My 15 years of experience of using my method of keratitis prevention show that even when applying the garlic solution at least 3 times a day to a healthy feeling eye a relapse is still possible. In the past few years it has happened to me once a year: at the end of September 2013 and in the beginning of November in 2014.
And here's the latest one in 2015:
Nov 21, Saturday. In the morning, when I woke up, I found out that the left eye was very red, watery, there was a feeling of something stuck in the eye, a slight pain when applying pressure to the eye, sensitivity to light – all these are the symptoms of keratitis. I immediately started applying the garlic solution every 20-30 minutes to the affected eye and every 1-2 hours to the healthy eye. By the evening there was a slight improvement - the eye was less teary. During the night I barely got any sleep as I was applying the solution every half an hour to an hour.
Nov 22, Sunday. In the morning the eye was better: no tears, no feeling of something stuck in the eye, much less pain when putting pressure on the eye, though the eye was still very red. During the day I kept applying the garlic solution every 0.5 - 1 hour, during the night every 1-2 hours.
Nov 23, Monday In the morning the redness was the only symptom left. I kept applying the garlic solution every 1-2 hours during the day and every 3 hours during the night.
Nov 24, Tuesday In the morning the eye was slightly red. During the day I kept applying the garlic solution every 1-2 hours and every 3 hours during the night.
Nov 25, Wednesday The affected eye is back to normal.
That was it. The starting relapse of the keratitis was prevented. Now, for the next 4-5 days, it's necessary to increase the interval between the applications gradually, to my usual 4 hours.
Hi Sarah, I have had this virus for a while and never experienced numbness. I think we can agree that there is no normal when it comes to this virus b/c it affects everyone differently. If you are really uncomfortable, maybe you should see a doctor just to check things out.
