Shingles and Eyes. Thread discussing Shingles and Eyes | Patient

I was not told what to look for, and didn’t think to ask at the time. The eye needs the lid for protection. i have shingles that initially started above my left eyebrow. It’s quite common for the upper or lower eyelid to become swollen because of a meibomian cyst (also called a chalazion). It started with a swelling on my eyelid which I thought was a stye. To be certain, there are realms of science that would indicate I have not and will never have a dog inside my eyelid.

My daughter is 23 years old and had shingles in her eye two years ago. Shingles is caused by a type of herpes virus, called varicella zoster, the same virus that causes chickenpox. I have suffered from 4 shingles outbreaks in the last 5 years (can we say stressed??) Mine normal start on my lower back, travel to my stomach, up my chest, to my neck, and face. Hi – just found this group. The eyelids have many functions, including protecting and lubricating the eye, producing oil secretions for the eye, and helping to drain away tears. Ten days ago, the virus that had been lying dormant in my left 5th cranial nerve since I contracted chicken pox at.

A significant number of HSV-2 positive people have never had symptoms like blisters and sores, which means that many people may be transmitting the virus to others unknowingly, and because they’re asymptomatic they’re unlikely to get tested. I have some sores on my face in a couple of places but have one sore by my eye adjacent to my eyebrow, I only had a sore on the right side yesterday, that is causing my eyelid to swell. Wow, I’ve had a similar experience. Symptoms of blepharitis include inflammation of the major part of the eyelids, with crusting or scales at lid margins. Resembling a pimple on the eyelid, a stye can grow on the inside or outside of the lid. I had shingles in this area and the top of my head on the right side 3 years ago.

Q. I was diagnosed with Bell’s in June of 2010. Molluscum contagiosum is a rare viral infection that is exclusive to humans. I am a 25yrs old female and was under tremendous personal and professional stress for past two years. In this condition, the protective membrane lining the eyelids and exposed regions of the eyeball, called conjunctiva gets swollen, itchy and red. One to 14 days after you start feeling pain, you will notice a rash of small blisters on reddened skin.

These days, castor oil, like many of mother nature’s gifts, are at best dismissed as an ‘alternative’ therapy. About two weeks ago I had an odd bump on my nose, thought it was going to turn into a pimple. Last Sunday I was working on my car (piece of shit Kia) with a friend. In the majority of cases, styes get better within 1 week without any medical intervention. Treatment of this nerve pain and blisters of shingles, is the focus of this work. Prescribed clindamycin and metronidazole, b.i.d., 7 days.

These blisters can also develop on the inner thighs and on a woman’s cervix. You should know Answers to your question are meant to provide general health information but should not replace medical advice you receive from a doctor. Eyelid swelling is the enlargement of either or both the lower and upper eyelids. Dr. I didn’t realize at the time, but the shingles was also on my scalp. I’m a 49-year-old female.

Blepharospasm can happen to anyone, and the causes in any given individual may not be clear. Sometimes a cause for repeated and serious eyelid spasms cannot be found. Hi I am a 44 yr. A few months ago I was told that I also had blepharitis and that it would never go away. I have been suffering for over a decade with pressure in head confusion spacey feelings, brain at one time felt as if it were floating head, tired feelings, eye sensitivity from light and air, eyes feel like there crossing from time to time. The eye is a highly sensitive organ to light, pressure and other sensations like itching and pain.
