    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Swollen eyelid

    My two year old woke up with a "black" eyelid yesterday morning. I thought she'd bumped it but it continued to swell throughout the day. Her eye is much more swollen today. Her actual eye is not red or goopy, it's just the tissue surrounding it. Should we wait or take her into the Dr.?

    Hello Anon -

    Please do give her doctor's office a call to let them know what's going on. Always better to be safe than sorry.

    Let us know what you find out, your experience may help out some other mommy's.
