Thanks for posting your query.

Episcleritis is benign self limiting inflammation of the thin tissue below the conjunctiva of eyes.
It usually causes redness of the inflamed eye or later on a nodule formation, but rarely the tissue may appear yellow and wrinkly, rarely it may also be painful or tender.

So dont worry. It should resolve in a couple of weeks.

However please do follow up with your treating doctor to rule out underlying systemic or autoimmune illness.

Hope I have answered your query. Do write back if you any doubts.

Wishing you good health.
