INFECTION :'(

Writing about web page http://www.aftershingles.com/shingles.html

The past few days have been nasty. Starting from Monday, where a little red spot above my eyelid was just a pimple.
Next few days, I realised that it wasn't disappearing, and a few more came along by Wednesday, so I went to my GP from which I was given a tube of Fucidin …. this didn't help …
Thursday, feeling a bit worse, took another day off work.
Friday, felt the same …. I wouldn't expect an instant cure in 2 days.
Saturday … AGONY …. my eyelid was unmovable, I nearly jumped out of my skin looking in the mirror and the pain was so immense. I got rushed to A&E by my dad…

Following a few days of torturous pain, sleepless nights and days off work. Yesterday I was just diagnosed with "Shingles" around my left eye from South Warwickshire Hospital. Transferred to the eye clinic in Coventry Hospital, and took back home a heap of prescriptions.

Current prescriptions:

  • 4.5g Zovirax Eye Ointment (5x daily)
  • 4g Chloromycetin Ophthalmic 1% Ointment (3x daily)
  • 800mg Aciclovir AntiViral Tablets (5x daily)
  • 50mg Diclofenac Tablets (3x daily)

Now …

It's 6:40am on a cold sunday morning… the pain that subsided about 5 hours ago has come back. Still feeling restless. My left eye is irritable, but at least I can still open it without too much of that 'glued-in' feeling. I wish I could clean up the crap around my left eye, but that would spread the infection even further. My glands are also heavily swollen.

My room has practically turned into a hospital bed overnight, with medication all over the place.

Although I've noticed a significant improvement ever since taking the medication (after waiting over 2 hours in the waiting room, in agonising pain). Anyway… another application of zovirax eye ointment goes into my left eye (such a pain in the ass to apply), and a dose of pain killers. I want some sleep ….

I have to stay off work for a week minimum. I have to stay house-bound, drowning myself in eye ointment and tablets. I'm NOT happy :'(

Oh, and I'm rather reluctant to posting a photo of my eye on here, just in case I horribly disturb anyone reading my blog.
