Symptoms of pinkeye

Typical symptoms: 1. Severe pain, photophobia, tears and other severe irritation symptoms and watery secretions; 2. Redness and swelling of eyelids, high congestion and edema of conjunctiva, subconjunctival point, flaky or extensive bleeding; 3. Corneal diffuse punctate epithelium shedding and fluorescein staining; 4. Pre-auricular or submandibular lymph nodes are enlarged.

Related symptoms: red eyes, ciliary congestion, tears, red eyes and pain

I. Symptoms:

1. Severe pain, photophobia, tears and other severe irritation symptoms and watery secretions;

2. Redness and swelling of eyelids, high congestion and edema of conjunctiva, subconjunctival point, flaky or extensive bleeding;

3. Corneal diffuse punctate epithelium shedding and fluorescein staining;

4. Pre-auricular or submandibular lymph nodes are enlarged.

Second, physical signs:

During examination, eyelid swelling can be seen, and conjunctiva can see that upper and lower eyelids are connected by secretion. Conjunctival congestion is bright red, with eyelid and fornix conjunctiva being the most significant. Serious conjunctival surface can be covered with a layer of pseudomembrane that is easy to rub off, so it is also called pseudomembranous conjunctivitis; The bulbar conjunctiva was congested and edema in different degrees, and lost its transparency. Cornea and conjunctiva surface, eyelid margin and other parts are covered with mucous or purulent secretion. If it is kochweeks bacillus or pneumococcus infection, there may be high conjunctival congestion and edema accompanied by sporadic patchy hemorrhage. Corneal complications are mainly caused by kochweeks bacillus, showing catarrhal corneal marginal infiltration or ulcer. The lesions begin with superficial punctate corneal infiltration located inside the limbus, and then the infiltration fuses with each other to form arcuate superficial ulcer. Clouds can be left after recovery.

III. Diagnostic criteria:

1. Outbreak and strong infectivity.

2. Severe pain, photophobia, tears and other severe irritation symptoms and watery secretions.

3. Conjunctiva is highly congested and edematous, and subconjunctival hemorrhage occurs.

4. Corneal diffuse punctate epithelial shedding.

5. Pre-auricular or submandibular lymph nodes are enlarged.

6. Paralysis of lower limbs occurred after conjunctivitis subsided in some cases.

Including bacterial conjunctivitis, viral conjunctivitis and chlamydia conjunctivitis.

2. Non-infectious conjunctivitis

Mainly allergic conjunctivitis and chemical injury conjunctivitis.
