Question: I was in my horse barn a few days ago and a gust of wind blew some hay dust into my right eye. The eye turned bright red, although my vision was not affected. There was no pain or swelling, only the white part of the eye turning red. How do I treat this problem?

Brief Answer:
Foreign body in eye

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Generally these kind of foreign body melts if small and few in number. If the hay dust was larger in number it stays for long and needs a carefully examined under slit lamp. it can be removed. Now your eye in this state.
Anyways you need antibiotic and anti allergies drops in your eye now.
Since these are available only with prescription after examination you need to meet your primary care physician.

My coworker complained today that her left arm was really sore and was having trouble pickup up her iced tea, tonight she called and said her arm was still extremely sore and that her left leg was swelling . I ve suggested she go to ER, but she s not sure she should. Should I continue to encourage her to seek medical help rather than wait to see her primary care physician tomorrow???

I have vertigo with a retracted ear drum. How does this happen? Over the past few years I have gone to my primary care and Ent with complaints about my ear leaking. They did not see anything. It would literally drain out. Now I have a bad case of vertigo since last Thursday and my primary care said I have a retracted ear drum. He put me on a steroid and sudafed and afrin . Said if its not better by Wednesday to go back o the Ent. What do you think?
