For the past few months, I have noticed have had a discharge from my left eye upon waking up in the morning. This past week, I developed a sore spot on the skin on the outer corner of my left eye, that itches and burns. I am taking Benadryl, by the way. Yesterday when I woke up, my upper eyelid was red and swollen and scaly and there was swelling over to the inner corner of my eye. I had cataract surgery about a year and a half ago and have noticed that I have dry eye worse than before the surgery. I use Genteel eye drops as well as over the counter ointment before I go to sleep. My ophthalmologist is over two hours away so I haven't been able to see him yet. Is there any over the counter meds I could use until I see him? I am using the same makeup and cannot figure out what is causing this. I appreciate any help or advice.
