Along with chamomile, sage compresses are the most common home remedy people resort to for eye infections. Although these teas are very healthy and help with various health problems, we checked whether sage and chamomile are really good for eye infections because, given the importance of the eye, how we treat them is very important.
The human eye is protected from the outside by eyelids that blink the eye and protect it from external influences while walking. Red, inflamed, warm, and sore eyelids are usually a sign of their infection. The most common cause is barley, which is caused by a blockage of the sebum glands of the sebum glands (meibomian glands). It can be recognized by its reddish painful swelling, mostly towards the edge of the eyelid, and its yellow or white tip can also be recognized. A tingling sensation and a foreign body in the eye may also occur.
The first aid we can do at home is to use warm dry compresses so that the gauze is heated on a hair dryer or iron and placed warm on the eyelid so that the heat opens the pores. As the area warms up, it’s important to massage in circular motions to allow the trapped secretion to escape.
If after a few days there is no improvement or the condition worsens, it is necessary to see a doctor to prescribe drug therapy.
Most often, when the eye turns red, it’s conjunctivitis, which is inflammation of the conjunctiva of the eye caused by viruses, bacteria, or allergens. Symptoms of conjunctivitis include red, irritated eyes with sand in the eye, tears in the eye, the appearance of secretions, and sensitivity to light may occur.The appearance of secretions indicates a possible cause. Viral and allergic conjunctivitis go with a transparent and elastic secretion, and allergic conjunctivitis also accompanies the itching, while bacterial conjunctivitis is characterized by a yellowish or greenish secretion.
When conjunctivitis occurs, it is necessary to contact a doctor to find the cause and prescribe therapy. When we mention eye infections from acquaintances, we often hear that sage or chamomile compresses are good, but such therapy is not effective and, unfortunately, can go away.
Using tea compresses can be useful for non-inflammatory conditions such as dark circles under the eyes.For example, cold bags of black or green tea are used, which are high in caffeine and antioxidant properties and can help reduce dark circles. It is important to use proven organic teas when using them and to pay attention to hygiene when using them
