He's an 18 mth old healthy little cat, but he's been partially closing his left eye the last day or so, and it it's watery. It was obviously bothering him last night, but this morning it was fine so I didn't take him to the vets. There is a tiny discharge in the corner but the eye looks fine otherwise. Could he has scratched the eyeball on grass or a twig etc? I will definitely take him to the vet, but being disabled and with no transport it's not so easy for me. I've got some opticrom anti allergy eye drops for my hayfever, could they help? Answered by Twanna Satow 2 years ago.
I think there are two possibilities here - 1) that it is just an irritation (maybe scratched it, maybe allergies, etc) or 2) it is an eye infection in the early stages. If it is just an irritation, then there are things you can do at home. When any of my babies (I foster many, many kittens when they are orphaned) have watery eyes, I take a cotton ball and soak it in warm saline rinse (you can find this at any store, it is for washing contact lenses). Then gently wipe his -closed- eye from front to side. This will make him feel a lot better and help with the watery-ness. I also had a kitten last year get scratched by his brother in the eye and it caused watery eye and squinting. It cleared up by that night on its own. However, if your cat's eye continues to stay closed for more than a day, or if there are any other symptoms like runny nose, yellow/green discharge from the eye, then it is time to take kitty to the vet. Conjunctivitis is quite common in young cats, and can be treated easily with some eye drops ($15-25ish). I would not suggest using the opticrom eye drops - cats eyes are very different from human eyes and those drops are likely too strong for him. Answered by Myrtice Berlinghof 2 years ago.

I have just started with hay fever again this year. I've had it for about 15 years, and any treatment I get from the doctor either doesn't work, or has bad side effects. I am different to most people, in that mine starts in February (Probably due to tree pollen) and ends in early June. I can lay in the grass in summer with no problems whatsoever. Does anyone know of any remedies please, which will stop my eyes from smarting, and also my nose from being blocked and running at the same time? At the moment, I use Rapitil eye drops. I tried Opticrom, which just made my eyes sting more. Last year my doctor prescribed an injection, which I collected from the chemist, but it had so many contra indications that I decided not to use it. I also use Beconase, a nasal spray, which works fine, but ends up with the inside of my nose drying out completely, and bleeding. Any ideas please? Answered by Soraya Eatman 2 years ago.
Definitive treatment consists of going to an allergist and getting the allergy desensitizing injections over time. Your allergies are specific to each season, and, when those are not as active, then you have the weeds and mold to react to. So you end up with year-round allergy symptoms. Sound familiar? Not taking the medicines the doctor has prescribed will only get you another bout with your allergy symptoms. After a time, over-the-counter medicines stop working. They will all stop working. Then you are forced to go to a doctor for some substantial help. How much do you want to suffer? Answered by Alyse Stonelake 2 years ago.
apparently in case you consume a teaspoon of close by honey (ought to be out of your close by area because it is going to likely be created from an identical pollen that's placing off your hypersensitive reaction) as quickly as an afternoon interior the few months previous and with the aid of your hayfever season, you will advance immunity to close by pollens, which might help at the same time with your hayfever. yet another organic medical care which i exploit (which i discover works fantastically plenty for me) is New era mixture H tissue salts. this would nicely be a homoeopathic medical care, and is derived as small pills which you will take in the time of the day to help ease the indicators. good success, i recognize from adventure that hayfever would nicely be a terrible draw back to spring and summer time.

The following works for sinus, cold, running nose, sore throat and strep throat, when the throat is hurting and lot of other conditions. The most visible thing about sinus is swelling. In case of cold, sore throat, strep throat also swelling is there but to some less extent then it is visible in sinus. Sinus, cold and sore throat usually happen in the following situations - - Change of season, drinking lot of water after exercises, when u get up in the morning, after swimming, after having first sex, kissing, first time smoking etc. The reason - The body has limited capacity to store water in places other hen cells and in blood systems. When we suddenly drink lot of water, that must be stored in the cells within a short period. If that does not happen the body tries to lose water through frequent urination, running nose, cough etc. This excess water is stored in layers of skin or muscles. This stored water outside cells reduces the cell metabolism drastically. That also causes the immune system to be done causing the bacteria growth. That does not need antibiotics. All it needs is reabsorption of that water in cells or blood system. That is possible only by reducing the water intake temporarily. During winters the cells of our body stores less water. This is evident from frequent loss of water from body throuhurination. Normally. Another thing that needs explanation is - why does sore throat happens in the morning often. The cellular metabolism is at 5 to 10% during sleep. So the excess water stored between layers of skin and muscles causes the metabolism to fall below the minimum threshold limit. That reduces the immune capacity of the body drastically. The same thing happens after swimming the body is heated up and cooled at the same time. It a person allows sweating after a swimming session and does not drink water or does not take a shower in cold water sore throat may not happen. After having first sex, kissing, first time smoking people tend to either overeat, drink lot of water and sleep immediately so sinus or sore throat happens. The easier way out is to allow body to sweat for 1 or 2 hour by increasing the body temperature but not drinking water or other fluids for may be 1 hour after that. But since cell metabolism is low during this period of cold and sinus, a person will seem to be excessively thirsty even after a short session of small exercise. Thru cell metabolism the water is transferred to blood system. If that happens at a rate slower then required rate the cells may overheat causing excessive thirst. The other easy way to control swelling is to give up water and all other liquids for 24 hours. In 24 hours there will be no significant dehydration to cause organ failure. But to be double sure one can stay indoors for 24 hours. This helps in lot of other ailments. One can do it when one is indoors. It improves the immune system. It ensures that body's control systems work properly. In 24 hours the reduction in the fluids will be about 3 litres or about 5% of the total body weight of a normal adult. Never the swelling due to sinus or cold and cough is more than 5% of the body volume. During this period of 24 hours the lose of water from the body does not reduce even by 1% to offset reduced water intake. The reduction in loss of body water thru urine or sweating starts after 48 hours in most of people. But to be on safe side giving up water and liquids for 24 hours will do the trick. The reduced swelling will give immediate relief from pain. It will make is much more easier to eliminate the cough thru nose without any pain. That will also improve the blood acid levels by about 10%. This makes changes at the cell level as well. Blood acid levels are the first line of defense against the infections. So swelling gone, pain gone, cough moving out, infections taken care of. Now what remains in the body for the next change of season time. Obviously nothing. So it has already given u long term relief from sinus. But in some cases one may get sinus during next change of season and may have to do this again. The benefits of drinking lot of water is over hyped. So when winter starts to set in, people still force drink more water. Same thing happens when summer is setting in. As soon as summer comfort is there on increases the water intake drastically. But the cells of the body still does not need that excess supply of water. Answered by Shandra Marling 2 years ago.
