Suggest treatment for black eye and pain in eyes

Hi,
I have a black eye that appeared on Friday without swelling or pain. My eye began to ache on Sunday. As of Monday, and up through today, my eye has pin-pricking sensation with pressure behind the eye moving into the middle of my face (eyebrows, nose area, down to my teeth, and back up into the eye). My eye occasionally begins to water following the pin-pricking sensation and pressure.

Hello
It seems from the history that you are having black eye with pain, pricking sensation of the eyes...
These symptoms indicate acute infection in the form of cellulitis of eyelids.
This requires treatment by the use of antibiotics and antiinflammatory drugs.
Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for examination and treatment accordingly.

Thank you

I fell down my front stairs and hit my head really bad on Friday. I went to my Drs. office and she cleared me of having a concusion or any other damage. Now today is Sunday and I have a black eye on the portion closer to my nose. I will say that my one year old bumped the knot that i have in the center of my forehead from the fall last night. Could this be the cause or do i have something more serious going on

Hi, last Saturday i was hit very hard just above my eye with a hockey ball. The pain is still awful now, however i have no bruising around where the ball actually hit. It s still swollen and i have a black eye...Should there be bruising? if so, why is there not? It took the black eye a good 4 days to come out and bruises do normally take a while to show with me.

Hello, my 84 yo father in law has been suffering from frequent uti s for the past 3 years. originally diagnosed with kidney CA, then bladder CA. The last Pet scan was negative but still continues w/ frequent UTI s, strong urgency, and frequency with only about 200cc of output. He was place on 1000mg of Cellcept BID and 15mg of prednisone everyday due to his myasthenia gravis. He is now suffering from severe diarrhea. He was hospitalized last week with deydration. The Dr s did an EGD and colonoscopy and found a few little ulcerated areas in the small bowel and nothing real significant on the lower portion. They did multiple random bx s. We havent received those results yet. He is obviously immunosupressed due to his medications and has chronic infections (UTI s, cellulitis, staph etc)My question is... could he be suffering from the CMV in his urine causing all of the UTI s and in his colon causing all of the diarrhea and colitis-like symptoms?

I have seen 2 doctors in the last 7-8 months, I know I have vaginal dryness but I know bleed when I wipe and burn to open areas. There is a slight itch which I took 2 doses of Diflucan. My girlfriend who is an ER nurse looked today and said it looked like I have cellulitis. It hhas kept me up thru the night and I am very uncomfortable.I have called the Bioidentical Hormone replacement therapy md s. None take insurance, it is all self pay, which I can not afford, My daughter is a breat cancer survivor, which is one reason I avoided hormones. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank You
