Treatment of bite in the eye: symptoms
At first the bite looks like a small dot of dark red color. Then the eyelids will swell. As a rule, the skin thus acquires a reddish shade. The person bitten by the midge feels a pretty strong pulse under the skin, usually accompanied by pain. Proteins blush.
Very often, due to the swelling of the eyelids, it is impossible to open the eye.

Treatment of bite in the eye: folk methods
If you have swollen eyes from a bite of midges, be sure to attach ice. One minute will be enough, but for a day this procedure is better to repeat 5 times.
Another great folk remedy is potatoes. You can simply apply it with a cut to the bitten place, and you can grate it and apply it to the eyelid. Hold for about half an hour. If you make such compresses throughout the day (5-6 times), the swelling can go for 24 hours.
Compresses with soda are also excellent. In 100 g of water stir one spoon (without top, tea) of soda. In the resulting solution, moisten the cotton pad and, without pressing, attach to the swollen place. Keep this kind of compress should be about 15 minutes, and do throughout the day - once every 2 hours.
To summarize, it is important to note that treatment of bite in the eye should be performed immediately after the symptoms begin to appear, otherwise the healing process may be delayed. In addition, if your condition has not improved after three days, be sure to see a doctor. However, even if the treatment was successful, and nothing else bothers you, a specialist should still visit because the remnants of the poison can lead to serious consequences.
