Can you use antihistamine eye drops for irritation due to herpes in the eye?

Can you use antihistamine eye drops for irritation due to herpes in the eye?

Won't help: If you have active herpes in the eye, you need an antiviral medication, not an antihistamine. If you have 'dendrites', make sure you don't use anything with steroids. It will make it worse. Either way, i hope you're seeing an eye doc. ...Read more

Dry eye is treated: differently from other issues such as ocular inflammation or allergies. But, they commonly can present with the same symptoms. Usually lubricating eye drops are first line therapy for dry eyes. Studies have shown that Omega-3 supplements may help as well. We can also place punctual plugs and use topical cyclosporine ophthalmic emulsion drops are some of many potential treatments. ...Read more

Eye irritation for 5 weeks, had antibiotic eye drops, antihistamines, bathe them in water and still nothing. Gunky, red and painful, what could it be?

Eye irritation for 5 weeks, had antibiotic eye drops, antihistamines, bathe them in water and still nothing. Gunky, red and painful, what could it be?

History, exam, test.: Today i saw someone who started with pollen allergies but ended up with far worse allergy to antibiotic eye ointment given by a well meaning doctor. Are you allergic to allergens in your environment (pets, pollen)? Overly dry eyes? A slit lamp exam, thorough history and likely allergy testing are important here. ...Read more

Can i take polysporin eye drops with antihistamine?

Can i take polysporin eye drops with antihistamine?

Yes: The two medications are different classes, the former is for a bacterial eye infection, and the later is for the itching that occurs with allergies. A caveat would be if you are trying to decrease some untoward side effect of too much polysporin use, which can cause a contact dermatitis and conjunctivitis. I'd make sure that you follow up with your eye doctor if you are still experiencing eye issu. ...Read more
