I have red eyelids and people say I look like a stoner but I've never touched a drug in my life. How can I get rid of this?

Blepharitis, allergy: Common causes of eyelid redness include a chronic lid infection / inflammation called blepharitis (also seen with rosacea) and from ocular allergies. Definitely avoid the "get the red out" drops, as this leads to rebound redness and irritation. Warm compresses and gentle lid cleaning can help, as can nutritional suppl. Like fish oil capsules (taken orally). Zaditor (ketotifen) and alaway are good otc allergy. ...Read more

My 7 yr old raises his eyelids a lot and when asked if its cause they itch says yes. Most likely an allergy?  if so is there medicine that helps?

No, and no: Young kids with odd motions of the eyes or eyelids may have tics, which are habits that worsen with reminders (such as a parent talking about the tics), with stress, or with other stimuli (such as allergies). Raising eyelids is not usually seen with allergies, which tend to cause blinking, eye rubbing, itchy eyes, watery eyes, or reddish eyes. A pediatrician can evaluate and give an opinion. ...Read more

There is a pimple like that hurts inside my eyelid. Do I need to take in any medicine to stop it from getting bigger? What medicine?

Warm compresses: A "stye, " a.K.A. Hordeolum, is a plugged oil gland in the eyelid, sort of like a pimple. Most of the time, it can be effectively treated with warm compresses. These loosen the oils and allow them to be expressed from the lid. If persistent, a hordeolum can become a chalazion, which often needs either a steroid injection or surgical excision. See an ophthalmologist to be sure. ...Read more

My son has a painful bumb on the inside of his eyelid. I believe it's a stye, I found gentamicin in my medicine cabinet it has not expired yet can I u?

Ophthalmic drops ok: Perhaps 1 in 200 people have a pharmacogenetic mutation which causes severe sensitivity to all the aminoglycosides, including gentamicin--but only if given IV or orally--and these people are at high risk of ototoxicity resulting in deafness. Still, ask your pcp if it is ok, and check expiration date. ...Read more

How common is ptosis when using purtox? I'm thinking about having some purtox injections done, and I was wondering if ptosis was common with this drug? I don't want to have a drooping eyelid problem while I'm on vacation..

How common is ptosis when using purtox? I'm thinking about having some purtox injections done, and I was wondering if ptosis was common with this drug? I don't want to have a drooping eyelid problem while I'm on vacation..

This: This depends on the technique and the areas treated. Ptosis generally occurs when the product reaches the levator muscles of the upper eyelid. This can occur when attempting to inject the frown lines or the forehead. In many instances, this occurs when individuals request complete eradication of wrinkles or lines requiring greater than average doses. It is less likely with lower doses and introducing more than 2 cm (a fingerbreadth or more) above the eyebrow with multiple concentrated lower volume injections. ...Read more

I think I have bloodshot on my left eye at the top of my eye cover by my eyelid, any serious? No pain, hurt or swollen. Will it go away? Any medicine?

Bleed: This is a sub-conjunctival hemorrhage. As long as the vision is unchanged and there is no pain, everything should be fine. If it is a little irritated, then you can use an artificial tear up to 4 times a day to lubricate. This is due to a blood vessel leaking blood and is usually without cause. Sometimes straining or blood thinner can cause this. If it continues to happen, follow up with eye md. ...Read more

GP has referred me to a cardiologist to check for floppy valve syndrome, but could the pains in my side be from pancreatic cancer though? At 34 years old, odds are in my favour but don’t want to leave anything to chance.

GP has referred me to a cardiologist to check for floppy valve syndrome, but could the pains in my side be from pancreatic cancer though? At 34 years old, odds are in my favour but don’t want to leave anything to chance.

Whoa: Hey Barry, talk about this one with your physician. Physical exam should be sufficient to distinguish musculoskeletal pain -- which we all get in various places -- from deep pain due to some visceral problem. Pancreatic cancer simulating musculoskeletal pain usually is "back pain". The best treatment for worrying about very-unlikely medical disease is to focus on fitness -- hit the gym hard. ...Read more

After using eye drops the liquid keeps on coming out of my eyes though eye lids are closed. Doesn't it result in loss of medicine? Done lasik 3 day back

After using eye drops the liquid keeps on coming out of my eyes though eye lids are closed. Doesn't it result in loss of medicine? Done lasik 3 day back

Yes & no: The eyelid can hold only 1 drop of liquid before the liquid spills out. When you close your eyes, you'll squeeze out any excess fluid. Since the medicine has already had contact with the surface of the eye, it should still be effective. It helps to lean back, stare upwards, place one drop on the outer aspect of the eye then blink very slowly. That should minimize wastage & maximize effect. ...Read more
