creates a shadow in the cavity, making it look like a dark circle at the intersection of the cheek and lower eyelid. This can be verified by illuminating the lower eyelid with a flashlight while looking in a mirror. If the flashlight is pointed directly at the lower eyelid, the dark circle almost disappears in most Caucasian patients because the lower eyelid is no longer covered by shadow.Some colored patients have actual pigment deposition in this area, which will still be seen in the flashlight test.

How can bags and dark circles be corrected with lower eyelid blepharoplasty?

The operation must be adapted to the patient. In most patients, the best result is achieved if the drooping lower eyelid fat is transferred rather than removed. In some patients, the result will be even better if the lowered cheek or midface is lifted.

What is fat transposition?

Fat transfer involves the movement of fat from the eyelid to the cavity between the cheek and eyelid; in other words, fat from the lower eyelid moves downward to fill the dark circle.

Where is the incision made to lift the sagging cheek?

This varies from patient to patient, but can be applied to the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or behind the temporal hairline. You should discuss this with your doctor.

What do you need to recover from eyelid surgery?

Recovery depends on the specific procedure performed and each patient.Typically, eyelid surgery results in bruising and swelling of the eyelids. We ask patients to plan a stay at home on the day of surgery and two extra days. During these early days, ice is applied to the eyelids to reduce bruising and swelling. After the third day, most patients can drive and move around without much difficulty. We ask patients to avoid heavy lifting and exercise for two weeks after the procedure. Most patients will wear sunglasses for 2-3 weeks to hide bruising and swelling.The Appearance Center will provide you with detailed written instructions before your procedure.

Can eyelid surgery cause complications?

Yes. All medical procedures involve certain risks. You should discuss the risk of complications with your doctor prior to surgery so that you can make an informed decision about what to do next. Many patients choose the Aesthetic Appearance Center for their surgery because they believe that the risk of complications in cosmetic eyelid surgery can be reduced if the procedure is performed by a surgeon who has specialized training in eyelid plastic surgery who is experienced in performing these procedures….

10 ways to remove bags under the eyes – Colorescience

Bags under the eyes appear due to slight swelling or swelling under the lower eyelid. The tissues around the eyes are very thin and delicate, and as you get older, the fat that supports your eyes moves to the lower eyelids, causing puffiness and swelling.

Exercise helps your body stay strong and flexible, and can be used to strengthen the muscles around the eyes.Slow facial exercises can help tighten and tone your muscles so that your face doesn’t look tired and fatigued.

Your eyelids are part of a ring of muscle tissue that controls the movement of the eyelids. You can reduce the appearance of bags over your eyebrows by squinting your lower eyelids. Gently place your index fingers on the outer corners of your eyes and your middle fingers on the inner corners, then raise and lower your lower eyelids. Repeat this exercise 10 times a day to strengthen your eyelids and reduce sagging.

  1. Sleeping on your back

When you sleep face down, fluid and fat gradually move to the lower eyelids. To avoid the effects of gravity, sleep face up to avoid fluid accumulation. Also consider supporting your head with an extra pillow if it does not interfere with your sleep.

Lack of sleep can also aggravate bags under the eyes.

  1. Quit Smoking

Smoking is bad for you for a number of reasons, one of which is your skin health.The chemicals in cigarettes and the smoke they produce can dehydrate the skin and cause premature aging. The thin skin around the eyes is especially vulnerable, and smoking can make the eyelids look irritated, swollen and saggy. If you are a non-smoker, try to avoid second-hand smoke as much as possible to avoid irritating your skin.

  1. Practice proper sun protection

Prolonged sun exposure damages the skin, promotes premature aging and causes dehydration.A gentle mineral-based sunscreen and UV-protected sunglasses can help preserve your eyes and prevent fine lines and wrinkles from forming.

  1. Use cold compress

Cold compress reduces swelling. Buy a cold compress from your local drugstore, or make your own by covering the ice cube bag with a cloth or freezing two spoons. Place the compress on the bags under the eyes for a few minutes or until it reaches room temperature to reduce puffiness.

How to get rid of bags under the eyes, according to professionals

How to get rid of bags under the eyes and pesky dark circles can seem like one of those perplexing skin conditions that never seem to go away. “By the age of 25, your production of collagen and elastin decreases, resulting in loose, flabby and swollen skin,” says Dr. Natasha Sandy.

Oculo-facial plastic surgeon Dr. Chanev Janniton explains that “under the surface of the skin there are layers of muscle, connective tissue, ligaments and fat that contribute to the changes we see from the outside.” And while it is tempting to just start energetic applying the latest under eye cream (and this is one of the solutions!), Dr. Jeanniton adds that “we need to approach the problem from a more holistic point of view.”

Here are 13 skin experts to get rid of bags under the eyes.

Check for major health concerns

Believe it or not, many health problems can cause bags under the eyes, so it is important to check with your doctor to make sure that bags under your eyes are not associated with a more serious problem. “In particular, it is important to make sure that thyroid function is balanced and that sinus dysfunction is not to blame, says Dr. Jeanniton. “These conditions cause inflammation, which can manifest as puffiness under the eyes.Seeking treatment for an underlying medical condition is the first step towards removing puffy eyes. ” While your menstrual cycle is not a “health issue”, it is important to consider that your period can also play a huge role in under-eye puffiness.

Improve Your Diet

Salty foods are “common culprits for water retention,” says Dr. Jeanniton, and water retention is one factor that can affect the appearance of under-eye skin. “If you have a lot of salt in your body, the water will move towards the place where there is more salt in order to reduce its concentration.”Collagen supplements, any vitamin A foods such as carrots and peppers, and foods rich in vitamin C help counteract this because they are anti-inflammatory and water soluble. Pineapples contain bromelain, “which prevents swelling and puffiness.” adds Dr. Sandy. “You can take these foods throughout the day as vitamins in juices or as whole foods.”

Avoid alcohol

“Fluid retention can be caused by excessive alcohol consumption,” explains Dr. Jeanniton.“If you are suffering from this, you definitely want to reduce your alcohol consumption,” adds Dr. Sandy. If you are going to drink, drink any alcohol with plenty of water.

Allergy Factor

“A lot of people are allergic and don’t even realize it,” says Sandy. “Even if there is no itching associated with allergies, or even if you use contact lenses, it can sometimes irritate the eyes and cause fluid to build up under the eyes, giving the appearance of puffiness.”After consulting a doctor, she suggests antihistamines such as Zyrtec and Claritin for those with seasonal allergies to reduce the bags under the eyes caused by allergies. Antihistamine eye drops are also helpful when it comes to bags and puffiness around the eyes.

Hilma Indoor / Outdoor Support


“Rest is important overall because you reduce stress and therefore cortisol levels,” which ultimately helps prevent bags under the eyes, the doctor said.Sandy says. “Resting not only gives your mind time to recover and rejuvenate, but it does the same for your body. Rest has the same effect on your under eyes. ” If you are having trouble sleeping, know that you are not alone – and there are a number of natural remedies worth trying.

Manage Stress

Stress levels affect cortisol levels, which in turn increases the appearance and intensity of puffiness and bags under the eyes. “This is why people with high stress levels develop acne,” the doctor said.Sand notes. Meditation is one approach to stress reduction, just like exercise.

Stay hydrated

“Fluid retention is usually more the cause of puffiness under the eyes, but dehydration can also matter,” says Dr. Jeanniton. “Dehydration can worsen the appearance of bags under the eyes due to increased exposure to excess salt, alcohol, or poor sleep.
