Treatment Of Conjunctivitis With Eye Drops?
Assalamuallaikum, I went to the pharmacy to buy cendo xitrol eye drops, because my eyes are inflamed in the conjunctiva and there are small white spots that make me sick, but I hesitate to use them, afraid they won’t suit my eye condition? What do you think about this medicine?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Inflamed conjunctiva in medical science is called conjunctivitis. This condition can arise due to allergies, irritation, or infection. Symptoms that appear can be pain, itching, burning, red, watery eyes, or excessive secretions (belekan).
The appearance of a small white mass on the inflamed conjunctiva may be a sign of pinguecula. This condition arises due to excessive conjunctival proliferation which can be stimulated by dry eyes, or also exposure to ultraviolet light and excessive dry air in the eyes. When enlarged, of course this mass can make a sense of lump or pain. In addition, the mass may also become inflamed, causing complaints as you are experiencing right now.
To reduce discomfort in the eyes, while you are advised to use eye drops that contain artificial tears, or artificial tears. The eye drops you mentioned contain an active composition of anti-inflammatory substances and antibiotics. All of these contents are not a class of over-the-counter drugs that you can use carelessly without a doctor's examination beforehand. Therefore, we recommend that you do not use it just yet.
Check your complaint directly to the doctor to be evaluated, is it true that your complaint arises due to conjunctivitis and/or pinguecula. Because, in some conditions, the symptoms of these two conditions can resemble other diseases, such as uveitis, keratitis, endophthalmitis, acute angle closure glaucoma, pterygium, pseudopterygium, and so on. In fact, each of these conditions can have a different treatment. So, don't be in a hurry to use eye drops carelessly (except artificial tears).
At this time, you should protect your eyes from exposure to the sun and excessive dry air, for example by wearing protective glasses. Limit rubbing your eyes too often, especially with unclean hands. Also protect your eyes from exposure to pollution, dust, and other irritants.
Hope it helps ya..
