Is it OK to give Floxamed with norfloxacine to my 7 years old daughter for eye infection ?

Hello, my daughter is 7 years old and we have recently moved to Tunisia with my husbands family. we had a strong wind storm and I think she has an eye infection due to dirt or bacteria . It is in just her left eye, but my father in law has had an eye infection for two weeks and is now improving. I would like to give his medicine to my daughter for her eye also, would this be okay? The first is called Floxamed with norfloxacine 15mg and the other is called Neopred with prednisolone and neomycine sulfate.Her eye is a bit swollen, red and glassy(as if she was crying).

Hi. My daughter is 7 months old. She has been getting eye infections. First she had a cold which was resolved but eye infection s still coming back. We took her for blood tests to check for allergies and got the results back yesterday.Her blood count came back normal. Allergy count is 28, they checked for all the come allergies, wheat, cats, dogs, yolk etc. and everything came back normal. Doctor said she definitely has an allergy and that I should give her Singulair and an anti-histamine for 2 weeks and then he wants to see her. I don’t understand why we cannot pick up what the problem is, don’t blood tests show everything?

My 10 year old son says his eyes feel dry but they feel like the outside corners of them stick. They are not particularly red. He is constantly opening his mouth and therefore his eyes so that they corners don t stick...what do you think? allergies? conjuntivitis? dry eyes? weird!

I have just been diagnosed with SLK and dry eye after almost two months of extreme pain, swelling, and discharge . I am a 54 year old female. The cornea specialist whom I saw said that I probably had it for years but it is now inflamed. How do you get this condition? What would make it inflame now? I am scheduled for a treatment of silver nitrate. I would like to know more about this condition and prognosis.
