Customer Question

I had thought I got something in my eye yesterday but it was off and on annoying but barely noticeable. I went to get a facial today and immediately after my right eye got tender and very progressively worse as the day went. It is very painful and much dark green drainage coming out. I had some expired antibiotic drops but not sure if it's working. Very concerned because I have a 3 month old baby and I don't want to get her sick.

This is Dr. David

I would not use expired antibiotics

best to wash out your eye with water in the shower.

dark green drainage is a sign of an eye or sinus infection.

you should go to the ER or urgent care center and see a doctor and get your eye examined.

they can give you a prescription for antibiotics for your eyes if you have an eye infection.

I don't want you to get your 3 month old sick either.

let me know if you have questions.
