Red Eyes After Being Exposed To Mascara?
assalamualikum my veins were very red about a month and a half ago I used mascara and then my eyes were exposed to the mascara. Does it affect my eyes like this? and should I buy antibiotic eye drops
Red eye is a condition that occurs quite often. Red eye can be caused due to various causes. From what you experience, red eyes can be caused by conjunctivitis.
conjunctivitis is a condition where there is inflammation of the conjunctiva (lining of the eye). Conjunctivitis can occur due to bacterial infection, repeated irritation of the eye, or due to certain substances. Mascara in contact with the eyes can cause eye irritation. Especially if the mascara you use is exposed to the eyes, chronic irritation can occur which can cause recurrent red eyes. Conjunctivitis can cause other symptoms such as itchy, swollen, watery eyes and may be accompanied by the build-up of eye discharge.
In addition, the condition you are experiencing can also be caused by other causes such as:
keratitis / inflammation of the cornea
What you have to remember is that not all pink eye requires antibiotic drops. so that to ascertain the cause of the condition you are experiencing, you should check with your doctor first, so that the doctor can check your condition directly. Carelessly giving medication can actually make red eyes worse.
