eye infection that won't go away? Updated!
I have an eye infection that just won't heal and im starting to get really frustrated. Its going on a month now, I'v spent hundreds of dollars going to see the eye dr and then more on my eye drops. My last bottle was $40!!! Today was supposed to be my last day of these drops and I thought it was almost gone. My eye was looking better, then I go to put in my last drop tonight and bam my eye is blood shot again. Anyone ever deal with this??? Or now of anything that could cause it??? I asked my dr what kinda infection it was and he said he'd have to culture it to be sure, but it wasn't that bad of an infection to have to cultlure. If this isn't a bad infection I would hate to have a "bad" one. Im going to call up again tomorrow and go in for new drops or something.
I'v thrown out all my makeup. Change the pillow cases. Washing my hands. I threw out my contacts and haven't put in another pair since this has started.
Update: I had to see a new dr today, the one I was seeing is on vaction. She said my infection has pretty much cleared up, now my eye is just irritated. Im supposed to coutinue my eye drops for another week and start a steriod today ... if my eye is looking worse or no improvement over night she said to come back in tomorrow. The steriods are supposed to clean up the redness within a couple drops of them. We'll see. Im not very hopeful at this point.
