Clinical symptoms of Pinkeye
Conjunctivitis is also known as pinkeye which is an inflammation of the conjunctiva. The conjunctiva is the thin clear tissue that lies over the white part of the eye and lines the inside of the eyelid. Children get it a lot and is highly contagious (it spreads rapidly in schools and day cares), but it’s rarely serious. It doesn’t damage your vision, especially if you find it and treat it quickly.
Conjunctivitis sometimes results from a sexually transmitted disease (STD ). Gonorrhea can bring on a rare but dangerous form of bacterial conjunctivitis. It can lead to vision loss if you don’t treat it. Chlamydia can cause conjunctivitis in adults. If a woman has chlamydia, gonorrhea, or other bacteria in her body when giving birth, she can pass pinkeye to her baby through the birth canal.
Pinkeye caused by some bacteria and viruses can spread easily from person to person, but it isn’t a serious health risk if diagnosed promptly.
Types of Pinkeye:
Viral strains are the most common and may be the most contagious forms. They tend to start in one eye, where they cause lots of tears and a watery discharge. Within a few days, the other eye gets involved. You might feel a swollen lymph node in front of ear or under jawbone.
Bacterial strains usually infect one eye but can show up in both. Your eye will put out a lot of pus and mucus.
Allergic types produce tearing, itching, and redness in both eyes. You might also have an itchy, runny nose.
Ophthalmia neonatorum is a severe form that affects newborns. It can be caused by dangerous bacteria.
Symptoms of Pinkeye:
They depend on the cause of the inflammation, but may include:
- Redness in the white of the eye or inner eyelid
- Swollen conjunctiva
- More tears than usual
- Thick yellow discharge that crusts over the eyelashes, especially after sleep. It can make your eyelids stick shut when you wake up.
- Green or white discharge from the eye
- Itchy eyes
- Burning eyes
- Blurred vision
- More sensitive to light
- Swollen lymph nodes (often from a viral infection)
