Angry Swollen lower eyelids and sinus allergies

In June my lower eyelids became swollen within a week. They are not red or itchy just simply swollen. In April I was exposed to cats which I am allergic to and also was in a dust storm. I am allergic to spring allergens such as ragweed, pollen tree pollen, etc. This is November and my eyes are the same. Started allergy injections and have decided to see a dermatologist after seeing two opthlmologist which say I have no eye infection or disease nor do I have allergic conjuctivitus after taking a swab test. Have tried different eye drops that didn't help. I have heard Dermatologist sometimes prescibe Elidel ointment to reduce inflamation. Has anyone out there had this problem? I have taken tons of antihistamines with no help for the eyelids. If anyone has had a similar problem and has had relief from swollen eyelids please help!

Re: Swollen lower eyelids and sinus allergies

Oh my! I have never heard of a swab test for allergic conjunctivitis. It really sounds like allergies, so I'm suprised you don't have allergic conjunctivitiis. So have you tried prescription drops or only over-the-counter? Patanol works great for me. Have you been checked out for a sinus infection? Sometimes they can cause eye drainage when the sinuses around the eyes are infected.

I have no sinus infection they did a CT scan only had drainage. I have tried prescription drops Elstat, Optivar, Alrex with no help. How long did you have swollen eyelids and did Patanol make the swelling go away? I went two 3 opthlmologist and they all diagnosed allergy eyes but yet when the allergist did a swab for allergic conjunctivitis it showed I didn't have it. Thanks for your help and let me know more about your eyelid swelling please.
