I woke up with some discharge from my eye today.

Doctor's Assistant: When was the last time you had your eyes checked? In general, how has your vision been lately?

Probably in June I wear glasses I have photos of my eye I just don't know how to send them

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had what appeared to be a cold sore on my lip 2 weeks ago

I had what seemed to be cold sore on my mouth about 2 weeks ago although I think it might've been a pimple but I'm worried if i had rubbed my eyes with it.

Got them--thanks

This is a bacterial conjunctivitis, not a viral/herpetic conjunctivitis

For now you can try Visine eye drops and cold compresses but if this continues beyond two more days you'll need to see your doctor for a prescription for antibiotic eye drops to treat it

Please let me know if you need any more information

Hi I spoke with you yesterday in regards ***** ***** left eye. Under my right eye right now are these bumps. What do you think they are? Do you think this is eye herpes??

Sorry for the delay

No, not herpes

That looks like an allergic dermatitis
