Conjunctivitis That Doesn’t Go Away For 2 Weeks?
Good afternoon HealthReplies.com.rnI have been diagnosed by a doctor with conjunctivitis. Initially diagnosed on March 22, 2018. And until now has not recovered. I’ve gone to two doctors. By the first doctor I was given a prescription for tobroson. Then by the second doctor I was given a prescription for cravit and flumetholone. My eye condition since the 22nd has improved. In the beginning, there were a lot of spots, now there are a few spots, what used to be my eyes were red and sore, now they don’t anymore. But why is it that every time I wake up my eyes are still red? Almost every day like that. This is the 12th day I have conjunctivitis. Considering also I was prescribed corticosteroids that should not be used in the long term. Thank you.
Thank you Christian Putra for the question on the HealthReplies.com forum, conjunctivitis is a condition where there is inflammation of the conjunctiva or the clear membrane that lines the front of the eye. Conjunctivitis can be caused by several things such as allergic conditions, infections, or exposure to certain irritants. Where in general this conjunctivitis can cause several symptoms such as:
- Red eye
- can come out of tears or discharge
- can cause itching
- can also be accompanied by stinging
Treatment for this conjunctivitis condition also varies depending on the underlying cause of this conjunctivitis. Regarding red eyes, it can be caused by an ongoing inflammatory process which may be due to an allergic condition or the influence of dry eyes. Therefore, in your current condition, it is better to be checked regularly with the doctor who has been treating you at this time in order to monitor the progress of your current condition and plan further therapy.
