Thank you for your reply.
Do I have to specifically take the anti biotic you advise (Augmentin duo 625 mg), or can I just say to the doctor that I would rather an oral anti biotic? The reason I ask is because I'm not sure I would be comfortable asking my doctor to prescribe a specific anti biotic!
Sorry, one final question: will the antibiotics help with the inflammation as I desperately want my eyes to look 'normal' again?
Many thanks for all your help.
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to respond..
Since Friday 19th I have been taking doxycyline tablets 100mg twice a day. Although only a few days they do not seem to be working. As you can see from the attached photo there's inflammation of the left upper eye lid (my right eye) and the huge lump on the other.
I am also taking chibro-cadron eye drops 5 times a day and performing hot compresses as advised.
Am I being impatient or is there something more sinister at work here?
All advice gratefully received!
Thanks, doctor. I've given a small tip for the excellent service (it all adds up!)
