In brief: Eye drops

Episcleritis is an inflammation of the covering over the white part of your eye (the episclera).
Irritation such as dry eye and allergies can stimulate it, so try using artificial tears and/or anti allergy drops. In severe cases, nonsteroidal drops (like voltaren (diclofenac) or bromday) can help, or you may need a short burst of steroids (predforte). In that case, see your eye doc.
