Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
welcome to JA
do you wear contacts?
Please enter the chat
any other medical problems or medications?
I have got daily contact lenses but don't use them unless I go out of an evening. I haven't worn contact lenses since the first eye infection
well, it is likely that you have a resistant bacteria
both medications you are taking contain chloramphenicol
honestly, I have not seen that used in YEARS in the states for eye infections
usually we use gentamicin or erythromycin
i would get a prescription for a different eye medication
gentamicin would be my first choice
are you still there?
I have an appointment with my doctor on Monday. Will he be able to prescribe a better medication as you suggest?
they are available in the UK
Thank you for your advice.
I would print out this chat and ask for gentamicin or erythromycin
you are welcome
like I said, likely a resistant bacteria :-)
no big deal
I hope that I provided you with excellent service? :-)?
