Ophthalmologist Dr. Hassan Sanooj U V's  Response
the drugs you used are not for bacterial infection. they are commonly used for allergy. but when using hydrocortisone you should stick to the dosage prescribed by an eye doctor and need to taper before discontinuation. otherwise it is possible that the problem may recur. consult with an eye doctor to confirm whether you have an allergic signs in your eyes.
