Hydroxychloroquine Sulphate How does it work? Hydroxychloroquinine is used in the treatment of some auto-immune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus. In these diseases the body's immune system is over-active and slightly defective. The body develops antibodies which attack and cause damage to its own cells. Damage can occur anywhere in the body, such as in the joints or cartilage as in the case of rheumatoid arthritis. As a result of the damage to the joints, reduced mobility and stiffness in the affected joints is experienced. Hydroxychloroquine is thought to act by interfering with the production and release of blood cells that are involved in the body's immune defence system. Hence the autoimmune response of the antibodies against its own body, is reduced and as result the amount of damage to the cells is minimized and prevented. As it has the potential to prevent progression of the disease, by limiting the damage caused, it is often referred to as a disease-modifying antirheumatic drug (DMARDS) and is commonly used very early in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. Hydroxychloroquine is also used in treating skin conditions that are caused or aggravated by sunlight. What is it used for? # Inflammatory disease of the joints # Long-term inflammation of skin and some internal organs (systemic lupus erythematosus) or related diseases e.g. scleroderma # Severe inflammatory diease of the joint that commonly occurs in children and adolescents (juvenile arthritis) # Skin damaged by the sun # Skin disorders caused or made worse by sunlight Warning! # This medication may cause a blurring of vision. If affected do not drive or operate machinery. # People taking this medicine should have regular blood tests to check the levels of their blood components. # It is recommended that eye examinations are carried out before starting treatment with this medicine and repeated every six months in the course of the treatment. This medicine should be discontinued if any visual problems develop. Use with caution in # Disease affecting the brain and nervous system (neurological disease) # Gastro-intestinal conditions # Individuals taking medicines that may cause skin reactions or impair vision # Kidney disease # Lack of the chemical G6PD in the blood (G6PD deficiency) # Life long inherited blood diseases which can cause a variety of symptoms, including mental health problems (porphyrias) # Liver disease # Psoriasis # Severe blood disorders Not to be used in # Allergy to quinine # Pre-existing abnormality of the eye (eye maculopathy) # Pregnancy This medicine should not be used if you are allergic to one or any of its ingredients. Please inform your doctor or pharmacist if you have previously experienced such an allergy. If you feel you have experienced an allergic reaction, stop using this medicine and inform your doctor or pharmacist immediately. Pregnancy and Breastfeeding Certain medicines should not be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding. However, other medicines may be safely used in pregnancy or breastfeeding providing the benefits to the mother outweigh the risks to the unborn baby.

Hi Pinklayd Here are some answers and ideas to heal your condition. Causes of Conjunctivitis The primary causes of conjunctivitis are allergies, infection, poor diet, nutritional deficiencies, and stress. The use of pharmaceutical drugs can also cause conjunctivitis, as well as other types of vision problems. These include antihistamines, diuretics, oral contraceptives, steroids, chlorpromazine, digoxin, ethambutol, gold (used to treat arthritis and lupus), haloperidol, hydroxychloroquine sulfate, and tetracycline. ------------------------------... Natural Cures Ayurveda: According to Ayurvedic theory, most vision problems are due to digestive disorders. Attention is given to regular eye exercises, as well as the use of the herbs amla, licorice, and triphala, and a diet rich in organic, whole food with abundant quantities of antioxidant rich vegetables such as carrots and spinach. Diet: Emphasize a diet of organic, whole foods, with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Antioxidant vegetables include bell peppers, carrots, celery, parsley, spinach, tomatoes, yellow squash, and dark-green leafy vegetables, such as chard, collards and kale. Fruit high in anti-oxidants include berries, especially the dark rich colored berries, purple and red grapes, plums, cherries, mangos, melons and citrus fruit. Organic egg yolks are also recommended because they are rich in carotenoids, an important class of antioxidants. It is best to eat soft, rather than hard cooked egg yolks to preserve the heat sensitive valuable carotenoids. Soft boiled, poached, sunny side up, or raw eggs are best. Raw eggs may be eaten if they come from a reliable organic source and are washed prior to cracking. Samonella travels on the shell of the egg and enters the egg from the outside, so washing eggs with hot sudsy water minimizes exposure. Avoid all processed and fried foods, sugar and sugar products, refined, simple carbohydrates, alcohol, and unhealthy hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils. Milk and dairy products should be consumed sparingly, and preferably raw and organic. Avoid conventional flesh foods and overcooked/grilled meats. In addition, test for food allergies and sensitivities and eliminate those foods that test positive. Also be sure to drink plenty of pure, filtered water throughout the day, at least half your body weight in ounces, to help flush out accumulated debris in the eye drainage channels. Proper hydration is also essential for maintaining the suppleness of the eyes` lenses. Fresh raw green juices are also an important addition to one`s daily food plan. See the recipe section for green juice suggestions. Eye Exercises: The following eye exercises are useful for preventing and reversing most types of vision problems. Juice Therapy: Drink 16 ounces of carrot juice and/or carrot juice combined with fresh squeezed celery, cucumber, parsley, and spinach in two divided doses (eight ounces per serving) each day. Nutritional Supplementation: Useful nutrients include vitamin A, vitamin B complex, vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, flavonoids, lutein, N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC), riboflavin, selenium, taurine, zeaxthanin, and zinc. Lifestyle: Avoid rubbing your eyes with your hands and fingertips, especially if your hands are unwashed. Frequent eye rubbing can cause the conjunctiva to become irritated and inflamed, and can also expose your eyes to harmful infectious agents such as bacteria and viruses. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM): According to TCM theory, most vision problems are due to diminished liver function. To restore healthy liver function, TCM practitioners combine Acupuncture with dietary changes and traditional Chinese herbs, such as ginkgo biloba and ginseng. Alternative Professional Care The following professional care therapies have all been shown to be useful for preventing and treating cataracts: Detoxification Therapy, Environmental Medicine, Magnetic Therapy, and Naturopathic Medicine Best of health to you Answered by Carrol Ellingwood 1 month ago.

