Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
What type of specialist did you see in the past for the left eye? Did you have the ear issue then?
no the ears were ok
Well, the lid problem sounds like a chalazion. This can be treated without antibiotics.
. 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.
The ear thing sounds like an external infection, maybe even an allergic rxn. As an ophthalmologist I would suggest you see a primary care MD for this issue.
Does this make sense to you?
yes maybe . i took patanol eye drops but this ear thing is not good and i forgot to say i get a red rash on my face too
Patanol takes 3 weeks of daily use to "kick in" before it works....not very good for acute issues like yours :)
Sounds like there is an allergic component to your issues....since the snow is melting outside my window right now in Wisconsin I guess that means winter will be coming your way soon....have you noticed any seasonal variations in your condition?
ok i will see my doctor today and see what she says but i will do the shampoo thing and see what happens and yes winter is heading my way but no snow here in brisbane australia and no variations in my condition
OK. Sounds like a good plan. It's always a pleasure to help my friends from downunder.
