This sounds so stupid like "Earache my eye" by Cheech and Tommy Chong, but indeed I have what is called a cold in my eye.
Asthmatics have the problem with there cold going into their lungs, and I too am an asthmatic and have resigned myself to having to spit (ew) on occasion to get rid of the phlegm. And I have also been diagnosed with super sensitive sinus which means I get it up the nose too and so I can't breath too well.
But this is the first time I had a cold in my eye!
My daughter had it a few years ago so I know what it is, and I'm treating it with eye washes and natural tears eye drops. and as bad as it looks today it was worse yesterday when I woke up and it was mattered together and had to pry it open. the bottom and top eye lids were even swollen and I could barely see out of it.
But the swell is down and I can use it just fine today, but it still looks like heck!
