Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I had my right eye operated on. I had a benign nevus removed from the white part of the eye, and it has been two months. There is still a red scar that is constantly inflamed and irritated. My question is, will this persist forever, or is it going to fade in the upcoming months? Would you please give me your opinion on this? Thank you.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thanks for writing in, and I understand your concern. Generally, everything settles within six weeks of surgery. Do you have any other issues like thyroid or diabetes? And what medications are you on at present? The lesion should have healed by now. Can you share a picture? Or a video consultation would help. Regards.

Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Thank you for your response.

I have attached the images. This is what the place of surgery looks like at the moment. Please tell me what you have to suggest on this. Regards.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Based on the reports (attachments removed to protect the patient's identity), the surgery site is still inflamed. Start Loteprednol eye drops thrice a day for ten days along with eye drop Sodium Hyaluronate six times a day. If this remains, please visit your physician. Regards.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
