Right Eye Pain That Moves To The Left Eye Does Not Heal Even Though It Has Been Treated?
excuse me, I have already taken medicine from the puskesmas with the medicine taken and the drops, but why does the eye not heal, it is still red itchy and there is a splint, the solution is long and what should not be done when the eye scars are still missing.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Eye pain or also called conjunctivitis actually has a variety of causes. In general, conjunctivitis can be divided into non-infectious conjunctivitis and infectious conjunctivitis. Non-infectious conjunctivitis can be caused by allergies, irritation of foreign bodies in the eye, or exposure to chemicals. Infectious conjunctivitis can be caused by viral, bacterial, or fungal infections. First of all, of course you need to be sure in advance whether you experience non-infectious or infectious conjunctivitis. If your doctor really suspects that you have an infectious conjunctivitis, it is also very important to distinguish what infections are affecting your eyes.
For infectious conjunctivitis, there are a number of important things that you should pay attention to so that the infection in your eye does not occur continuously / alternately as you are experiencing at the moment:
Avoid touching your eyes
If you accidentally touch your eyes, or you have touched your eyes to clean tears or eye dirt, wash your hands immediately with soap
Wash your hands as often as possible (because people are often not aware when touching eyes)
Change and wash the towels you use to dry your face every day, don't exchange towels with other people
Change and wash your pillow case and bolster every day
Do not use cosmetics, especially in the eye area, if you have used cosmetics in the eye area during your illness, replace your eye brush with a new one, do not use your mascara again.
Don't use contact lenses as long as your eye has an infection. Change your contact lenses when exposed to your red eyes
You can reduce the symptoms that make your eyes uncomfortable by compressing your eyes with warm compresses. Remember to always replace and wash your compress after every use.
You can consult an eye doctor if your eye condition has not improved after the drug from the previous doctor has run out.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
