Just noticed my left eye is really red. No pain, no itching, no pus, no vision loss. Just red. On computer for 4 hours straight. Is that the cause?

Bleed: Sounds like 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! ...Read more

Back and sides of neck itches. Turns red and feels kind of like a sunburn. For a couple of weeks now. Gets worse wearing my scarves and a sweatshirt?

This sounds like: A contact rash, possibly from your scarves. Is the rash anywhere else? How long does it last? I would recommend having it checked by your doctor. Or if you are a HealthTap Prime member, getting a consult where you can send a photo to one of us. You can also try not wearing the scarves and see if it goes away. Antihistamines may help temporarily. ...Read more
