for several years I have been baffled as to
why the white of the eye is an "irritated red"
hue..in addition to the accompanying itching.
...after many types of eyewash..OTC and Rx...and
nothing really help all that much..
I took some samples/swabs of "whatever" was on the
..turns out that the surface of the eye was covered
in morg gel..the crap that the morg bacteria spin off
in large quantities to make the lesions with.
...every one of those tiny "beads" of gel is made by a
colony of bacteria. The beads of gel tend to accumulate
into particles of gel..the same gel particles that
cluster together to make the morgellon scabs.
The stuff tends to grow in a layer on the eye.
...and if I let it quietly sit on a slide..it will
start growing the white fibers. Oh this is just swell.
When the gels accumulate on skin..the skin dissolves into
a gooey crater. And it's collecting on the eye?
No wonder the eyes tend to sting..and go pink/red.
It appears that the constant "washdown" from the tear
ducts may be helping to prevent the usual "corrosive"
damage dealt out by the morg gel..but it's not quite
enough to reliably clear the slime from the eye...possibly
because the bacteria are adhering to the cornea.
I have found a little relief from the itching by using
an OTC [over the counter] antihistimine eye wash available
at Walmart..it's the "walmart house brand knockoff" of a
more expensive brand name eyewash. [Walmart "Equate" brand;
"eye allergy relief".
*Naphazoline HCl (0.02675%)
**Pheniramine maleate (0.315%)
...it does a pretty good job at reducing the itching and
redness...of course it don't "cure" squat..it just makes
the misery a bit less...miserable. And at ~$3 a bottle..it
is affordable too.
