Suggest Treatment For Oral Thrush And Strep Throat

default
Posted on Tue, 17 Apr 2018
Question: I have had three rounds of antibiotics in the last month and 1/2. 1st because of an fractured tooth that was infected, then pulled. Still had infection in gums so had a 2nd round. Then developed thrush and strep throat and finished with a z-pack. Now i seem to have some reaction going on with my eyes. They are swollen, both eyelids and under and itchy with a little redness. I am not using anything new that would cause this, benedryl is not helping. this has been going on for almost a week. looks really bad.

You are probably having conjunctivitis. Please send me the picture of your eyes or tell em is there any sticky discharge in the eyes?
Any redness in the eyes?
Any photophobia?
Don't rub your eyes. It is advisable to consult an ophthalmologist.
Wash the eyes with clean water. Put ciprofloxacin eye drops. Take tablet cetrizine 10 mg once. It is an anti allergic.
All the medicines I have prescribed will be available only on prescription.

It is only coming out from the outside. no redness or anything coming out from the eye itself. just seems to be filled with fluid and causing sagging and deep creases. Just a little itchiness.
I have not gotten a reply to my last sumit!
