Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi Dr. DanB,
Maybe I should mention to you that she actually had lots of light yellowish discharge last Monday. It just happened once. Then it is the itchy and red eye.
Thank you Dr. DanB! Could you sort of explain to me what is allergic conjunctivitis? Is it some kind of infection caused by allergy?
That's it! The discharge looked just like what you described. So, if that is the case, my understanding, is to treat them with stronger allergy medication? or antibiotics? or bring her to be checked by ophthalmologist? like you have suggested?
What causes allergic conjuctivitis? Is it seasonal (spring time with lots of pollen flying around) or from eye lashes?
Thanks a lot for your clear explanation and instructions.
