I have pinkeye that was not healed for a month, even though I was treated by a prescried antibiotic eyedrop by my family doctor.
At the begining, both eyes were very red, and when I tried to put the contact lens back, it irritated immediately and caused severe pain for a few minutes, which subsided eventually. I never had wore the contact lens since then. During the antibiotic treatment for a month, they were improved to an extent that it now hardly causes any irritation or pains, and they never had swallen or nor there had been no affect on my eye vision and that the redness became very minimum. However, they have not been healed completely.
I am waiting for an appointment with an eye specialist, which is a two-month long waiting list. I am worried that during this period, my eyes get worse, now that the doctor stoped prescribing me with the antibiotic drop. Is there anyway of dealing with this problem until I get to see the eye specialist? I am also using the over-the-counter eye drop, which seems to be effective to remove the redness to some extent.
p.s. I continued to use the makeup power, which may have been contaminated with the bacteria. Now I got rid of all the makeup and facial cream. Would that help?
