The best and easiest way to wash your closed eyes (really the lash lines) is to put a few drops on your fingers and for 10-15 seconds use gentle circular lathering motion. Rinse well with water. No Q-tips needed, do it twice a day. My ENT doctor also told me his patients use baby shampoo to wash out nostrils following surgery. There must be a biofilm of some kind that is at the heart of the dry eye phenomenon. I am not an MD - so try this washing for yourself and see - and if still no relief at all, seek advice from your physician. I remain restasis-need-free. This medication is VERY expensive both to patients and insurance companies. #simplesolutionsaregreat
Systemic corticosteroids can reactivate tuberculosis and should not be used in patients with a history of active tuberculosis, except when chemoprophylaxis is instituted concomitantly. The incidence or course of acute bacterial infection are probably minimally affected by inhaled triamcinolone. Application of topical corticosteroids to areas of infection, including tuberculosis of the skin, should be initiated or continued only if the appropriate antiinfective treatment is instituted. If the infection does not respond to the antimicrobial therapy, the concurrent use of the topical corticosteroid should be discontinued until the infection is controlled.
