Hi. I see you are offline but let me see if I can assist you.
If it is just one eye and it is draining pus and the white part of the eye is bloodshot, then it is likely pink eye.
Yes it is just one eye.
It's a little bloodshot but not hugely
and it's not itchy
Are you taking anything for your sore throat?
So i'm stuck in the airport now
and my flight is delayed
if i get medicine tonight
It is likely viral then and not necessary to take an antibiotic eye drop.
when will i not be contagious?
Sorry about your delay - spent 10 hours in Admiral's Club at SFO one long night!
oh my gosh, that sounds terrible too!
i've been here for 7 hours
i got here really early though
so if it has to do with my sore throat and it's likely viral
then am i super contagious
i'm wondering if i should cancel my weekend trip to atlanta with my fiance
because we were supposed to stay with his cousin
but i don't want to infest them if it's really contagious
It can be contagious but you may use one of the over the counter drops to help with the redness and I'm sure one of the shops there has it. It is only contagious if you touch your eye and then theirs.
Yes, i did grab some visine for the redness and it helps
so i should heal on my own?
Never been there.
It's pretty nice, kindof a small town but not too tiny.
where are you?
Yes, if viral it will resolve on its own. If not and getting worse, spreads to other eye then will need Rx.
Portland, OR is my favorite.
nice! i've been there but only once
Great shops with local artisans.
yes! you are right, i remember now
and they have a little wine area i think. is that right?
Is there anything i can do to make this get better faster?
just a good night sleep, or anything else?
Yes. Willamette Valley great for pinot noir.
No, just use the Visine, keep it cleaned out best you can so you don't scare anyone, and it should resolve in the next day or so.
Oh my gosh I'm so relieved.
the visine says i should only use it 4 times a day
i can do more than that, right?
Yes but it usually last up to 4-6 hours but more often is fine.
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
And good luck on your flight.
This is wonderful news
thank you so much!!!
And enjoy portland's wine if you find yourself there again soon :)
