It sounds like a bug bite perhaps...  or did you eat something strange or come into contact with anything out of the ordinary? I would call your Dr ASAP. Walk-in and ask if you can see anyone even if its ER only. I've had eye trouble where I had to go to the ER, they took care of it right away. Does your local hospital have a hotline? Sometimes they have phone numbers where you can talk to an RN and describe what's happening and they can suggest some things you can do to take care of it until you see a Dr.

Actually to me it sounds like a STYE. Which is like an eye pimple! I have gotten one before and its from like makeup and stuff getting trapped...the best thing to so (sounds horrible) but as you feel it coming on take out contacts and don't wear for couple of days and WASH out your eye...with like SOAP! Since its already swollen you just have to let it ride out, but they have this STYE medicine at the pharmacy OTC thats like 8 bucks but takes away the pain. As for the swelling try putting ice on it as much as you can stand it...sorry girl those things are not fun! But mine went away to a not so noticeble point in a couple of days!


Try to WEBMD Stye and see what they say!

Oh it could be a stye! You see a regular doctor, if you need a specialist he'll refer you but you're not going to the glasses guy! He deals with vision, not eye-area reactions. If its a stye there is over the counter medicine, have hope!

DOCTOR that sounds bad. I dont know what could be wrong? I really think you should go in, what if this could compromise your vision!! A Bachelorette party is not nearly as important as your eye sight. Take care of it before it becomes too late!

I think when you drink while taking antibiotics it defeats the effect of the antibiotic.  Not sure how this would work out with eyedrops though.

My poor friend always got something like you described after 2 years of this stuff (off and on) - hers was all stress related.  It would start as a small bump under her eye, then another bump appeared a little close to it and then soon those 2 bumps formed one big one!!  Poor girl was popped bennies like they were pez!!


Glad to hear everything is good and u went to the drs!

Staph or Sty... Beet Juice and Acidophlus!!!! Lots of Beet Juice. When the liver is stressed then it creates a way to release or cannot fight off normal staph that is everywhere all the time. When our immunity's are up then we cam fight these things off. Lots of Beet Juice, avoid coffee and sugar... Relax and you will heal up quickly

if it applies..


use a 2nd form of protection if you are on the pill as antibiotics make it less effective.  and do so for up to a week AFTER you stop taking the whole cycle of antibiotics.
