    Are you seeing any nasal drainage, coughing, sneezing, rattly or wheezy breathing? Is there any bad odor? Can you see any marks around the eye where she may have been pecked or stung? Mycoplasma (MG) and coryza are two respiratory diseases that can cause swelling around an eye with sticky drainage.
