Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You are most likely having conjunctival hemorrhage in your eyes which means bleeding under the white of the eye.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

There are tiny blood vessels in the white of the eye (sclera) which can burst when one coughs or sneezes.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

This is not usually something serious and goes away in due course of time.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you following me?

Customer:

yes i am..so what should i do?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You should just wait it out

Dr. Shahzad MD :

It should go away in a week or so time

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Seems like a viral infection that caused all this.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Should settle in a few days.

Customer:

alright then. i will do so. if the coughs goes so does the conjuctival haemorage?.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Good question

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Usually not.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

what I mean to say is that once the fragile blood vessels burst more vessels usually do not burst.

Customer:

in that case it should wait?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

But its still important to suppress your cough

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You can take over the counter cough suspensions.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

But in any case this is not something serious or sight threatening

Dr. Shahzad MD :

It will heal up in a few days time

Customer:

ive taken robitussin for dry cough ..its not doin any good...what do you think i should take?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Dextromethorphan, or DM, is the most common cough suppressant.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Try using that

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you with me

Dr. Shahzad MD :

any more questions?

Dr. Shahzad MD :
