What causes redness and soreness on the left eye?
hsv 1 and 2 involvment of eye treated by antiviral antibiotic drop.
I answered once but due to technical problem there was problem in submission.So I am rewriting and submitting again. Involvement of eye in herpex simplex virus 1 is more because it manifests in face including area near eye. In this it will manifest as dendrite or herpes corneal ulcer. There will be haziness of vision and redness with epiphora. It will respond to antiviral antibiotic drop like acyclovir drop and ointment and idu drop.It is now marketed as zorivax. It is more toxic so used with more dilution. Strength for both eyes is .o1%. My advice is now to aimed at herpes involvement of eye. Suspecting other ailment and treatment is not recommmended.Other thinking can be just red eye say allergic viral or simple redness or chemo sis. Regarding rashes all over body it can-be in hsv 1 with recurrence it remain dormant and recurse when body immunity is low. hsv 2 involvement of eye is less but it can effect as herpes keratitis , involving deeper layer like endothelium and stroma in both case.Treatment is antiviral antibiotic.It is other wise known as genital herpes.This can effect eye during delivery if mother is affected
Why would it suddenly occur in eye if that is it 20 years after original hsv viruses?
What does an ulcer look like in the eye? They say I have corneal scratches but I had laser surgery on that eye so would that be from surgery or are scratches the same as ulcers?
To clarify is it herpes in the eye or just a secondary side effect when I get herpes symptoms in genitals?
hepes involvment of eye. it remain dorment and manifest when imunityis low.
optometrist are not doctor and no competent comment on any type of corneal ulcer20years is not period that you should get it early. ihave already informed that herpes remain dormant in body as reservoir in nerve and manifest when body immunity is low. it may take several years herpes ulcer are also called dendrite and it spread in nerve so there is anesthetic effect in cornea. hsv 2 is genital and effect in eye is seconder y.they donot lookalike scratches from surgery. as ihave said dendritic or look like spider net. this can be seen if stained.only scratches in cornea are not ulcer. they should have other symptoms like redness and itching.
inphotograph none eye is fully effected andcan be herpes.
in photograph one is fully involved and the other eye appears to be angular mild invovment the skin around eye is involved, have to wait for followup to see progress regarding full involvement of other eye. in XXXXXXX hunt syndrome it is like bells palsy in which one eye is involved.it can be herpes.it is type 2.
I don't think you are confirming my problem, and seem to talk about either option so I cannot understand your actual opinion.
HSV 1 and 2 involvement of eye.
Eye lash in eye is treated as foreign body. Once it is removed you should improve.
But you have history of herpes and suffering for about 20 years. It is recurrent your problem is confirmed. HSV 1 and 2. They are infectious and contagious. Dendritic ulcer can be seen after staining.
My opinion to you the best of my knowledge however you are free to take second opinion from others. Other option for treatment which you have tried but there was recurrence and it has not helped you. So if you want to you can follow my treatment which I have advised you.
