Causes Stinging And Watery Eyes When Closed?
noon, permission to ask, this is my body hot and flu coughs cold again, but my eyes really hurt when I close them, but the water is still watery but it looks red, why?
Watery eyes can be caused by =
Eye irritation. Eye infection. Foreign body in the eye. Eye allergies Eye trauma. Looking at gadgets for too long. Use of contact lenses. Lagoftlamus, a condition in which the eyelids cannot close completely. Eyelashes that grow inward and touch the cornea. Your condition can also be caused by a medical condition that you are experiencing, namely an elevated body temperature accompanied by a flu infection. In flu, inflammation of the nose due to a virus can affect the eye condition causing red, watery and sore eyes or even itching.
However, if your flu has improved but the eye water condition is still continuing then you should do a follow-up examination to the nearest ophthalmologist. The ophthalmologist can give a careful examination of your eye condition and provide the appropriate treatment.
Take fever relievers and cold medicines that are available in the market. Warm compresses on your forehead and eyes to make your condition more comfortable.
I hope this helps.
