Allergies symptoms pink eye

Common Questions and Answers about Allergies symptoms pink eye


Avatar m tn Pink eye is just that: pink eye. Our conjunctiva can get inflamed so easily from a variety of things. The seasons are also changing again, and it's that time of year where allergies and other things in your body will flare up. It's normal, and it's not HIV.
Avatar n tn After two weeks I went to the doctors and they told me I had bacterial pink eye and gave me eye drops (3 drops a day for 7 days). It's been over a week since the eye drops and still my eyes are very wet (but don't really drip) and water seems to just build up for some reason. Sometimes theres a lot of liquid in my eye to the point that things look blurry. I went back to the doctor today and now he has me trying allergy eye drops. What do you guys think?
Avatar f tn If her eye ball is completely red then I would say it's pink eye and would take her to the er. But if there's redness but doesn't cover her entire eye ball I would say its eye allergies.
Avatar m tn s due to a combination of summer allergies. Or could i have something more serious like pink eye? It is in one eye. Other eye conditions I have are cataracts and dry eyes.
Avatar n tn I have heavy eyes at night plus dry and redness and during the day they are irritated and dry, looks like pink eye could it be allergies? Sometimes one eye gets so bad it looks like pink eye but than it goes away after 2 day.
Avatar n tn She could also have a blocked tear duct. Or pink eye. Call your doc AND wash your hands. Pink eye is really contagious! My guess is it is one of those two things. They prescribe a simple eye drop for it and some docs will even just do it over the phone as this is so simple to treat and common. So, call and check on this. My allergies affect my eyes but in the way most allergies do, a 'histimine' way in that they itch and water and swell.
Avatar m tn I have never herd of allergies and HIV being related, but it is good that you have been tested for HIV especially if you have had unprotected sex. It could be pink eye, have you seen your primary care doctor?
Avatar m tn hi eye doctors, i am a 31 years old single male, my eyes are pink since i was a kid with no pain or vision problems what so ever. recently, as i have money now, i went to the only one eye doctor in town who put me on this eye drops: (Dr Fischer - Dexefrin) Decongestant, Antibiotic & Anti-inflammatory Therapy Sterile Ophthalmic Drops & Ointment Contains Neomycin Sulfate, Phenylephrine and Dexamethasone in a Lacrimol (PVP) tear substitute base link:
Avatar n tn I have pink eye again (2nd time) and am wondering if having it mulitple times can endanger your eyes?
Avatar n tn Oh yes, good old pink eye. Call the doctor and be prepared, you will likely get it as well. We've been lucky to only have this just a couple of times but our pediatrician gives drops for the whole family as it is quite contagious.
229857 tn?1319029907 It might just be allergies getting the best of him. When my allergies are acting up my eye seems to secrete more and when I wake up I have to wash my eyelashes before I can open my eyeballs.
281603 tn?1229311681 For the last two days my 4 month old girl one eye has been watery and this morning it start to look swollen. This is the same eye that she rub when she is tired, everytime she wakes up there's eye booger, we thought it might be pink eye (some same symptoms) but the white part of her is not red, it doesn't itch.
Avatar f tn Hello, There is no relation of farting and pink eye. Pink eye can be due to conjunctivitis, uveitis, dry eye, blepharitis, angle closure glaucoma, subconjunctival haemorrhage, corneal infection, injury, contact lens wear and allergies. I would suggest you to get it evaluated from an ophthalmologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar f tn I first started with a stye in my eye, then once it went away, I got my first pink eye about 6 years ago. After that I would get it about once every 2 months or so. The doctor said that it was due to my eye glands producing too much oil. He gave me pills that reduced the produccion of oil and it help. I live in las Vegas for a year. That whole year I had no problems. Once I moved back to where I lived orifinaly the problem came back. Not to mention my seasonal allergies.
Avatar f tn Only problem we are having now, is that his daughters mother is convinced that her daughter has allergies instead of pink eye because that is what her pedi told her. He prescribed oral antibiotics, hopefully it will cure it. We went to the doctor and she prescribed eye drops with antibiotics for my DF. It seems like EVERYONE is sick around here. There is no way to shelter our babies from it I guess. It's so nerve racking!!
Avatar f tn It looked like pink eye without the itchiness and crusty eye. This went on for about a month or so, until I decided to treat it with some antibiotics I had laying around the house (my childrens pink eye medicine). I used this medicine for a week or so, which didnt clear up the red eye, but seemed to keep it at bay. Finally, wiht no explanation, the red eye went away. About two months ago, my right eye began showing the same symptoms. Sometimes it would be clear, sometimes flaming red.
Avatar f tn They work for me and my allergies are horrible every year. Mine get so bad people think I have pink eye. Another thing you can do is soak some paper towels and hold them on your eyes for a few minutes or get a spoon real cold and hold it against your eye.
1006035 tn?1485575897 I brought him to the vet and they said it was definitely pink eye and gave him some eye ointment. I find it so odd to put ointment in an eye...he doesn't seem to care though. Do you think he'll have allergies like this every year? He is a 2 year old labradoodle.
Avatar n tn maybe pink eye? i would take him to the ped.
Avatar f tn Hi Doc, I have a red ring around my pupil that only shows up when my pupils get small. This isnt pink eye, allergies, or bloodshot eyes because it dosen't look like it or feel like it. Now i have a hazel or greenish colored iris. And when my pupils get small i see a red ring that shows up around my pupil that is like a scattered ring it spikes up to different lengths in different parts on the outside of the ring.
162279 tn?1270601359 Thanks, Rock Rose, but I don't think that is it. I have had kids with pink eye and this is nothing like it. I googled viral conjunctivitis specifically and it doesn't sound like it matches his symptoms. I am thinking now its an allergic reaction to a dog he played with today?
Avatar f tn The sclera of her eye is still white and she is able to move her eye normally. She has not had any new foods, no new detergents/soaps. I just cannot pinpoint why this happened again to her?!? I have considered seasonal allergies as my middle son also struggles with seasonal allergies as does my husband. Her ped does not seem too concerned as she is otherwise playful, eating, drinking, peeing, etc. Thanks for any input!
Avatar f tn I did take her the vet, the next day. Her eye turned out to just be a scratch or allergies so she gets eye drops three times a day. Unfortunately her spleen was 3 times the normal size and the vet feared that she may possibly have adrenal disease but because she has no other symptoms (which he said is very odd) it may be that her spleen is just swollen from the infection in her eye. For now we are just keeping an eye on her.
Avatar f tn These medications all help to relieve short term symptoms of allergic reactions. However, there is a way of preventing the long term symptoms of allergies. This is through a process known as immunology, more commonly referred to as an allergy shot.
Avatar n tn My Eyes have been doing this strage thing for awhile now. For a whole month it will appear like I have pink eye (no itching or burning) but then for two months they will be crystal clear. Now they are pink and my eye sight has gotten very worse in the last 3 days. I can still see, but everything is blurry.
Avatar m tn Hello, I have a red spot in my eye that has been reoccuring for almost 8 years. It is inflamed and will calm down within minutes. I think it may be due to allergies? Any thoughts on what this could be? I have visited an optometrist and she prescribed steroid drops for 10 days. Problem became almost non existent until i stopped using them. It's a little pink and when inflamed it can become more red. I can post pics if needed.
