infection

I went to the eye doc today and she couldnt see anything in my eye or any type of irritation but gave me antibiotics anyway. My eye is still driving me crazy as if something is in it. Did she miss something?
This is probably an infection that will require antibiotics. No natural remedy I know of that will treat that. You do not want to use human eye drops! You can buy an eye wash at the pet store and try gently wiping the eyes with warm water on a cloth. You don't want this to get worse or have the dog's vision compromised. It really should be checked by a Vet and I hope you can do that.

You need to see an optometrist or ophthalmologist to get antibiotics. You do not need to let an infection go untreated.
I found a small kitten yesterday and it appears to have an eye infection small drainage and barely opens it's eyes. Can I put triple antibiotic ointment around his eyes or do you recommend some other intervention.
But if this is a sign of infection why did the doctor only prescribe for the right eye? Is it dangerous to have redness in the eye?
Can my dogs eye infection be passed to humans ,also my wife is pregnant is she at risk?
Based on your description, it sounds like she had a corneal ulcer that has progressed into endophthalmitis, which is an infection involving the internal aspect of the eye. Unfortunately this is a very severe type of infection which has a guarded visual prognosis. She may need a surgical procedure to clear the infection depending on her level of vision.
I had acinetobacter infection for four months afterwards. Antibiotics did not help. I finally cleared the infection in my sinuses with alternative medicines. I have had swellings beneath both eyes, and discharge from both since the surgery. I have had a sty in one eye for over a year. My monocyte count has been consistently around 12-13. An opthlmologist has told me I do not have an eye infection. He says the discharge is just mucous. He has not seen it.
You may have infected your eye from the throat infection and it might be cleared by the Azithromycin if it is the same organism that is causing the problem. But usually they give you eye drops for an eye infection that have antibiotics in them, so I'm not sure if the oral med will care of the problem. You could also have an allergy, virus in the eye or have accidently got something else in your eye. Try eye drops and if it doesn't clear up in a day or two then see an eye doctor.
I woke up this morning and my eye is practically closed shut. Pretty sure its not a pimple. Can you give me any insight on why it might be. The eye is very tender and sore and the bump seems like its growing as we speak. Doctors office is closed so have to wait until tomorrow to see someone.
It now has spread almost to my eye. It is red and very swollen. do I have a staff infection and how should it be treated.
Hello and hope you are doing well. Its usually a staph infection which causes pus and abscess formation. It responds to penicillin group of antibiotics. But if an abscess has formed, it needs to be drained. To find a cure you need to consult your primary care physician for proper assessment. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
It is caused by a blocked tear duct, infection by bacteria or viruses, or irritation from antibiotic eye drops. It presents with puffy, red and tender eyelids; and eye discharge within 1 day to 2 weeks after birth. Treatment will depend on the cause. If it is due to a bacteria, antibiotics may be indicated. Take care and best regards.
I have a sinus infection and noticed a throbbing pain behind my lower eye lid after three days. When I looked in the mirror, there was a large amount of yellowish-white pus on the corner of my eye, and when I pulled the lid down, it was really red and puffy--and there was more of the pus in there. Did the infection of my sinuses spread to my eye, or is this not a big deal?
I have an eye infection so severe that my eye is swollen shut. It started 4 days ago. I had a pain behind my eye. It felt like something was growing next to the bone of my eye socket along the inner left eye. The next day, there was no swelling, no redness, but it hurt to move my eye. The day after that, the eye lid and inner eye started swelling and there was a discharge from the corner of the eye next to the nose.
Depending on the source of infection, it could permanently damage the eye itself. Antibiotics have different properties - they work well for certain types of infections. And rabbits have very sensitive systems and are limited in which antibiotics they will tolerate. I don't know how long it will be before you can afford a vet but in the meantime all I can suggest is keep the eye area cleaned. Do not use the same cloth or tissue over and over.
If you say sinus infection,infection has to be cleared out, assuming that you practice good hygiene,while you have used extensive antibiotics.If not,look into other issues like asthma or community acquired pneumonia,atypical pneumonia,hereditary acquired hypersensitivity, bronchitis which of them have different treatment options. Each of them include a wide range of microorganisms starting from environmental allergens to bacteria,viruses,fungi,metals,arsenic compounds,parasites and lot more.
I'm going for a retest in the New Year (unfortunately my clinic is closed until then). Am I worrying about nothing and should treat this as a normal eye infection? After a little reading I noticed that Zithromax would be used to treat the eye infection too; would the dosage be the same if so?. The only thing I can think that may have affected the antibiotics was a single (bottle) alcohol drink on Friday night.
Nine days ago I woke up with an extremely mild case of pink eye in my left eye. My sister had been suffering from it, so it was pretty easy to guess where I'd caught it, and I went promptly into the doctor to get it checked out. She confirmed it was pink eye (but didn't say whether it was viral or bacterial) and prescribed me antibiotic eyedrops. Knowing that it usually spread to both eyes I started drops in both eyes.
i have a white dot on the red thing in the cornor of my right eye. what is it and how do i get rid of it?
I am currently taking Minocin for an eye infection, and I am experiencing the anxiety symptoms that are so helpfully described on this forum. For me, the anxiety is far worse if you take the medication on an empty stomach. This causes nausea, and will send you over the edge into panic unless you are aware what is happening. The best solution is to eat something bready and wait it out.
I know the eye drops have only made things worse but I only started the eye drops to fix the problem. I do have allergic reactions to dustmites etc but the specialist said its not caused by allergies because steroids dont work. I have been tested for dry eye but its not that. It gets worse every year, Im writing this with burning eyes and severe sensitivity, I also wake up with yellow crust around my eyes and huge swollen bags under them.
I'm only asking because I now think I have a yeast infection and I'm getting over an upper respiratory infection.
I just wonder how I could possibly have any type of infection in my eye given all the antibiotics I'm on!!!???? Jackie: Have you heard anyone report problems like this related to Lyme? Thanks!
Hello :) About 2 years ago, I had quite a difficult eye infection that involved me getting multiple sties (4) on both my eyes. I was given doxycycline 100mg BID for a month, and erythromycin eye ointment for 4 months, which really didn't help the swelling I had on my bottom lids from the "sties" (I call them "sties" though my doctor never really confirmed what they were.
I ended up having a large abcess that needed to be drained and the infection was so severe, that my eye was almost swollen shut on morning when I woke up. The dentist had first prescribed me amoxicillin and that was not working so good so she said she was going to give me a stronger antibiotic called cyclobenzaprine.
