Swollen, red eyes with whitish creamy secretion, pain when bending, swollen nose. Suggest - Online Doctor Chats
I am Dr. XXXXXXX
How can I help you?
I have been suffering from a swollen left eye from the past 2 days.
Is there any other symptom other than swelling?
Some whitish creamy secretion is coming every some time which I have to clear out
I am currently in UK. Been here from past 1 month
Ok. Is there any itching, pain or discomfort?
I have had this problem earlier also
no itching. pain yes when I bend and blood flows into it. Discomfort as in vision getting impaired
Apart from the eye also got a swelling in the nose
the eye is perfectly OK
it is just the upper and lower eyelinds
After getting up from sleep both the eyelids kinda become stuck
THat is what the doctor in India had said the last time it had happened
But I was unable to identify what the cause was
You may not be able to find the cause. it can be just dust. Or some specific particle in the dust.
Could be because of some food item too?
I am not allergic to anything in particular
I got swelling in the nose as well
Though you are not allergic generally, it can develop anytime of the life.
Swelling in the nose along with swelling in the eyes are indicative of an allergic reaction.
okay. do I need to take any medication and what precautions do I need to take?
For the medications, it is important to visit a general practitioner. That is to make sure what the diagnosis is after an examination.
Prescription would be required to purchase the medicines.
As for precaution, you need to do 2 things.
1. Always wash your face with soap on return to your room from outside.
2. Drink plenty of water. At least 3 litres per day.
