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 (bacitracin and polymyxin) 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

When I put in eye drops (lubricant, antihistamine, any kind) eyes "react" and burn, sting, get watery and get red before clearing up. Why?
Does allergic conjunctivitis respond to the eye drops for bacterial conjunctivitis? And vice versa does bacterial respond to antihistamine drops?
Generally no. : If it is a bacterial infection, it should only respond to antibiotics much like allergic conjunctivitis should only respond to only allergy drop like antihistamine/and or mast cell stabilizer drop. However some infections can cause itchiness in which case an allergy drop is added in addition to an antibiotic drop.

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 (olopatadine): I prefer patanol (olopatadine) 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I used 1 drop of an old bottle of gentamicin drops for red eyes not relieved by antihistamine drops . Must i continue taking now, 4x/day for 5-7 days?
At least 5 days: Gentamicin is an effective antibiotic with no meaningful side effects when used topically on the eye. If started, you should use it for 5days or more to make sure you are not culturing gentamicin resistant bugs. As long as your vision is unaffected, and the eye is not swellen or painful, you can try this course. Otherwise see your ophthalmologist. ...Read more

What can I take for allergy medication if i'm trying to get pregnant? Can i take an antihistamine eyedrops medication?
Severely Itchy eyes for over a week that get bloodshot and swollen due to rubbing. Symptom subsides with anti-histamine eyedrops and pill, but effects wear off in 6-8 hours. No secretions. Am also recovering from a cold and cough.
It likely won't have: Any significant impact on a stye. Microwave a clean potato with the skin on for four minutes. Wet a wash cloth or small towel with warm or hot water. Squeeze out the excess water and wrap it around the potato. Apply this to the eye lid until it cools down (about 15minutes).This can be repeated intermittently. Please see your opthamologist if no improvement. ...Read more
Puffy eyes and dark circles that are not relieved by antihistamines, head elevation, or other lifestyle changes. What could be causing them?
Puffy Eyes: Puffy or swollen eyes can be caused by fluid retention, stress, allergies, hormone changes, and other factors. Other times we get puffy eyes after sleeping. This can be caused by too much sodium in the diet, which causes water retention. Puffy eyes can also be caused by lack of sleep or excessive alcohol intake. http://www.eyehealthweb.com/puffy-eyes/ ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Don't apply any cortisone type cream as only special prescription ophthalmic preparations should be used in those areas in case the cream leaks into the eye. It may be best for you to consult an ophthalmologist for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Huh?: Ondansetron allergy is very uncommon. I am no allergist, but there is no apparent overlap between the antihistamine H1 and H2 receptor and the antiemetic HT3 receptor that I am aware of.
