Get evaluated: This rash could represent a seborrheic dermatitis or it may be an infection. I would recommend that you have it evaluated by a dermatologist or your physician.

A 32-year-old member asked:

What is the recovery time for bacterial contagious pinkeye treated with antibiotic eye drops?

Dr. Richard Bensinger
Ophthalmology 52 years experience
Pinkeye: Most pinkeye is due to viral infection. The 40 or so viruses which can cause this have a symptom cycle of 3 to 10 days of activity until recovery except for the several that cause corneal immune deposits which can last longer. Antibiotic eyedrops do not treat viral disease but merely prevent secondary bacterial invasion. They do not alter the time cycle of the viral infection.

Unlikely: Watering and eye discomfort may paradoxically be seen with dry eyes. Certainly you may need glasses but if you are seeing clearly and these are your only symptoms it is likely irritation. Other causes can be blepharitis, some types of allergy, infections and occasionally iritis.

??signs??: Kids capable of waking off an injury will, they are more interested in playing & seldom stop unless something really hurts. If no obvious deformity or discoloration of the skin, you might watch it for a while & place a cool compress to help the pain & reduce the swelling. Do this only if the kid can make a fist & extend it & roll the hand back & forth. If not, get it checked now.
