And how do you solve it?rnThank you
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Migraine or headaches and red eye disorders that you mention can be a disease that occurs continuously or conditions that actually just happen to happen close together. This is because among the possibilities are:
Cluster headache. This headache is a severe headache, and tends to be on one side of the head. In addition to headaches, other symptoms that can be felt are a runny nose, red and watery eyes, and pain behind the eyes. Bacterial, viral, fungal infections of the eye. This is one of the things that often happens to the eyes, and can occur due to lack of hygiene, not using glasses or helmet visors when riding a motorcycle and so on. Insect bites. Some insects that bite in the eye area can cause itching and redness
So in your case, our advice is to have your eyes checked by an ophthalmologist, because if there is a tendency towards a bacterial infection, for example, you need eye medication that contains antibiotics and you cannot get them freely. Or if it turns out that your ophthalmologist thinks it stems from cluster headaches, you need to be referred for treatment from a neurologist. The ophthalmologist will later try to see if there is a possible abnormality using a flashlight, or using special tools if indicated.
Meanwhile, our advice is not to rub your eyes first, avoid walking in areas that are prone to foreign objects entering your eyes, such as dusty, sandy, etc. areas, and rest your eyes. For more information, you can click the following link to our article on Preventing Red Eye. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
