How do I make a bug bite on my eye go down faster?
By Jillianna from Riverside, CA
There's a limit to what you can put on your eyelids, as they are very delicate, when I have had allergic itchy reactions, I have used health food store Calendula gel & very cold black iced tea also works to relieve swelling.
Use ice in a washcloth to help take down swelling and itch. Take some Benadryl to help also.
I use compresses of cooled chamomile tea. I keep it in the fridge for extra relief. It really helps with the itchiness.

I just got a bug bite on my eyelid; what do I do?
By Jake from TX
I did a search for you and a doctor told someone to do this:
Apply Benadryl cream or generic with cortizone in it. Use ice, put in a facecloth and hold for awhile to relieve swelling. (07/15/2010)
