Customer Question

my lower eye lid is very red inside & a little on the rim...when you look at it, it almost looks like its bleeding ...but its not,
it is a little uncomortable, but its not itchy....the only reason i noticed it was that yesterday it hurt when i closed & screwed up my eye....i have had a few migraine headaches in the last 10 days & they are always at this side & behind this this just a coincidence ? i have used some optex infected eye ointment will this settle it or do i need to visit my doctor....thank you

Expert:  Dr. James replied 7 years ago.
How long has the redness there or did you first notice it 10 days ago along with the migraines? Is the redness on the eyelid or eyeball? Is it well-define or diffuse? And can you clarify what you mean by "screwed it up"? Did you cause more pain, made it redder?
