puffy eyes

elli ate "something" and got herself into big trouble last week...we kept interogating asking her "what did you eat, what did you eat?"

all our deductions came to the preservatives that was in the pop corn, which popo bought at cold storage!! you know those pre-packed type not the ones freshly made by the stalls...arrggghhhh the trouble it caused....so next time must be 100 times more careful...u see the pic also your heart cringed! my poor girl...so worried she was screaming and crying that it was painful, soooo worried her eyes may go blind! so bengkak man! never have she had such an eye-bloating experience.

rushed her to the clinic...asked the doc if she can give her a jab to get rid of the swell, thankfully after checking thoroughly, she doesn't need any jab. elli did not have any hives or rashes marks and was breathing normally, so her airways was not constricting...therefore not soooo serious but still serious, eventhough not life threatening (doc's exact words).
gave her polaramin and steroids...until she's drowsy...then hid all the mirrors...for obvious reasons.

anyway, thankfully she is back to her normal beautiful self again.

day 1 - swollen until cannot open!!






morning of day 2 - right eye bigger, left eye still "not really there yet"



morning of day 2 - back to old self, can play and kid around, very happy today, not going to school

evening of day 2 - left eye opened half-way ledi...

OMG!!!! that's terrible! so heartbreaking to see her suffering like that. so what is she allergic to? MSG in the corn packaging? so glad she's ok now.

Lian said...

Yes, this is definitely one of those time where it's okay to panic. Glad there were no further complications. Hope you figure out for sure what was the culprit.

ayooo poor elli....aunty sayangz...

wen said...

poor girl... but what actual ingredient in the pop corn that caused her like that?

NomadicMom said...

Poor Girl....can't imagine those packaged popcorn can cause her eyes to bengkak like that.

On second thoughts... I did have a very bad allergic reaction to preservatives used in the fish at "Manhattan Fish Market". My eyes were all RED, head dizzy, rashes all over, and Shortness of Breath. Had to be admitted to hospital. Couldn't drive as was soooo dizzy.

So...don't "Main Main" leh...

Health Freak Mommy said...

Aiyoyo.... that's really bad! How did you know that it's the preservative in the pop corn that caused her eyes to swell? Did you bring her for a blood test previously to check what she's allergic to? Poor girl!
BTW, how much did yr Photobook cost you? Feel like having one done for my girls too.
