Givin’ Me The Sti… Pink Eye

I’m at home. Why? I’m the monkey from Outbreak. I’m extremely contagious with conjunctivitis. You got it. I have the dreaded Pink Eye. On top of my itchy painful eyes, I have a sinus infection! My doctor said not to go back to work until it’s cleared up, which means I could be here the rest of the week, on the couch, over a modem, small gooky tears rolling down my face as I stumble along trying to do work without all my normal tools.

  1. Drink lots of fluids! Conjuctivitis can spread to your brain if it’s really bad (scary factoid for the day)

  2. That’s GREAT to know. Thanks for sharing… Ouch. Thank goodness I have industrial strength antibiotics and a TiVo.

  3. How can I get rid of a sti on my lower eye lid..I think it may be turning into a sinus infection too..what can I use to get rid of this..thanks.???

  4. you have to keep lots of hot things on it and turn it inside out and put hot water in it you have to poke it with a clean neatel however visit my web site htpp://looeye/stie good luck oh and put numming cream on you stiy

  5. I have A Bump On my Eye and everyone says its a sti ,it gets big and small, im just wondering what i need to do to get rid of it, or do i need to go to the doc’s

  6. You’ll be happy to know Kevin, I Googled about Sti’s because I have one, and your blog came up number two in search results. I guess you are now an authoritative medical source. 🙂

  7. My eyelid doesnt open all the way, it’s swellen. When i blink it kinda hurts, when i press on the side of it, it feels like i bumped it on something because it just feels like i have like a brous. My dad told me that it might be a stei. And my mom said that i should put ice on it to get rid of the swelling. But what should i do to get rid of it in a pretty short amount of time?
