Hep b vaccine: This vaccine is not given to persons with active hep b infection or to those how have already generated antibodies resulting from prior infection or prior immunization.

Waste of time/money: This does nothing for your body. It would ignore the vaccine for the most part. It does nothing to treat or help damage caused by the original infection. Antibodies triggered by the vaccine are already present after an infection.

Hygiene, antibiotics: Depends upon the type of organism. If bacterial there are effective antibiotics. If viral hygiene is most important. If herpes, there is a good antiviral. Your ophthalmologist can evaluate your eye and sort this out.

A 35-year-old member asked:
Does z-pack always work for my sinus infections?
1 doctor answer • 3 doctors weighed in

Often not always: A z-pack, or 3 to 5 day course or zithromax (azithromycin) has been a commonly used antibiotic for over 15 years. It penetrates into the tissue well and stays there longer than other antibiotcs, so you can take it for only 5 days. But resistance by bacteria is dramatic because of this "hanging around". However it often makes you feel better because it has great anti-inflammatory properties too.
