Red eye Episcleritis

For 6 months I had red eye and with prednisone and drops it was cleared up.
Now for 3 months my eyes were clear until Saturday and I got stressed out.
Both eyes were red but the right eye does hurt and wondering if stress would raise the pressure in my eye cause the red eyes.Janine

Dear nin77ca,

I would recommend that you seek the care of an eyeMD to determine the cause of the redness and pain.

Red eye episcleritis was back and I have come to a conclssion.All the auto immune problem started after I started using a hormone replacement gel.Do you think the estrogel could have caused some of the painful Scheritis and episcleritis?
