Should I call the doctor if my baby has a bull’s eye rash?

Should I call the doctor if my baby has a bull’s eye rash?

Yes: There are a couple of things that a "bull's eye" rash could represent, and most of them should be followed by a medical provider. The most common of these is erythema multiforme, which represents a form of an allergic reaction that your child can get to a viral infection, amongst other things. Best to call your doctor and get it checked out. ...Read more

Rash (Definition)

What at-home techniques relieve epiphora in a newborn baby? My six-week-old has watery eyes all the time, even when she is not crying. Her doctor called this epiphora. Is there anything i can do at home to help this go away?

.

Epiphora : Epiphora (poor tear drainage) in the newborn period is extremely common - 2-4% of all newborns will have it. It is usually due to an obstruction of the tear duct (newborn tear ducts are tiny!) and 95% of all cases get better on their own by the time the child is 1 years old. Two things that can help are for you to gently massage the tear ducts (inner eye corners) periodically and to use a clean wet washcloth to wipe away any occasional crusting from the tear buildup. Other than that, you will just have to wait until your child grows out of it. If your child is in the 5% that do not improve by 1 year, then your child's doctor will recommend an ophthalmologist (eye specialist) who can do a simple procedure to open the ducts. If the eye becomes red, swollen, or develops green drainage, call your child's doctor since it may be infected. ...Read more

Hi doctors, was just wondering what is better vision in one eye called?

Hi doctors, was just wondering what is better vision in one eye called?

But there is no technical term to describe the eyes of someone with a natural difference between the eyes. It is simply a description: e.g. The right eye uncorrected sees better than the left eye for instance. ...Read more

For dysfunction: If your vision is disturbed, the pain is significant, there is skin tearing or bleeding through the skin, or the eye cannot move, then seek help. Also if the hit was enough to fracture the bones around the eye, then you need evaluation also. See your ophthalmologist for this. ...Read more

My bottom eye lid has been twitching for two weeks. Is this something that calls for a doctors visit?

Myokymia : This could be due to poor sleep, increased reading (working on computer) eye straining, need for glasses, too much caffeine or even stress. If normal sensation in the face and no weakness noticed this is probably a benign process. If persists or worsens or if accompanied by any other symptom then i would check with your physician. When in doubt call your doctor! hope you feel well soon. ...Read more

I have an eye disease called keraticonis .Is there any place to take care of this before i become blind i need help doc.?

Help is available: Keratoconus is a progressive condition which can cause a deterioration in vision, but the progression can be stopped with a procedure called corneal crosslinking. We perform this in-office procedure routinely as part of the CXLUSA clinical trial. In addition, intacs, RGP contact lenses, or corneal transplantation can all help to reshape the cornea and restore vision. ...Read more
