User :   I am seeking medical help for chronic eye pain that i have been having for 2 months now that doctors have not been able to diagnose..
Doctor :   let me read ur query
Doctor :   have they done the pressure estimation of ur eyes ?
Doctor :   can u elaborate your symptoms of the eye ?
Doctor :   are u there ?
User :   Yes i have had every eye exam possible. I have even had a MRI done on my head and they cant find any medical cause. It started about 2 months ago after some type of reaction from sitting in a lavender an chamomille bath salt. My eyes hurt. Sometimes burn. They stay red and my under eyelids are slightly swollen an one eyelid is slighty more swollen than the other.
Doctor :   You may be having allergic conjunctivitis or a condition similar to it
Doctor :   have u been takng any medications ?
User :   When it first started the pain seemed to be in the whole eye and around the eye but now the pain seems to be mostly where its the most irritated an that is the inner corner of the eye an the under eyelids
User :   I took a steroid dose pack an it didnt help much
