Hello, my white part yesterday afternoon accidentally scratched a needle and now it hurts a lot, is a bit swollen and tears. What should I do? Thank you
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
Eyes that are accidentally scratched by needles need to be explored further about the layers of the eye damaged by needle strokes in your eyes. There are several layers and parts of the eye that can be damaged due to trauma with the needle such as the conjunctival lining, the cornea of the eye, sclera (the part that forms the white ball of the eye). Need to be examined about the shape of the wound in the eye lining, area, depth due to the scratches, are there any pieces of needles left in the eye lining.
Symptoms of pain, swelling, and tears can be symptoms of an inflammatory reaction from the area associated with scratches / trauma. There are several possibilities that occur:
Conjunctivitis. Inflammation of the conjunctival lining of the eye. Can be marked with reddish eyes. Scleritis. Inflammation of the sclera lining of the eye is characterized by reddish eyes. Inflammation due to scratches / trauma in the area concerned. In this condition it is not advisable for you to rub your eyes or keep on trying to clean your eyes multiple times, use protective equipment on the eyes such as glasses to avoid exposure to wounds from dirt, dust, and smoke. Avoid using eye drops on your own without consulting a doctor. Consult an ophthalmologist to get an examination and management that suits your condition.
