Sick, Itchy Eyes And Throbbing Eyelids?
I want to ask, my eyes have often been sore and itchy for a month. Often itchy eyes. Once to the white part u0026sup2; wrinkled eyes. But recover after eye drops. After that, itching again. Once itchy like something is striking into the eyes, it turns curling eyelashes inside. End of u0026sup2; It’s often itchy but I don’t know why. It still itches in the right eye. If you close your eyes, then you touch the twitching of your eyelids. Even though today has been given eye drops. What should I do?
Thank you for the question.
Here are some possible causes of itchy and sore eyes based on your complaint:
Trichiasis, or ingrown eyelashes. These eyelashes can irritate and cause eye infections.
Conjunctivitis, which is an infection in the outer layer of the eyeball.
Keratitis, which is an infection of the cornea.
Uveitis, which is an infection in the middle layer of the eye.
If this condition has been gradual for a month, accompanied by pain, discharge, red eyes, and decreased visual function, it is better for you to consult an ophthalmologist. Your doctor will evaluate your complaints, conduct physical examinations, and conduct investigations if needed such as checking nerve part of your eye so that the doctor can handle according to the cause of your complaint, like one of them doctors can take the action of removing the eyelashes that are a source of irritation and infection in the eye, and the doctor will prescribe drops that can be in the form of antibiotics.
Here's what you can do at home:
Continue to provide eye drops that can moisturize the eye.
Warm compresses on the itchy, red part of the eye.
Do not touch the eyes with your hands directly.
Wash your hands regularly.
Reduce the use of eye makeup and the use of contact lenses when you use it.
Hopefully this information can help and hopefully get well soon.
