Health Tip: Treating a Black Eye

(HealthDay News) -- Black eyes are common among kids who play sports. Most cases can be treated with self-care at home.

The American Academy of Ophthalmology suggests how to safely treat a black eye:

  • Use an ice pack for 20 minutes at a time, once every hour, to reduce swelling and ease pain.
  • Use a bag of frozen vegetables or ice cubes wrapped in cloth if an ice pack is not available.
  • Do not use raw meat on a black eye. The bacteria on raw meat raises the risk of infection.
  • Avoid contact sports until the injury gets better.
  • If swelling and pain don't improve in a few days, see your doctor.
