3 days ago I've rubbed my 'right' eye because it was itchy, so naturally without thinking I would just rub it until my eye got red and bloodshot when I looked in the mirror. It went away few hours later but around my eye (not on my eye but the side and under the eye lid area.) started appearing red 'irritated'. I washed it with cold water and went to bed and hoped it went away the next morning. I was wrong, it appeared puffy in the morning where if you could imagine it was puffy enough to create 'fake' wrinkle lines under the eye.
So I've tried using "Polysporin", 3 times a day, applying it to the affected areas. It seemed to help a tiny bit but overall it's still there. I've also tried ice compress today not sure if that did anything; Also tried the "ratio-Prednisolone", drops today nothing changed.
I'm out of ideas, I hope if anyone knows anything please don't hesitate to post here. If you require anymore details please tell me I will try my best to provide the information. If I remember anything else I will post it.
I am in fact seeing my G.P. on Monday, and maybe he will refer me to an ophthalmologist.
For this following weekend what can I possibly try to alleviate this problem or even get rid of it. I just applied 'Polysporin' again and I noticed it actually feels irritated/sort of stings for a few minutes and then goes away.
Sorry for being persistent on the matter since you've already suggested that I go see a Doctor about it. I just want to exhaust all other options in the meantime.
Apply warm compress on those areas, diluted baby shampoo cleaning will also alleviate your problems.
Next time when you get itchy feeling near eye regions do not rub instead apply some fresh sterile honey there, itchiness will go instantly without any worry of side effects like from corticosteroid drops.
So yesterday night I washed out the medication I've used on the areas and left it dry. Now this morning it looks better, the puffiness seems to have gone a bit down too leaving only one 'fake' wrinkle line as opposed to 2 under my eye as illustrated in the pic still some redness. But if this is truly "Pink Eye" then it should go away without doing anything in a matter of days right.
Again I can't offer anything to you but my thanks for helping me.
The swelling today seems to have gone away, but it is still a bit red in the illustrated areas in the pic.
It is now presenting dry skin around there oand feels a bit sensitive. So the question is, do I still leave it as is and wait or do I start applying something to it to help with the dryness/sensitivity to possibly speed it up.
Cleaning is all enough to speed up, avoid all medications, cream etc on these regions as eye is very sensitive to chemicals present in these, also many of these are not that much sterile for use with eyes.
