My son is 11 and for the past 2 years we have battled this condition. He has been to an optometrist and we know it is not his actual eye. We had a CT scan done and found nothing. We have went to an ENT doctor and he was put on nasal spray and givin prednisone for when it occurs. We did allergy testing and nothing came up for that. But still to this day we have no diagnosis. We never know when it is going to happen and it seems to be getting worse. It is always his left eye. You can actually see it starting to swell and within an hour it is swollen completely shut. This time underneath his eye was also swollen. The swelling used to go down within 12 hours and now it has been about 48 hours and it is still not completely down. It usually occurs either when he has been real active outside or severals times when he has gotten poked in the eye etc. He has had to miss school, sporting events and many other things due to this condition and it is just frustrating that we really have no answers for what it is or what is causing it. Or really what to do to treat it. Right now he just started taking zyrtec and prednisone. I'm not sure if the zyrtec has really done anything for it. I am trying to be patient but any information would be greatly appreciated!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
