What to do for the burning sensation below the eye in child?

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here...My 12 year old daughter has a red burning sensation under her left eye and on her cheek. This happens on and off for her and symptoms go away. She has regular issues with stuffy nose and recently has acquired a cold complicating her stuffiness. Are these symptoms indicative of an sinus infection? Should she seek medical attention? Might she need antibiotics?

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

By what you say, I feel that it could be an allergic dermatitis or an urticaria. I feel that she might require anti allergic medication. Give her Benadryl syrup and if not better, then approach your pediatrician or physician.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Every couple of months I have a shimmering in my eyes, almost like when a fluorescent light is burning out that is about the best way to describe it and as I said it does not happen all the time. I wear my glasses for driving and reading but this sensation comes out of no where, it can happen if I am shopping, I have to sit down and just close my eyes and relax then after approx. 10-15 minutes it goes away. I know that there is such a thing as an eye migraine ???? The last time I had my eyes examined, the Dr. did not seem to be too concerned but you hear all kinds of horror stories, just curious. Thank you

I recently had one side of my nose cauterized. My doctor prescribed me aquaphor(petrolatum) ointment and neilmed sinus rinse. the second night after the cauterization, I rinsed my nose with the saline solution. it didn t work too well. i felt like a sponge absorving some of the saline solution although most of the solution did come out from the other nostril. But I spent the next three hours waking up because of a runny nose. but this mucus and blood secretion was very acidic or corrosive. almost like as if i had inhaled cayene powder. that same night i developed a flu like symptoms, with fever, headache, nasal congestion, sore throath, burned lips and tongue. then most of the syntoms vanished one day later except for the nasal congestion. i read somewhere else that i may have had a mucal purulent discharge from the mucus trapped since long time ago. yesterday i tried to do another sinus rinse but am afraid of getting the flu again. what should i do?

Hi, My daughter is 3 yrs 5 months old. she had adenoitis when she was 3 and was treated with anibiotics. However, since then, she is constantly having blocked nose, cough which at times is dry and other times productive. She was again suffering from blocked nose and snoring for the last 3 days so I gave her flomist spray. one puff in each nostril last night, which really helped to relieve the nose. For how many days can I give her the spray? Also is it safe?
