It’s been about a year now that I have been getting extremely swollen eyes. It it all started with hot showers. I thought I was allergic to my shampoos or body products first.
After taking a shower my eyes would swell up really badly like an allergic reaction, and at times they would turn really dark, as if someone had punched my eyes. I would take a piriton to reduce the swelling. My doctor gave me fexofenodine 180mg, so now I take these when I’m faced with a reaction. But the swelling takes a few says to completely disappear.
Recently, I went on holiday and during mid day we were walking a lot and my eyes became extremely swollen. They were swollen from top to bottom and I could barely keep the eyes open. It was scary!
Now I realize in really hot weather when I’m doing a physical activity such as gardening my eyes swell up again quite badly.
This is really affected the quality of my life. I have a holiday booked in two months, I feel like cancelling it, because it will involve group activities and be based outside in the sun.
I’m looking to get married soon, but just think is there even a point my potential spouse may no longer want to consider me when he realizes I get these random swollen eyes every month or so!
Is anyone else facing similar symptoms of swollen eyes?
