I got soap in my eye and lately my eye has been hurting in the back and feeling funny like a cross eye feeling and I saw a flash of light one time?

Type of soap?: If you got soap in your eye, the 1st thing to do is copiously rinse your eye with tap water, eye rinse, or normal saline right away. Do this this for several minutes. I assume you are talking about bathing soap. Stronger soaps such as wash detergents, dishwasher soaps, industrial soaps are far more concentrated & may significantly irritate your eye. After significantly rinsing your eye, see an MD. ...Read more

Is oil on your face skin supposed to be stingy to EYES? Stings when oil gets in, eg. Squinting, crying. I put no chemical on skin. Use chem- free soap

How do I clean my eyelids? I've been told I have blepharitis and that cleaning my eye lids will help this. - how does one clean their eyelids? - which part of the eyelids am I trying to clean? - how do you clean your eyelids without getting soap in your e

Blepharitis: Blepharitis is an inflammation of the eyelid margins. This often looks like "dandruff" at the base of the eyelashes when examined with high magnification. Removing this "dandruff" with eyelid scrubs will improve the blepharitis.

Using your index finger, you can gently scrub the base of the eyelashes. Commercially-available lid-scrub pads, such as those made by ocusoft, have a mild detergent that cleans well.

An alternative is to mix your own detergent with one part baby shampoo diluted with 20 parts water. Once you have scrubbed your eyelids, rinse them well with water. If you get the mild detergent in your eye, it does not sting like soap does. ...Read more

I have touched newspapers and washed hands with soap and DettolAntisepticLiquid b4 remove my lens. Will there be gems/worm eggs from paper get into eye?

No: In the U.S., where the tap water is clean, washing hands with tap water is fine... and regular soap is a bonus. In general, nothing else is needed (no Dettol nor other antiseptics). Also, "worm eggs" in newspapers is not a normal worry... unless the newspapers have been used to catch pet poop. If poop is involved, one can go ahead with using regular soap. ...Read more

The scenario you describe is not in any way a risk for HIV infection or a way that HIV is transmitted. Your skin is a good barrier. In thirty years of this worldwide epidemic the 'casual' contacts in the household of HIV patients do not get infected regardless of their daily contacts. ...Read more

Superficial wound under eye, doctor said to wash it with soap everyday and apply antibiotic oinment before sleeping. Worried about getting water in it?

Depends what you: Mean by superficial wound. If it's a laceration that's superficial or skin abrasion on your lower lid, the antibiotic ointment will prevent it from getting water on it. Superficial abrasions heal quickly. Would not worry about it. Deep lacerations are the more serious to worry about. ...Read more