Conjunctivitis is where your eyes feel gritty and sometimes they stick together and usually ooze yellow pus. It is caught from towels or anything really that you come into contact with that someone has touched who has the condition. Luckily it is fairly easy to treat and I imagine your doctor has given you some chloramphenical to help clear it up? It will go in a couple of days time, just ensure you use your own towel etc for the next few days so that the whole household do not catch it. :) Answered by Lori Munz 1 month ago.

did you go to the doctor? conjuctivitis needs an antibiotic to cure it.. please read the following: Conjunctivitis is inflammation or infection of the membrane lining the eyelids (conjunctiva). Causes, incidence, and risk factors The conjunctiva is exposed to bacteria and other irritants. Tears help protect the conjunctiva by diluting bacteria and washing it away. Tears also contain enzymes and antibodies which kill bacteria. There are many causes of conjunctivitis. Viruses are the most common cause. Other causes include bacteria, Chlamydia, fungus, and rarely, parasitic agents. “Pink eye” refers to a viral infection of the conjunctiva. These infections are especially contagious among children. Handwashing is key to preventing the spread of the virus, which is similar to the type which cause the common cold. Bacteria are an uncommon cause of conjunctivitis. Many physicians give a mild antibiotic eyedrop for pink eye to prevent bacterial conjunctivitis. Conjunctivitis is also caused by allergies (allergic conjunctivitis), chemical exposure, and certain systemic diseases. also: Keratoconjunctivitis sicca Viral conjunctivitis Allergic conjunctivitis Vernal conjunctivitis Trachoma Neonatal conjunctivitis Symptoms Increased tearing Eye pain Redness in the eyes Gritty feeling in the eyes Itching of the eye Blurred vision Sensitivity to light Crusts that form on the eyelid overnight Signs and tests Examination of eyes Swab of conjunctiva for analysis Treatment Treatment of conjunctivitis depends upon the cause. Allergic conjunctivitis may respond to treatment for underlying allergies, or it may disappear on its own when the allergen that caused it is removed. Cool compresses may be soothing for allergic conjunctivitis. Antibiotic medication, usually eye drops, is effective for bacterial conjunctivitis. Viral conjunctivitis will disappear on its own. The discomfort with viral or bacterial conjunctivitis can be soothed by applying warm compresses (a clean cloth soaked in warm water) to closed eyes. Expectations (prognosis) The outcome is usually good with treatment. Complications Reinfection within a household or school may occur if preventive measures are not followed. Calling your health care provider Call for an appointment with your health care provider if symptoms persist longer than 3 or 4 days. Prevention Good hygiene can help prevent the spread of conjunctivitis: Keep hands away from the eye. Wash the hands frequently. Change pillowcases frequently. Replace eye cosmetics regularly. Do not share eye cosmetics. Do not share towels or handkerchiefs. Handle and clean contact lenses properly. Answered by Wilburn Bernucho 1 month ago.

