Question: Hello Doctor, I'm feeling pain on my right eye lid and corner of the eye since i woke up this morning. I could not notice anything odd in the morning, but now I see the upper eye lid to be slightly swollen (please see attached pics). Every time I blink, I can feel the pain - fees like something inside eyelids or muscle pain starting from corner till the middle portion. Nothing really happened in the recent past that I can corelate this with. Could you suggest if i can do something to pacify it? thanks in advance!

Brief Answer:
Most likely eye infection called sty.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking query on this forum.
Have seen the photos attached by you.
Most likely you are having Sty.A sty is a red, painful lump near the edge of your eyelid that may look like a boil or a pimple. Sties are often filled with pus. A sty usually forms on the outside of your eyelid. But sometimes it can form on the inner part of your eyelid.
Wash eye with cold water thrice a day.
Apply eye ointment Tobramycin thrice a day.
Take antibiotic Cefuroxime 500 twice daily along with Tab sumoflam/willigosp(Diclofenac plus paracetamol plus serratiopeptidase) twice daily. Its a prescription medicine, so need to see a doctor for complete prescription.
Tab Fexofenadine 120 mg once daily (anti histaminic)

Take them for 5 days.
You would be fine.

I have a red patchy place on top of each foot. It looks like a mild rash, but is not raised and does not itch. It seems to have come up suddenly. I recently took 50 mg minocycline for eye infection for a duration of two weeks and am on lisinopril/hctz 20/12.5 for hypertension (for 10 years now). I am 57 yr old male, slightly overweight (6ft., 195 lbs.). What do you think of the red skin areas on the top of my feet?

My 4 month old litt;e baby boy has an eye infection since birth. He has a green discharge from the eye and constant watering of the eye which is making the skin ont he side of his face very red and sore. He has had two courses of eye drops (antibiotics) which made no difference at all. Lately I noticed that the second eye is becoming infected. I am currently just washing it with sterile water and cotten wool as I have been from birth but still no improvement. Should I see the dr again?
