Which is a better product for routine contact lens moisturizing? Blink Contacts or Visine for Contacts?

Eczema: You need to keep irritants to a minimum. Use only sensitive skin products. No fragrance or dye. Find something to stop the itch, like Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) Claritin or Zyrtec. Eczema gets worse if it's constantly being scratched. Also try a bleach bath. 1 cup bleach, in a full tub of water. Try this weekly. If no improvement, have it rechecked. ...Read more

Can you tell me about drug test packets you can buy at walgreens, will they detect bleach or visine if either of these were added to it?

Not generally: The home products are for people to see if they (or family) members are using drugs and if it is showing up. They do not detect adulterants. However, the tests that employers and others use DO test for things like bleach and nitrates (visine) and they WILL be detected and result in failing the test. If you are talking about yourself, worry more about a potential drug problem than getting caught. ...Read more
