Pink swollen eyelid, sore throat/cold. Dr said stye, but there is no bump at all! Just an overall swelling/pain. Incorrect diagnosis perhaps?

Pink swollen eyelid, sore throat/cold. Dr said stye, but there is no bump at all! Just an overall swelling/pain. Incorrect diagnosis perhaps?

Probably right: Most styes start out with diffuse swelling of a part or sometimes the whole lid. As your body starts to deal with it, it becomes localized to the more typical focal redness and swelling. I hope you were told to apply heat 4-5 times per day which is in face the best treatment.

Hi, I lost voice after taking cough syrup but am also having slow sporadic eyelid twitches, are these related? Have tight chest and sore throat.

Hi, I lost voice after taking cough syrup but am also having slow sporadic eyelid twitches, are these related? Have tight chest and sore throat.

No: Cough syrup does NOT cause the loss of vocal function. The symptoms, except the sporadic eyelid twitches, are most likely the result of a viral infection. These types of infections respond to conservative treatment and your immune system. If the symptoms persist for more than 3 weeks, consult your primary doctor. I can not emphasize enough not to take an antibiotic for these symptoms.

Sore swollen eyelids and a sore throat, what can cause them?

Sore swollen eyelids and a sore throat, what can cause them?

Viral infection: The combination of sore throat and swelling with irritation in the eyes is highly suggestive of a viral infection (pharyngitis plus conjunctivitis) for which there is no known treatment that will cure it. Standard advice is to stay well hydrated (drink plenty of fluids), take Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen for the pain, and apply hot/wet compresses to your eyes. Then just add a tincture of time.

Sore throat, cold and now one swollen, slightly pink, painful eyelid. Hurts when I blink. Not pink on inside. Hoping its not alrgc reaction. Thoughts?

See a doctor: Although this is not likely to be something serious without seeing it there is no way in which to be sure. Since your vision is so precious there is no reason to risk further damage. Go and have a professional examine you. Good luck.

Yesterday my eye hurt & I had a sore throat, a ringing in my Lt ear and a headache. Today I have a pus spot inside of my Lt eyelid. What could it be?

Yesterday my eye hurt & I had a sore throat, a ringing in my Lt ear and a headache. Today I have a pus spot inside of my Lt eyelid. What could it be?

See a doctor: Without seeing your eye, I can't be sure, but it sounds like infectious conjunctivitis. the other possiblity, which would be more worrisome is a periorbital skin infection, possibly sinusitis and a middle ear infection. It makes sense to see a doctor at urgent care for an exam. Infections in and around the eye can be very serious, since the eye is so close to the brain. Anitbiotics probably needed

I've been have sharp/dull/achy eye pain with head pain today. Sore throat that has come and gone and some coughing. What could this be?

See PCP: Then see your eye doctor. May be a viral syndrome. The same virus that causes upper respiratory infections can also cause viral conjunctivitis. You also need the eye doc to check your eye pressure and look for inflammation in your eye.

See your doctor: An ongoing sore throat, along with conjunctivitis, could be a sign that you have a sinus infection, mono, or something else that may require treatment. I recommend that you make an appointment with your doctor today. I hope that helps!

Is it common for pink eye to show up when a cold and severe sore throat are on their way out?

Is it common for pink eye to show up when a cold and severe sore throat are on their way out?

Pink eye: Absolutely! Viruses can show up anywhere. Start with nose, then mouth, ears, eyes. No one pattern and no given time frame. Having said that, if the eye is red, tender, painful, crusty, has thick yellow or green discharge, or visual changes, you may have a secondary bacterial infection and get to your doctor ASAP. Don't delay eye symptoms.

Sore throat and swollen bottom eye lid after oral? Kinda paranoid?

Sore throat and swollen bottom eye lid after oral? Kinda paranoid?

Oral??: If you mean oral sex, and your question is are you being paranoid, then answer is no. Anyone should be concerned having any symptoms after unprotected. ..Oral. Having said that, chances of you contracting a disease is prob low, depending on your partner (if he (she?) has multiple partners, and is a drug addict, chances are higher). Bottom line: i'd get it checked out with your pcp.

I have an itchy nose and can't open my eye. Also have a bit of a sore throat. Any suggestions?

Allergic reaction?: Good morning, a combination of itchy nose, swollen eye lids, and sore throat suggests an allergic reaction to inhalant allergens. Antihistamines such as Claritin (loratadine) reduce allergic reaction; eye drops such as visine help to relieve congestion of the inside of the eyes, and decongestants such as sudafed relieve the congestion; advil relieves the pain related to these.
