Hello,

Thank you for the question.

I need to know a few things here regarding your symptoms such as-

1. Where is the bacterial infection noticed.....in the eyes??

2. Which antibiotic has been prescribed and for how long have you taken those?

3. Are you using any eye drops ?

This is just an information request and I look forward to your reply.
