Corneal Ulcer

I've had corneal ulcers for many years, always left eye, now in the right too.  Mine are caused by herpes.  I'm allergic to viroptic drops, valtrex works but has aggravated a string of GI problems.  Does anyone know of any other treatments or meds to try?  I woke up this morning and know I have the start of another ulcer.

See an Eye MD today. Other choices are famvir and acyclovir.

Depends on the size and location. Ask your pediatrician to see if it warrants a visit to an Ophthalmologist.
