My daughter is 6 years old. 5 days ago, I noticed that her left upper eyelid is slightly swollen. When I checked her, I noticed that she also have an enlarged lymph node on the left side of her neck. No fever at the time.
Next day, the symptoms continue the same. So I took her to the doctor. He checked he said It could be a virus infection. Gave us an eye drop.
Later that evening she started to get fever. Today for 3 days, she continue having fever and the same swollen eyelid and enlarged lymph node.
Her eye is not red and is not watering at all. She also does not complain of any pain in her eye. What could this be
It is very common in children and is rarely serious. The only complications may occur because of the high fever. It goes away in a few days. It may appear at any time of the year. The treatment consists of bed rest, fever reducing medications and clear fluids.
However, it is contagious and may be spread contact with an infected person's respiratory secretions or saliva, by sharing the same cups.
You may decide to see a doc right away to see what it really is or watch for the symptoms and see a doc if the temperature rises.
Hi there I am reading your posts about this interesting topic and I have to say that my friend's daughter had a swollen eyelid For me as a parent caring about my children is the most important thing in a life. My friend go to hospital with her and doctors told him that an issue is not dangerous, but they gave them some creme and told them that she has eat more healthier, actually to change her diet, because problem was probably due to low immunity. She started feeling better in few days and problem was completely resolved in two weeks

I'm on the Internet right now searching. I feared Pink Eye when I first saw it...I just saw the movie Knocked Up but I haven't found fever as a symptom of that...
