infection

Avatar n tn Second often the problem is not an eye infection but a different problem such as an allergy or immune releated eye problem or dry eye. My suggestion would be to see an eye MD ophthalmologist that specializes in cornea and external disease.
Avatar n tn FINALLY AFTER CHANGING EYE SPECIALIST I FOUND AN EYE SPECIALIST THAT TOLD ME AN HAD AN EYE INFECTION - ETHMODITIS. I AM TAKING MEDICATION FOR THE PAST 3 MONTHS NOW BUT MY EYE STILL PAINS (BUT NOT LIKE BEFORE). THE PAIN IS VERY UNCOMFORTABLE AND FRASTRATING. ALSO STRINGY COLD WOULD COME OUT FROM MY EYES. CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHEN THE PAIN WOULD STOP. I TOLD ALL SORT OF DIFFERENT MEDICATION FOR THIS SUCH AS ANTIBIOTICS TO KILL THE BACTERIA, AMOXIL, REPICLAV, CLARITINE, ZYRTEC, VITAMINS SUCH AS B.
Avatar m tn 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?
Avatar n tn You need to see an optometrist or ophthalmologist to get antibiotics. You do not need to let an infection go untreated.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn A tear duct infection (dacryocystitis) can be very severe, cause a soft tissue infection (orbital cellulitis) and require hospitalization and IV antibiotics.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar m tn See an ophthalmologist or optometrist. Might not be an infection. Or could be a viral infection that antibiotics don't kill.
Avatar f tn I have a corneal ulcer/infection being treated with fortified antibiotics(Vancomycin and Tobramycin) 1 drop every hour, vigamox 4xday, tobradex ointment 1at bedtime, and predforte 4xday. I have been using these medications since Friday Oct.31 Saw Dr. Nov.1st and was told to stay on this schedule. I saw my glaucoma specialist today and he took me off all meds except fortified antibiotics.
Avatar n tn For two months now, I've been being treated for an eye infection (both eyes). It was initially thought to be allergies, but the Patanol did not help. Opthamologist then prescribed tobradex, which worked until I came off it. We then moved to longer tobradex usage that tapered over two weeks. Came back again once I came off. Then moved to oral antibiotic for one week and zylet - no results. Now oral antibiotic for two weeks - no results.
Avatar f tn Did any bodily fluids from the person you contracted it from get in your eye? There are mucous membranes in the eye which can facilitate the infection there, so yes you can definitely get the infection in the eye. I'm not a doctor, so I cant speak to whether the current antibiotics will cure it.
4591205 tn?1410605174 my kitten had a upper respiratory infection and was on antibiotics for a week. hes no longer congested and sneezing but his right eye has this goopy white eye stuff init and is a lil swollen sometimes he cant even open it.
Avatar f tn I found out I have s strep b infection..anyone else had this. Trying not to stress over it. And have a hospital appointment next week.
Avatar f tn I have been on antibiotics for six days for a nasil staph infection now the bridge of my nose is tingling.the pain is all gone but I still have a small opening inside my nose and it is still red inside and it swells and then the swelling goes down through out the day. Why is my nose tingling?
Avatar m tn i have chlamydial eyelid infection alongside with blepharitis in my right eye, im not sure which condition came first. Before i got tested for chlamydia, the treatment was eyelid hygiene, warm compresses and short courses of antibiotic-steroid ointment; i never got better, more glands blocked and inflammation instead. Only treatment left is oral antibiotic i guess. I have used doxycycline before but i cant finish the treatment because of gastric side effects and eyelid irritation.
Avatar n tn I have seen other posted questions about discharge coming out of an eye when a person blows their nose. I too have had this same issue for a couple years, and doctors had always said that it was not a problem to worry about. However, several weeks ago I developed a bad sinus infection and along with it I started to have green/yellow discharge coming out of my right eye, which has since spread to both.

I went to the doctors first he told me to do the warm compress that didn't work , Then he prescribed me Torbex , that didn't work either . I went to see a eye specialist , he told me it's a stye but he couldn't do anything to help without a referal from a doctor . he seemed stupid so I didn't bother going back there .
Avatar f tn m am ANTI antibiotics.....but when I was 13 weeks pregnant I got a really bad Infection from a broken wisdom tooth and had to take them to kill infection before having it pulled. I'm now 38weeks and my Daughter is fine, although I was Leary. An infection in way more detrimental then The antibiotics.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn Yesterday I picked my daughter up from nursery and noticed that she had an eye infection - red eye with watery discharge. Took her to the doctor where they diagnosed conjunctivitus and prescribed her an antibiotic eye ointment. My concern is that although I'm normally very good with hand hygiene I may still have managed to spread the chlamydia bacteria to her eye causing this infection. My doctor says it's unlikely.
Avatar n tn If you wear contacts I would say that you have an infection of the lining of your eye and it needs attention. You can get this infection without wearing contacts by getting bacteria in your eye ... I would go to eye doctor and rule out infection of the cornea and if it is this they have a drop that will immediately start healing your eye. had this one time in my life and never want it again.
Avatar n tn Can I use Besivance in my dogs eyes? He has an eye infection. He is totally blind and is 16 years old.
Avatar m tn She was given antibiotics for the eye infection, later she tested negative for chlamydia, but I suspect the eye antibiotics cleared up the chlamydia.
