My eye is red and swollen underneath by the bottom eyelashes?
Question Posted Monday June 18 2012, 12:02 am
So this weekend I went swimming at a indoor pool with a friend and when I got home the next night my eye started to hurt at the bottom whenever I blinked. This morning I woke up and it was red and swollen underneath... Any ideas what it is? How did this happen? How do I fix it? HELP!

I suggest going to the pharamcy and asking your pharmacist for eye drops/cream if it doesn't clear up you should see an optometerist or regular doctor as you may need prescription medicine for a possible infection.
