Signs and Symptoms of Conjunctivitis in Humans
Signs and Symptoms of conjunctivitis initially only infect one eye, but usually after a few hours will infect both eyes. Conjunctivitis has the following common symptoms:
- Frequent tears and mucus because the glands that produce both become too active due to inflammation.
- The eyes become red because the small blood vessels in the conjunctiva widen after experiencing inflammation.
- The sensitivity to light increases.
In addition to the general symptoms above, kojungtivitis can also cause some other symptoms, according to the type.
There are some symptoms that usually occur when experiencing infective conjunctivitis, including:
- Enlarged lymph nodes in front of the ear.
- The eyes feel like burning.
- Eyelashes will feel sticky or sticky when you wake up in the morning.
- Eyes feels like sandy.
Conjunctivitis can occur due to allergies and cause itchy eyes. Symptoms such as runny or stuffy nose, and sneezing can also occur.
Eyelid will feel sore and become dry if you suffer from allergies to eye drops or commonly called contact dermaconjunctivitis.
In addition, there is also giant papillary conjunctivitis (GPC), which is allergic to the use of contact lenses. Symptoms that appear can be small spots inside the upper eyelid and develop slowly.
We should suspect irritant conjunctivitis if there is a history of exposure to irritants such as shampoo or other chemicals. The eye will usually emit clear liquid like a non sticky tear. Lower eye sockets are more likely to be attacked than the top.
Immediately see a doctor if you have giant papillary conjunctivitis because it can cause very dangerous complications.
Most cases of conjunctivitis are harmless and need not be worried. Even so, see your doctor immediately if you experience more severe eye symptoms such as:
- Vision is impaired.
- One or both eyes are deep red.
- Eyes hurt.
- Experiencing photophobia or sensitive to light.
- Dizzy nausea accompanied by nausea or vomiting.
