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

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

What is the best allergy treatment for eyes I mean the best eye drops for allergy. Not over-the-counter drugs. Oral antihistamine alone not helping.

Patanol: I prefer patanol drops. There are others which are similar. The important thing is to wash your face with a cool wash cloth before applying to remove any lingering allergens from your facial skin and around your eyes. This helps my patients a great deal. If you're not better with drops see an allergist for testing, you may want to consider allergy shots. ...Read more

Swollen eyelids: We have no pictures to evaluate. It may be an infection, Blepharochalasis, contact dermatitis, trauma etc. Is it one sided or bilateral? What antihistamine did you take and how long ago? You are encouraged to consult through HealthTap prime for a relevant evaluation or seek medical attention locally. ...Read more
