Sorry if this topic has already been posted. I've searched for the topic "sore eyes" using the search forum but there are no matches. So anyway, here's my question.
I currently have sore eyes, my first time to have one. I got it from my brother who got infected by his classmate during a camping trip. Now we went to the doctor and he prescribed us Chloramphenicol drops. Well, it's been two days now and there seems to be no effect at all. I talked with my female nurse friend and she said that Maxitrol is a better drug. I read the literature and one of the cautions says that it may cause glaucoma and other side effects. can we use Maxitrol? Or what drug is effective for us? How communicable is this disease? How long does it usually last? Thank you doc Ira1!
