My eyes

This afternoon I put on some new make_up. Later on I went swimming in the river. Now I have noticed that both my eyes are red and one has gunk forming in it and clouding the vision in that eye. It also hurts to touch. Any suggestion son what it is and how to get rid of it? I immediately cleaned my face when I got home. This happened rather quickly.

  • I know this may be extreme, but in the military they use hand sanitizer to clean infections in the eye

  • i would either make an appointment for the doctor or go to the ER. rivers could have run off and you could have some sort of reaction or more likely an infection.

    sorry if i seem harsh i've actually gotten ring worm from a fun day at the river so GL!

  • If it doesn't get better soon, I'd see a doctor asap...rivers have been known to carry a lot of bacteria. Best of luck! :)

  • Go to the doctor. Sounds like an infection or possibly an allergic reaction.
