Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Does it hurt for you to look at the light? How is your vision in the affected eye?
no it does not my vision was good at stat care and light does not bother it it is in the very corner like were you get sleep in your eye right there and on the skin it is painful to touch and i have to be real careful with a warm compress. it also tuened like a black eye for 2 days it was all red and swollen on the upper eyelid
Ok. This sounds like you are getting a nasty stye or an early chalazion. I do not believe this is a recurrence of your HSV in the eye....
I wish I could send you a pic on here
The most common cause for swelling or bump on the eyelid is a chalazion or a stye. These bumps form when a gland in your eyelid gets plugged up and possibly infected. It is very often associated with a condition called blepharitis.
The treatment for this condition, however, is not antibiotics but rather cleaning the eyelids with baby shampoo. Buy some unscented baby shampoo and, in the shower, put the shampoo on your index fingers. Close your eyes, and raise your eyelids (to get skin out of the way) and scrub back and forth along your EYELASH margin. This is where the gland openings are located. The warm water will soften the gunk in the plugged glands, the friction and pressure of your fingers will massage the glands, forcing the gunk out and the shampoo will wash it away. You can also use warm compress to the affected lids during the day as your schedule allows.
This treatment will help to treat the bump on your eyelid while at the same time solving your underlying blepharitis. The lump may take many weeks to go away but you should notice some improvement in a few days or so.
you can :) Let me show you one way to upload a picture for me to review:
Save your picture on your computer, someplace easy to find it such as your desktop.
Go to www.tinypic.com
Upload your picture to the site tinypic.com by browsing for it as directed.
Once you do that it gives you a bunch of links you can use, one of which says "direct link for layouts" It is important to use this box. It is the forth one down from the top of the page.
Copy the link inside this box and then paste it into your justanswer dialog box and send it to your expert.
I'll wait =)