It is very, very contagious. You can use a Q-tip at the edge of your eye nearest the nose to take the goo out...but..use a different one on each eye so you don't touch it with the other infection. Get rid of all of your eye make-up...it is infected too. Wash and dry all towels and wash clothes eachtime you use them, so you do no re-infect your eyes or give it to someone else. Keep using your med, it takes awhile. Answered by Jerilyn Hetsler 1 month ago.

It depends WHAT type of Conjunctivitis (pink eye)you have. Basically,there are three types...viral, allergic, and bacterial and each requires different treatment.The viral type is often associated with an upper respiratory tract infection, cold, or sore throat. The allergic type occurs more frequently among those with allergic conditions. When related to allergies, the symptoms are often seasonal. Allergic conjunctivitis may also be caused by intolerance to substances such as cosmetics, perfume, or drugs. Bacterial conjunctivitis is often caused by bacteria such as staphylococcus and streptococcus. The severity of the infection depends on the type of bacteria involved. Viral and bacterial conjuctivitis is highly contagious. Go to your Dr. for antibiotics etc. Use a damp cloth to wipe any tears or discharge from your eyes. If you touch any of the discharge (tears,mucous) wash your hands with hot water and an anti-bacterial soap. To avoid spreading infection, take these simple steps: · Disinfect surfaces such as doorknobs and counters with diluted bleach solution Don’t swim (some bacteria can be spread in the water) Avoid touching the face Wash hands frequently Don’t share towels or washcloths Do not reuse handkerchiefs (using a tissue is best) Avoid shaking hands Hope this helps.

You need to go to the dr. to get opthalmic antibiotics. They're very cheap, even if you don't have insurance. Even though there are "natural" things you can get to treat conjunctivitis, it's highly recommended that you see a dr. to get specific medications for your eye. Pink eye is HIGHLY contagious.

There are two types of pink eye~viral and bacterial. The viral will resolve on its own, but the bacterial requires an antibiotic. Only your doctor can differentiate between the two, so you'll need to make an appointment as soon as possible. Until then, put warm, wet compresses on your eyes. You could also try eye drops to relieve the pain, but be sure to see your doctor about this. And keep in mind that pink eye is contagious, so get it taken care of as soon as possible. Answered by Yong Calicott 1 month ago.

Go to the docter and get some eye drops. You can get rid of the red by using Visine, but the pink eye you have is a virus and will not be gone by using just Visine. The drops from the doctor help you get over the virus faster. Answered by Marjory Torsiello 1 month ago.

You need an antibiotic to clear it up. It is highly contagious, as well, so you need to avoid people until you've been on the antibiotic for at least 24 hours. **EDIT** Also, depending on what type of conjunctivitis it is, it could have a lasting effect on your eye, causing sight problems, so DO get it checked by a doc! Answered by Miriam Chicalace 1 month ago.

Go and see an optomotrist or ophtamologist, you will need prescription eyedrops, when I was younger I never treated it and it went away on its own but it left me with a slightly lazy eye. Also when it is all crusty just use a warm wet towl to wipe the crust away and it should help. Answered by Sandi Satre 1 month ago.

