I have pus in my eyes due to folliculitis, will I become blind ?

Advanced Folliculitis , Dermo ignored my symptoms, puss in eyes for about 2 months until I went to the ER because I couldn't see. I received antibiotics there, and more from my primary care doc. My eyes are burning from the pus, could I go blind? Am I at risk for anything else? I ve had follliculitis for 2.5 years. Eventually, all pustules closed, I had a major network of pathways from the scalp dumping pus into my face . The pus was not draining, went into my eyes, eating away my lower eye lid. I am now on anit biotics. 10 days, eyes still burn like crazy. What s happening? I have major scarring on my face, are my eyes at risk for blindness?

Thanks for query,
You require treatment for your scalp problem,you might have fungal infection on your scalp with infection or infected dermatitis.
Consult dermatologist and eye surgeon for eye infection as soon as possible.
Clean your scalp and eye with plane water.
Ok and bye.
