I am a 48-year-old male. My eyes and the entire area around my pupil have become red. They are hurting me a lot. I went to a doctor, and I was diagnosed with conjunctivitis. I was given Erythromycin ointment to get relief, and I am not feeling better. The area around my eyes is swollen. I am sensitive to light, and it hurts me a lot when I strain them. I do not have this problem before. I am not hypertensive, and I am not diabetic.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have gone through the images (attachment removed to protect patient identity). You have infective conjunctivitis. Erythromycin eye ointment is an antibiotic ointment that helps to get relief from this condition. But it will take some time. I cannot say whether it is viral or bacterial. If it is viral, the disease will get relieved in 10 to 15 days. You should do cold compresses three to four times a day in both the eyes. You should not touch household items too much as it can spread to other members of the family.
