Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My right eye is swollen and pains during opening and closing because I touched my eye with dirty hands. I am using an eye drop, but the pain and swelling have not subsided. Please suggest some medicines for my problem.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I suggest you do hot fomentation over your right eye at least four times daily and take the tablet Enzoflam (Diclofenac, Paracetamol, and Serratiopeptidase) if you are not allergic to it. In addition, I suggest you do not use any other eye drop other than Moxifloxacin four times a day (consult a specialist doctor, talk with him or her and take medicines with their consent).

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