I have jsut scratched my eyelid and my eye, it is really stinging and has gone very blurry. Is there anything i can put on it? Plus have got gestational diabetes and know this can effect your eyes, is it ok to leave? Sorry if i sound a bit dim but this diabetes thing is all new to me
Your eyelid and eye will understandably sting etc when scratched because it is a very sensitive area. The only advice I can give is to make sure you have cleaned the area with some cool, clean water and pat dry gently. I think the thing with diabetes and eyes is only if you don't keep your sugars under control? It may be sore for a few days, but if you notice a lot of discharge or anything else out of the ordinary, go to see the doctor straight away xx
Agree with alypaly - I scratched my eye ( well, actually the hairdresser did with his finger ) and ended up at the eye dept of hospital. There was a scratch on the cornea and I had to put antibiotic ointment in ( better than drops IMO) for a few days.Doc said I did the right thing by going to hospital.
