Question for Betty.
 

For the past few days, my left eye has been red, irritated and has been discharging more than normal.  What do you recommend?
 
Betty's Answer.
 


A red, irritated eye with discharge needs evaluation by a health care provider.  Common causes may be: a viral or bacterial infection, allergic conjunctivitis, a foreign body, an abrasion, or increased pressure to the eye.  If you have a contact in this eye, be sure to remove it until you are seen by your health care provider.
