Any advice on prawn allergy? My 5 yo boy is having puffy/swollen eyes due to his food allergy to prawn. I have given him manuka joney and lemon juice to help reduce the puffy eyes. My question is: will the puffy eyes go away by itself after a while? It's been 3 hours since he has had the puffy eyes. His PD is already closed so can't bring him to PD today. :(

allergic reactions even for food is quiet serious. you may see fluffy eyes but you wouldnt know if theres something else swollen. must see doctor asap my lo had allergic rèaction to chicken pox vaccine pd gave oral antihistamine in 5 mins he was ok.

I have not tried any home remedies when it comes to allergy. Allergy symptoms can start out small then can quickly worsen. I would advice you to bring him the PD soon as you can.

Besides prawn was there anything else which he consumed? I tend to get puffy eyes as a allergic reaction. You may want to take him to the doctors or hospital if you are unsure.

Have you tried giving him zyrtec first? It's anti histamine. Do monitor for more signs. If he seems breathless, please go to emergency quick