Hi Stardust Here are some answers and ideas to heal your condition. Causes of Conjunctivitis The primary causes of conjunctivitis are allergies, infection, poor diet, nutritional deficiencies, and stress. The use of pharmaceutical drugs can also cause conjunctivitis, as well as other types of vision problems. These include antihistamines, diuretics, oral contraceptives, steroids, chlorpromazine, digoxin, ethambutol, gold (used to treat arthritis and lupus), haloperidol, hydroxychloroquine sulfate, and tetracycline. --------------------------------------... Natural Cures Ayurveda: According to Ayurvedic theory, most vision problems are due to digestive disorders. Attention is given to regular eye exercises, as well as the use of the herbs amla, licorice, and triphala, and a diet rich in organic, whole food with abundant quantities of antioxidant rich vegetables such as carrots and spinach. Diet: Emphasize a diet of organic, whole foods, with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Antioxidant vegetables include bell peppers, carrots, celery, parsley, spinach, tomatoes, yellow squash, and dark-green leafy vegetables, such as chard, collards and kale. Fruit high in anti-oxidants include berries, especially the dark rich colored berries, purple and red grapes, plums, cherries, mangos, melons and citrus fruit. Organic egg yolks are also recommended because they are rich in carotenoids, an important class of antioxidants. It is best to eat soft, rather than hard cooked egg yolks to preserve the heat sensitive valuable carotenoids. Soft boiled, poached, sunny side up, or raw eggs are best. Raw eggs may be eaten if they come from a reliable organic source and are washed prior to cracking. Samonella travels on the shell of the egg and enters the egg from the outside, so washing eggs with hot sudsy water minimizes exposure. Avoid all processed and fried foods, sugar and sugar products, refined, simple carbohydrates, alcohol, and unhealthy hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils. Milk and dairy products should be consumed sparingly, and preferably raw and organic. Avoid conventional flesh foods and overcooked/grilled meats. In addition, test for food allergies and sensitivities and eliminate those foods that test positive. Also be sure to drink plenty of pure, filtered water throughout the day, at least half your body weight in ounces, to help flush out accumulated debris in the eye drainage channels. Proper hydration is also essential for maintaining the suppleness of the eyes` lenses. Fresh raw green juices are also an important addition to one`s daily food plan. See the recipe section for green juice suggestions. Eye Exercises: The following eye exercises are useful for preventing and reversing most types of vision problems. Juice Therapy: Drink 16 ounces of carrot juice and/or carrot juice combined with fresh squeezed celery, cucumber, parsley, and spinach in two divided doses (eight ounces per serving) each day. Nutritional Supplementation: Useful nutrients include vitamin A, vitamin B complex, vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, flavonoids, lutein, N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC), riboflavin, selenium, taurine, zeaxthanin, and zinc. Lifestyle: Avoid rubbing your eyes with your hands and fingertips, especially if your hands are unwashed. Frequent eye rubbing can cause the conjunctiva to become irritated and inflamed, and can also expose your eyes to harmful infectious agents such as bacteria and viruses. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM): According to TCM theory, most vision problems are due to diminished liver function. To restore healthy liver function, TCM practitioners combine Acupuncture with dietary changes and traditional Chinese herbs, such as ginkgo biloba and ginseng.

Pink eye is a bacterial infection that is spread easily. Even though none of your patients had it. It is a bacteria that comes from surfaces. It is very important that you wash your hands frequently and not rub your eyes as that is how you likely got it in the first place. Your drops will have you cleared up in the next few days and I am sure you will feel better. Answered by Slyvia Fogus 1 month ago.

It could also be from the make-up that you wear. Over time, mascara and eye shadow get bacteria from always coming in contact with your eyes, then it builds up, then you get an eye infection. I always end up throwing mine away after a couple of months and buying new. If you dont wear make-up, then its probably pink eye. Go see your dr. Ask about the make-up. Good Luck.

I had pink eye once, I went to the doctor and got some eye drops prescribed and after using it my pink eye went away. Answered by Chin Valenzano 1 month ago.

Go see your doctor or eye doctor. ASAP! Also don't touch them and touch anything else without washing your hands. Pink Eye is VERY, VERY contagious. After you go to the doctor and get meds., make sure that you wash anything that your face has touched since you came down with it. Bed sheets, pillowcase, wash cloth and towel. Spray your couch, car headrest with something that is antibacterial/antimicrobial. That will kill any type of bacteria that is on anything that you've touched and will keep from you or someone that you've come in contact with from getting it. Answered by Ester Hurtt 1 month ago.

The only time I had pinkeye, I got it at the eye doctor's office!! If one of the patients had the germs on their hand and you touched something they did, and then your eye, that's how you got it. I got it from a piece of medical equipment that wasn't sterilized! When I went back to the doctor's office, it was the worst case of pinkeye they had ever seen! I said, "Oh, well that's funny, because I got it HERE!" Funny, when it was time to leave, the doctor just walked me right past the place where you pay.... I was on antiviral drops for I think a week. It was tough not fooling with it because I hate having my eyes itchy and running! Answered by Pablo Mckillop 1 month ago.

