Can you transmit to your Eye during ob?

Recommended Posts

anotherwriter

Hey, I am almost through an ob- not bad, just a small line that looked like a scratch. But my eyes are freaking out! They itch so bad, and it was like a combo of pink eye and a sty, and now my eyelids are so itchy and one is twitching. I do not have any medical insurance, this isn't a severe sign of keratitis, is it? I have been waiting for it to die down for almost a week. Is keratitis being severe rare?

Do you have any reason to think you may have spread it to your eye? I mean, do you remember touching your eye after touching your ob or something to that effect?

If you think you may have spread hsv to your eye you really need to have an opthamologist take a look right away. You would need treatment.

Let us know what happens and good luck!

Hey Shayna!

No, and to be honest, the ob was so minimal, and I have been washing my hands all the time. I cannot tell if it's just a normal eye infection, and I cannot really afford to visit the doctor. I was laid off, and I have no insurance anymore! :( Is it safe to wait for a week to see if it clears up?:???:

Hiya anotherwriter!

Maybe you could google to see if there is anything you can do from home to help heal pink eye.(just a thought)

If it doesn't heal up fairly soon, I'd try and have someone look at it.

Go to the doctor for peace of mind

I was freaking out like you. Itchy eyes, light sensitivity...I went to the doctor for peace of mind. I fortunately have insurance. Find a free clinic or something to go to, but I would recommend going. The stress can only make things worse.

      Do you shop at Amazon.com? Next time you shop, you can also automatically donate a portion of the proceeds to the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society.  This Society organizes the symposium on latency of herpes viruses.  It was here that Keith Jerome announced that he had edited almost 20%-30% of latent HSV in mice last year. (http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/departments/neurology/CALS/Documents/2018 CALS abstracts.pdf) You have to go through smile.amazon.com to set up ongoing donations whenever you shop through smile.amazon.com. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Yes, I understand that I must always start at smile.amazon.com to support Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society. Why is there a separate URL? The AmazonSmile program offers customers a new benefit, making a donation to your favorite charity. We're able to provide this benefit to you when you choose to start your shopping at smile.amazon.com in part because we expect AmazonSmile to grow primarily through word of mouth instead of paid advertising—and this enables us to fund donations to our customers’ favorite organizations.

      WOW, it's true.  So cool!  Thanks for sharing. In my view, for the time being, we can just help support the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society, rather than asking Fred Hutch to set something up through Amazon.   Here is an important message though, you have to go through smile.amazon.com to do the donation.
