Suggest Treatment For Eye Infection

default
Posted on Thu, 26 Feb 2015
Question: I woke up 3 days ago with one eye matted shut, showing symptoms of pink eye and my skin is sore to the touch under my chin in the neck area (double chin area). I've treated the eye and it seems to be getting better, but the neck isn't. I don't feel any swollen glands, but was told that it was probably related to the eye? What do you think?

Brief Answer:
Likely to be due to eye infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to Healthcaremagic
Greetings of the day
Dear Ms

Going by description of your symptoms it is likely to be due to Submental and Submandibular lymphadenitis which would likely be due to eye infection.
It would be very helpful if you could provide me with clinical photograph for further assessment.

In the meantime I would suggest you the following

1 Hot water fomentation to chin area

2. Anti inflammatory drug like Ibuprofen will be helpful


Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.


Take care

Best regards
