There are two standard home remedies that have always worked well for me.

1) Rest for about thirty minutes with a slice of cold cucumber on each eyelid.

2) Thoroughly wet some teabags and then squeeze the water out -- then place them over your lids and rest for about thirty minutes.

Also, cold packs work. Drink a lot of water and juice and that will help you rehydrate and flush out any toxins.

Hope you are feeling better today...

Try to get teabags with caffeine, If I remember correctly the caffeine is the reason that it helps reduce the swelling. Like Lipton teabags are good. I've done this a few times and it works pretty good.

*hugs* sorry you had a bad night last night.
