Buck with swollen eye lid

Any ideas? Not runny or anything, doesn't look like pink eye. We're guessing a bug bite or something got under his eye lid.

Looks like a bug bite or maybe an injury to me.
Is there anything we can do to treat it? Or just leave it be?
You could give him some aspirin or banamine to help with swelling.

You could try to check under his eyelid to see if anything is under it.
Ok. I don't know if he would let us check, he's shy, and it is so swollen. I'll give him some asprin though. What is the dose?

Also- He has had an on going dry cough since summer. Not very often, but often enough for me to know it's not just a 'clearing my lungs' cough. Any ideas on that?
I would give benadryl as well...since it could be a bug bite it will help with the reaction and swelling..human adult dose
Thank you ladies :) I will see if the benadryl helps with the coughing as well. How much aspirin?
Somewhere on here should be the dose. I always have Banamine on hand so never use aspirin.
one adult aspirin should be good...
He could have gotten something stuck in his skin. Infection is a possibility as well. I would give him a dose of antibiotics as well, just to be on the safe side....

Poor little dude.
Wish you guys the best of luck! :)
