swollen eyelids infant

Hi- My 4 1/2 month old infant was born 6 weeks premature in may. Since he was about a month old, his eyelids have been puffy and swollen beneath his eyes. Sometimes, the puffiness is better than others, but there are always bags under his eyes and it's not just sleep deprivation. The pediatrician and pediatric allergist say he is fine and has no allergies, but it doesnt look normal. He has been on calcarea carbonica for 3 days but we didnt see any improvement. Other symptoms that he has include-silent reflux-lots of gurgling, gas...If anyone has any remedies and/or suggestions, I would really appreciate it...Thanks...

Nat Phos 6x can help with your baby's gastric problem. Just 1 tablet dissolved in a teaspoonful of water can be given to him in the bottle, or mixed in milk.

calc carb is deep acting remedy and its too premature to judge its effectiveness within 3 days.

Was he administered arnica dose for the trauma?

I was giving him 30 c of calcarea carbonica 2x a day for 3 days...should I keep giving it to him or increase the c? he was given it not for the trauma but primarily for his reflux...Im most concerned about his swollen/puffy eyes-is there any other remedy-even topical treatment to try?
