My friend today had swelling under the bottomthe century of the right eye, usually he always has a small fold there, but for some reason it has become deeper. Swelling small, similar to the pouch under the eye. Yesterday there was no swelling. The consistency is soft, the skin over it is of a normal flesh color, there is no redness. There are no secretions from the eye, the skin does not itch, no rashes and no complaints.
At first I thought it was blepharitis, but bysymptoms and objective data does not correspond to it. Maybe it's something like a hygroma, which sometimes appears in the wrist area of ​​the hands from the inner surfaces? Although in the wrist area there are synovial sheaths of tendons, and on their face there are no. What causes such puffiness under the eye?

Chupakabra. watch, maybe tomorrow the picture will change. The initial symptoms of inflammation can be blurred. If not, it's better to show the oculist. Still, you do not have to joke with your eyes.
Still so the allergic reaction can be shown. It's hard to imagine until you see it yourself.
Then another thought occurred to me: on which side does your friend sleep? If on the right, then it can be and problems with the kidneys. Asymmetric swelling under the eyes in such cases is rare, but in the initial stage is possible.
