Hello doctor,

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have seen the picture (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

It appears to be a case of conjunctivitis with associated nasolacrimal duct infection.

  • Start Vigamox (Moxifloxacin) eye drops six times a day both eyes.
  • Tobramycin eye drops four times a day both eyes.
  • Carboxymethylcellulose plus Naphazoline eye drop six times a day.

All this for seven days. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines with their consent.

You have to perform nasolacrimal duct massage with your thumb and index finger of right hand place them over the portion where the nasal skin is meeting eyes, that is, corner of one's eye and gently push down.

Please maintain good hygiene of your as well as patient's hand.

Do wash your hands before and after instilling drops and massage.

Get well soon.

Thank you doctor,

But, my daughter is 3 years old. I hope I can give all these medicines considering her age. I hope it is nothing serious.
