I HAVE HAD THE WORST 4 MONTHS OF MY LIFE!
It started 4 months ago when I caught bacterial conjunctivitis. I bought antibiotic eye drops and it cleared up in a couple of days, however, 3 days later I noticed red vessels in my eyes flaring up again. This went on for 2 months and with each flare up I would use antibiotic eye drops and in would go down. I went to my doctor who suggested that I could have blepharitis so she referred me to an eye specialist.
When I saw the first eye specialist I was using doxycycline already from my gp. He said my eyes looked fine and it does not look like bleph.
Eye doctor number two was rude and dismissive he said he saw some papillary injection under my eyelids and this is caused from allergies. I have never had allergies in my life!! And this started from the day i caught bacterial conjunctivitis, he could not see a correlation!!!!
Eye doctor number 3 said I have dry eye and some allergic response!
I am not convinced with this. This is ruining my life, my eyes are always mildly red and they feel itchy. I have used lid cleaner, warm compresses and they don’t reduce the redness at all.
I have had steroid eye drops that seemed to bring down some swelling. I have used antibiotic drops like fucithalimic which seemed to help a lot!!!!!
Why are no doctors helping or listening to me! This started 4 months ago since i caught bacterial conjunctivitis. I told the doctors about the bacteria blepharitis and they all just dismissed this and said blepharitis is from dandruff or malfunctioning glands! They didn’t even seem to know about this form of staph bleph!
Please someone out there help me!!!!! Anyone had a similar experience?? I feel like I am the only one in the world who has this annoying, hideous thing L
