Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi and thanks for the query.
Often after viral upper respiratory tract infections, the post viral phase lasts for 4 to 6 weeks. The best thing to do in this time is to keep yourself well hydrated and not stress the body a lot, chicken soup has been proven to boost immunity and decrease the post viral infection symptoms, so having a bowl a day will be beneificial. The smell and the taste sensation will improve given time and so will the eye pressure.
However, if you develop any additional symptoms like discharge from the eye, nose or ears, fever, extreme malaise and lethargy - you should not hesitate to contact your physician.
Hope this helps.
