I feel pain and swelling in the tear duct of my left eye and a sharp pain when I close my eyelids. I have some kind of tear-duct infection or growth. Could you please tell me what kind of infection it is? Kindly help.
Thank you for your query. I understand your concern. You seem to have a lacrimal sac infection known as dacryocystitis. I suggest you to follow a few instructions. Take the tablet Amoxclav 625 mg thrice daily for three days. Take tablets containing Diclofenac and Serratiopeptidase once daily after meals for five days. Take a tablet of Pantoprazole 40 mg every empty morning stomach. Take the tablet Moxifloxacin eye drop six times a day for next week. Use Tobramycin eye drop four times a day for next week. Apply Polymixin and Chloramphenicol eye ointment at bedtime for five days. After completing this course, you have to get a test of syringing done to rule out the blockage. Kindly consult a specialist, talk to them and take medications with their consent. I hope this has helped you. Thank you.
