    Suspect Bacterial Infection in Eye

    Or infection is spreading. I've been too depressed about being worthless and no longer working for the past year. I get up and my foot is swollen within 5-6 hours. Compression stockings do nothing. I use coban .. but even then I don't last two days as I get a severe headache with it.

    Anyway ... my vision is blurry. It's just the left eye. Been using OTC antibiotic drops and flushed with saline and warm compresses. It's watery and has infection constantly coming out (gross!)

    Should I be doing something else? All the clinics are closed until tomorrow morning. Figures.

    Go to a doctor. You need to be put on antibiotics or eye drops with stronger antibiotics. Is it red?
