Why Every Time A Fever, The Eyes Become Swollen And Can Not Be Opened Fully?
Hello doctor .. I want to overcome the problem of eye pain and bruised eyes. If I have a fever, the eyes will become bruised and the eyes won’t be able to open completely. What is the problem with my eyes doc?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Eye pain, bruising, so difficult to open may indicate an inflammation of the eyelids (blepharitis). This condition can occur due to bacterial infection, or inflammation due to other causes, for example seborrheic dermatitis, rosacea, allergies, blockage of the oil glands in the eyelids, to the presence of lice around the eyelashes. Not only is it painful, bruised, and difficult to open, inflammation of the eyelids can also make the eyes become watery, discharge abnormal secretions, more sensitive to light, swell, and even the surrounding eyelashes can fall out.
Not only blepharitis, your eyes can also experience the above complaints due to other triggers, for example conjunctivitis, uveitis, keratitis, endophthalmitis, panophthalmitis, insect or other animal bites, preseptal cellulitis, hordeolum, contact dermatitis, eye injury, and so on. A fever that you are experiencing may indicate an infection. However, it needs to be clarified again, whether this infection purely occurs in the eye area, or is there a focus on other infections.
More precisely, you check your complaint directly to the doctor or the nearest eye specialist so that it can be handled appropriately. Several types of drugs, including topical medications (eye drops or ointments) and oral medications can be prescribed by the doctor according to the conditions that underlie your complaints. At home, you also need to balance the doctor's treatment with the following steps:
Always keep the eyes clean and not to enter harmful foreign substances. Compress the painful and bruised eyes with warm water. Raise your head while sleeping, ie by using a higher pillow. Not rubbing or pressing the eyes excessively. around the eyes Avoid contact between eyes with substances that can make you allergic or irritated. Get plenty of rest. Hope it helps.
