An infection of the eyes’ conjunctiva – i.e. inner eyelids. Easily acquired by contagion and touching something then touching your eye.
Yep – contracted it on the first day I was in Bangkok. Inadvertently rubbed my eye. Within hours the symptoms started. Eye tears a lot, feels puffy.
Bangkok – so, medicines are easy to come by. Went to pharmacy. Picked up Tobramycin eye drops. $5 total.
Applied 2 drops each eye every 4 hours. 24 hours later, All’s well, and all signs of infection are gone..
