    :confused:The eye isn't red or swollen or weepy, just closed. I have been treating with hydrogen peroxide ( a little on a cotton ball and wiped over eye) and then antibiotic ointment. My question is, should I force the eye open to see if there is something irritating it or continue with what I am doing?[​IMG]

    Hydrogen Peroxide is not good. Try to find youself some Iodine or Betaodine and dilute it to wipe the eye. I would not force the eye open.