Pink eye usually makes your eyes really red, itches like crazy, and when you wake up in the morning, your eyes are all crusted over, sometimes so bad you can't hardly open them. It's called "conjunctivitis". Answered by Latasha Ken 1 month ago.

See the recipe section for green juice suggestions. Eye Exercises: The following eye exercises are useful for preventing and reversing most types of vision problems. Rest your eyes for five minutes every 30 to 60 minutes, relaxing your gaze and staring into space. Blink your eyes regularly. This reduces eyestrain. Take regular breaks throughout the day to breathe deeply for a few minutes, coupled with neck and shoulder stretching. This helps to ensure that your eye muscles receive adequate amounts of oxygen. To further reduce facial tension, yawn in an exaggerated fashion. Doing so helps to stretch and relax your facial muscles. Cover your eyes with you palms for five minutes and breathe deeply. Do this every one to two hours. Spend 20 to 30 minutes each day rapidly switching your focus from near to far. An easy way to do this is to hold your finger six to eight inches from your eyes. Focus on it for a moment, then focus on an object in the distance. Keep changing your focus from near to far. This is an excellent way to exercise your eye muscles. Roll your eyes all the way up and down in a full circular motion for five minutes, three to five times a day. Pin a sheet of reading material to the wall and read it from two feet away (or closer if you need to). Each day, step further away from the wall. With regular practice, you will eventually be able to read the same material from across the room. If you are nearsighted, reverse this process, starting as far away from the sheet of paper as you need to be, then slowly moving closer each day until you are able to read it standing only a few inches away. Juice Therapy: Drink 16 ounces of carrot juice and/or carrot juice combined with fresh squeezed celery, cucumber, parsley, and spinach in two divided doses (eight ounces per serving) each day.

The only cure for pinkeye is an opthalmic antibiotic prescribed my an MD. Pleas do not put polysporin in you childs eye. It is not pH balanced to your body and will sting like nothing youve ever felt. Be careful about washing your hands. Pinkeye(conjuctivitis) is very contagious. Answered by Gilma Dimond 1 month ago.

Most cases of pink eye (conjunctivitis) is caused by a virus so just putting some soothing eye drop like Visine would be fine. That is what they taught us in my Residency. I alway Rx an antibiotic drop when I see a patient because I wouldn't want them to have to make another trip to the doctor if it wasn't viral. The Rx antibiotics are specially formulated for the eye (mainly sterile so as not to cause an infection). Use the OTC Neosporin at your own risk, though low. Answered by Raleigh Kippel 1 month ago.

When my kids were little and had frequent pink eye the doctor said to use polysporin (triple antibiotic ointment). Put some in the eye at bedtime and by morning it will clear up. It worked every time. Read the article linked below to confirm that it works. It is an antibiotic and is no different than what the doctor will prescribe if it's standard pink eye. If it doesn't clear up in a day, take your child to a pediatrician. Answered by Myrtle Muccigrosso 1 month ago.

My mom always used the eye ointment they send home with new babies. I don't know if they still do that but it's just an eye antibiotic called silver something or other(sorry can't remember actual name). My daughter gets a pink eye often. looks just like "pink eye" except Doc says its actually her allergies. If you err on side of cation best to go in to doc or clinic (if it's quicker/cheaper). If you feel like waiting it out (which is what I would do no need to put antibiotics in your eye if you don't have to.) wash often, ice down, and get OTC flushing type drops. See if it clears in a day or two.(I've found most of my families(brother sisters children ect..) clear with in 3 days or less). Answered by Mohammad Vandehey 1 month ago.

Yes, go to the doctor - there are no home remedies. Pink eye is an infection, and cannot be treated without an antibiotic. It is also very contagious - so if you do not go to the doctor to get it cleared up - you are going to pass it around to your family as well as those you go to school with. Answered by Debbi Pacho 1 month ago.

Depending on the cause, the doctor might be able to prescribe something to alleviate the symptoms and reduce the time it will take for it to go away. Try a cold compress. Answered by Ami Defrang 1 month ago.

yeah..the doctor can prescribe you with an opthalmic ointent or drops to fasten your healing. Answered by Loris Keach 1 month ago.

yes. youre going to need to go to the doctor and theyll subscribe you to eye drops. dont touch your eye... and wash your hands a lot. pink eye is contagious. and even ifyou touch your eye and touch a door knob. someone else could touch the doorknob, then their eye and catch it too. not fun.
