Patient discussion about periocular

Q. how long does an eye infection suppose to last if I don't usually have any eye problems? I'm not even sure how I got this infection- my eye was itchy a few days ago and after too much touching-I guess-it got real red and swollen. It hurt for like a day and now it just keeps the redness. something to be worried about? any eye professionals there? I don't use glasses or contacts so I'm kinda bad at this- never gave my eye any special attention...thanks!

A. go see an eye dr.a.s.a.p.,it could be anything,you could have something in your eye,you could have pink eye,you could have allergies,but dont risk the wait,go to the doctors...!!!!!!!!
