Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.
Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with premium services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.
Do you wear contacts?
How old are you?
What is the name of the ointment your GP gave you?
Is it one eye or both?
Any other symptoms?
Can you upload a picture? You can use the paperclip on your screen.
Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.
From the pictures you might have a skin infection called preseptal cellulitis.
If this is the case then you need oral - or in some cases -- even IV antibiotics.
If things have gotten worse at all then you should see an MD today for a re-evaluation, even if this means that you have to go to the ER.
Does this make sense to you?
It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
