this is additional info from my last question i forgot to mention that my dr gave me 2.5 % hydrocortisone cream to use around my eyes to help with the inflammation and to continue with massage. day 3 of this regimen was when the pic's were taken and my eyes seemed more inflamed. i stopped the cream and massage and am taking a course of prednisone and it has made a world of difference. thank-you all for your time and reply's..i will wait longer before getting the steriod shots as i have improved alot !!

Persistent Inflammation After Upper/lower Bleph?
At one month following two recent surgeries, redness and inflammation would be anticipated. I would not do anything aggressive at this point. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

I would not place hydorcortosone cream near the eyes. I would only use ophthalmologic products in the area. You may need to be examined by an ophthalmologist if the condition persists.
