    do you have any neosporin? you can apply some to her eye around the outer edges. Also try some saline solution if you have some, or make some using warm water and a little salt..

    Is it the external skin that is swollen or the internal tissue?If its external you can use neosporin or triple antibiotic if its internal you need an eye ointment like Terramycin
