Bloodshot eyes, clear discharge, fuzzy vision. No pain. Not allergic conjunctivitis or dry-eye. Prednisolone helped, but symptoms returned. Ideas?

Bloodshot eyes, clear discharge, fuzzy vision. No pain. Not allergic conjunctivitis or dry-eye. Prednisolone helped, but symptoms returned. Ideas?

One of the major symptoms of dry eyes is tearing because the body is trying to overcome the dryness by periodically producing tear. I would not advise using prednisone for this condition. ...Read more

Can honey lessen seasonal allergy symptoms?

Can honey lessen seasonal allergy symptoms?

Probably not: Honey has been anecdotally reported to lessen symptoms in people with seasonal allergies. But these results haven't been consistently duplicated in clinical studies. Still the idea isn't so far-fetched. Honey has been studied as a cough suppressant and may have anti-inflammatory effects. In addition, some experts point out that honey can contain traces of flower pollen — an allergen. And one treatment for allergies is repeated exposure to small amounts of allergens. For now, however, it appears that honey may just be a sweet placebo. But don't let that stop you from using it in food and beverages. Just don't give honey to children younger than 1 year because of the risk of infant botulism, a rare but serious form of food poisoning. Ozone air purifiers. ...Read more
