My head seems to be leaking fluid. What could be the reason of this?
Hi im not sure which category my question would fit into, so i decided on eye purely as it is closest geographically to my problem.. I completed a tandem skydive 2 days ago but managed to get sunburn over my scalp, forehead and nose at some point during. Since then my head has swollen somewhat and my scalp is scabbing, (this i realise is just my skin healing from the sunburn) But what worries me is that my head seems to be 'leaking' fluid. Im not sure if its from a scab or not but some form of fluid keeps dripping down and across my temple and its pretty weird. I have just woken up and my pillow has a few watermark stains, they appear almost yellow in colour. Sorry i know this is not eye related but if no one can suggest anything would you be able to direct me to somewhere more suitable? Thanks in advance (Even as i type fluid is running down my scalp.. very attractive!) Regards Steve
Hello.welcome.There might be some fluid filled blobs formed on your scalp because of sunburns.These blobs have burst causing leaking.Local dressing with antibiotics will cure it.May be you can consult your family physician.
