Conjunctivitis Questions

I was prescribed by an eye doctor brismox d and alcarex-kt eye drops for my allergic conjunctivitis for 15 days. Dosage as follows- brismox d was prescribed for 6 times a day and alcarex-kt was for 4 times a day. Now, after 10 days I am feeling fine and consulted again the same doctor. He told to continue brushing d for next 10 days bd and next 10 days od and alcarex-kt same as before. What should I do? How many days should I take the brismox-d eye drop as I heard steroid eye drops long term usage creates unnecessary side effects. Please advice me and guide me. I have to undergo a fistula surgery in next few days. Thank you.

Hello. Kindly follow your doctor’s advise as he has rightly prescribed you the medications. Steroids are to be tapered only and never stopped abruptly. Taking steroids for this much of shorter time would not cause major side effects. So no need to worry. Hope this helps. You can reach me out for any further queries. Thank you.

Doctor, I had keratoconjunctivitis. Due to it, small white spots developed in my cornea. Doctor prescribed me to use a lubricant eye gel called "hylo gel" after using the drop approximately for 7-10 months, my doctor told me that many spots are faint now and he also told me to use the drop and also told that the spots will go away but it will take time. Now, as the spots healing/fainting, can the spots create/develop/form new scar in cornea (like corneal ulcer. When corneal ulcer heals, most of the time it create/develop/form new scar in cornea) anyway? Please let me know the true answer.

Hello. Any kind of corneal trauma will end in scar of variable depth/ size/ intensity depending upon various factors. After the scar is healed chances of getting converted into an ulcer on its own are very very slim. Don’t get carried away my what google or a non-professional person must be telling you. Yes it can get activated again depending on many risk factors which you have to avoid. Also the extent and location of the scar will determine how much will the vision get affected. You can contact me anytime to have a detailed discussion about all possible scenarios of your case. Also without having a look at the lesion or the previous documentation in your file, it’s difficult to comment much now. Depending on the current picture, steroid drops can be started to decrease the scar. (caution: never use steroid drops as an over the counter drops without doctor’s advise). Hope this helps.

Hello. Itching at the corners of the eye is a very common problem. It can be due to allergic, infective or inflammatory causes. The diagnosis will depend of a detailed history and examination. An eye doctor would like to know if you have an allergic tendency or any sinus problem. For how long you have this problem? Is it in one eye or both? Are you currently on treatment for any other illness? Do any of your family members have allergy? A good quality picture of the eye will be a great help to advise further treatment. You can reach me out anytime for discussing your case in detail and to get a prescription further. Hope this helps. Thank you.

I got infected with viral eye conjunctivitis caused by herpes virus around 1.5 years ago. I have been using fml liquifilm along with tacrolimus ointment. But as soon as I stop using them both for about 4-5 days, I start to develop a bit blurred vision, and as soon as I start using them again, I get my clarity back. Should I stop using fml or should I continue it?

Dear lybrate-user, please stop using this medication asap. You are inviting a lot of trouble to your eyes including glaucoma. Just consult your family doctor or an ophthalmologist and get the right medication. Never buy by your own as it is not indicated in your condition.

Dear Lybrate reader conjunctivitis is an uncommon symptom of corona. But isolation is advisable in view of the prevailing corona infection. You can use tobramycin eye drops--one drop every 4 hours for 3 to 5 days. If the conjunctivitis subsides then corona infection is unlikely- history of travel /contact with corona patients if present -you contact health care provider and get tested for corona.

Most cases of pink eye are caused by a virus. Both viral and bacterial conjunctivitis can occur along with colds or symptoms of a respiratory infection, such as a sore throat. Wearing contact lenses that aren't cleaned properly or aren't your own can cause bacterial conjunctivitis. Lifestyle and home remedies: apply a compress to your eyes. To make a compress, soak a clean, lint-free cloth in water and wring it out before applying it gently to your closed eyelids. Try eyedrops. Over-the-counter eyedrops called artificial tears may relieve symptoms and many more to follow. We can discuss it further over a call or video meeting to proceed for most appropriate treatment.
