Swelling after topical cream

I would discontinue the topical cream. After 2 yrs, new onset swelling is much more likely from a new topical cream than from a filler. Best of luck.

Eye swellling 2 years after tear tough fillers?

Hello and thanks for your question. It is highly unlikely that there is any filler product still in your tear trough 2 years later. It is more likely that you are having an allergic reaction to the bee venom cream you are currently using, so I would discontinue that immediately. I am glad you have had your eye examined and have no other major medical issues. I hope it clears up and the swelling goes down soon.
