Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thanks for your question. Are you available to chat?
How long have you had these symptoms?
for 3 days
Is it a lot of mucus? In other words, are you spending all day long with a tissue to your eye to catch the drainage or is it primarily upon waking that you have the mucus?
pretty much all day
Is the mucus thick or thin? What color?
What color is the mucus? Is it in one eye or both?
white , one eye only
Have you recently had a cold or stomach flu? If not, have you been around anyone with either of these, or a red eye?
no i havent
Does the eye itch significantly?
Last question...do you suffer from seasonal or environmental allergies?
I'am using stye eye relief now
I suspect that this is either an allergy or possibly a viral conjunctivitis? Either one of these can be helped by using a drop called Naphcon-A which you can find OTC at your local drug store. Along with cool compresses this can help the eyes feel better and less irritated. While this won't make an infection resolve, this drop can control the symptoms. If after several days use, however, the itching is still significantly present, then I would recommend switching to a drop like Zaditor or Alaway, both OTC allergy drops that work well for allergic conjunctivitis, which I suspect would be the case if your symptoms didn't resolve on the other drop after several days.
Does that make sense?
yes sir , and thank you
