How can I help you?
Hi Dr XXXXXXX
I think i talked with you yesterday
How are you feeling now?
These are antibiotic
and are good treatment for the same.
She advised me to take Moxifloxicin one every hour and Tobramycin 5 times in a day...
Has it helped you?
Started using this yesterday evening only...i don't see any change Doctor... its still the same...
She has given paracetramol tablets also since i feel pain in my eyes
Acute conjunctivitis as I mentioned to you yesterday may last for 3-5 days
depending on the type of infection.
As antibiotics take 2-3 days to produce improvement
ok...she didnt mention about the type of infection...so i am not sure..
I would suggest you to continue these eye drops.
It will benefit you.
I understand you would experience some pain with it.
yes... eyes are paining a bit...
Avoid rubbing eyes.
Washing your eyes with XXXXXXX warm water mixed with small amount of salt can reduce the irritation.
ok... today only i feel some king of irritation once in a while..
You can try it also.
It is good to know that the irritation has come down since yesterday.
Do continue the drops.
You should be better in the next couple of days.
If the irritation or watering of eyes increases
ok Doctor sure... i will continue the drops...
you can report back to your doctor.
you are being managed rightly.
yeah.. she asked me to come back on Monday if it doesn't reduce...
You can reach us any time if there is any problem.
ok Doctor... Thanks a lot for patiently listening to my concern and advising...
Bye for now...

Thanks for consulting me.
Wish you a speedy recovery.
Bye for now.
