    swelling of eyes after crying
    Anon_60853 posted:
    Every time after I stop crying, my eyes will swell to the point of almost being shut. They dont swell right after I am done, but it takes some time. I cant seem to get the swelling down, I just let the swelling go down on its own. When they do swell I have a hard time seeing because they are almost closed shut. I dont know what it is, but I would like to find out.

    Sounds like you should not cry so much.

    Seriously, I would wonder if you have might have an allergy to something on your hands or eyelids or tissue that is being rubbed into your eyelids when you mop up your tears.

    Next time you cry (which I hope is a very long time from now), don't touch your eyes. See if your eyelids swell shut.
