Hi,

Welcome to just answer

In a duration of 6 weeks if you are having only persistent eye discharge, with no change in vision or appearance of other symptoms like eye swelling, redness, sensitivity to light etc, then the reason most probably is not infection in the eyeball. There are two possibilities -

- allergic conjunctivitis - since you are prone to skin allergy, you might having the same in the eye also. The treatment for this is apply cold compresses to eye, take oral anti-allergy like T Levorid, use lubricating eye drops like refresh tears 3-4 times a day and anti-allergy eye drops like Visine -A 2-3 times a day. These medicines are all available over the counter

- Blockage of the nasolacrimal duct (NLD), which is responsible for drainage of excess tears from eye. In that case, the bacteria ca grow in lacrimal sack and cause the excessive discharge. To diagnose this, you need to consult an Ophthalmologist and would need antibiotic eye drops

I would recommend you to first treat yourself for eye allergy, If there is no improvement, then consult an Ophthalmologist for a detailed evaluation

Hope this information is helpful

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
