Pinkeye and the Sty

That sounds like some weird character and his sidekick, the kind you watch in Cartoon Network. But in actuality it refers to my eyes. Specifically my left eye. Which has a big and very painful sty on the upper lid.

My eyes, both of them, itch and tear. I have a mild fever (99.2 F). The whole left side of my face throbs and hurts. I went to the doctor. He said I have conjunctivitis and cellulitis, and prescribed oral antibiotics and an eye cream. Great. I look horrible and feel so very tired. Why would an eye infection make me feel tired, mind you?


  1. Bleh! Sounds miserable. Hope you are feeling better soon.

  2. Blah. I know what you are talking about. It's a horrible feeling--I wear contacts and have scratched my eye a handful of times--it's an odd sense of tiredness that you get. Almost like your balance is off or something... I always keep my glasses close by!

    Anyways, I hope you feel better...:)

  3. Hope you recover soon. Anything to do with the eyes is so uncomfortable. Take it easy.

  4. awww..thats terrible. Please feel better..SOON.

  5. oh dear....that isn't fun. I hope it heals quickly!

  6. Que te mejores pronto. Recuerdo que algunas personas le llamaban a la conjuntivitis "ciguatera". Es un fastidio, pero como todo en la vida, pasa.
