Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
That "stuff" you are pulling on is called conjunctiva. It is the outer layer of "skin" around your eyeball.
Please don't tear it off.....it will really, really hurt :)
yes I think so, I was checking all around my eye to see if its clearing up and thats what I noticed
Nothing to worry about.......just leave it alone.
Also, chlorampenicol is not the best treatment for blepharitis.....
wasn't sure if it was the antibiotics or something else,it dosen't hurt and haven't pulled at it directly only by moving the eye eye skin to see and it looks like its pulling away but it dosen't move.
im a worrier and then I start looking at all sorts online
Blepharitis is a condition where glands in the eyelids are not functioning normally. They become plugged and instead of putting out their normal clear, oily secretions, they put out thick, toothpaste like gunk. You may not be able to see this “gunk” yourself, unless it is really bad, but it shows up clearly on slit lamp examination.
The best treatment for this condition daily lid scrubs combined with warm compresses. I like to use baby shampoo for lid scrubs. In the shower, place the shampoo on your index fingers, close your eyes, raise your eyebrows (to stretch the skin on your eyelids) and scrub back and forth along your eyelashes for 3 to 5 minutes. The hot water in the shower helps to soften the plugged oils in the glands while the mechanical scrubbing with your soapy fingers removes the oils.
Baby shampoo lid scrubs will also help to wash away allergens and stimulate tear production,
hmm I wonder why I was prescribed this, the reason for this since March I have had random swelling of my eyes overnight and when I wake in the morning the top lids are very swollen, it can be one eye or the other or both
Ya. The internet has all sorts of scary things on it. That is why talking to a real doctor, in my case an eye specialist, is so handy...we can sort things out for you.
Perhaps you doctor thought a nose infection was involving you eyes....you noted things were better some......
but antibiotics are only a short term solution to blepharitits....the lid scrubs take care of it forever.
yes definately thank-you, so yesmy eyes dont seem or feel the sense of scratchy but the swelling was the biggest issue every morning or it happend religously every thur morning weird, ok I will try baby shampoo, but my natural reaction would be to flinch because I would think it stings lol
But at least now you know what that white, egg like stuff is in your eye :-)
Baby shampoo doesn't even make a baby flinch lol!
So I bet you will be ok ;)
