When I woke up this morning, I saw that there was a development with my infected eyelid. The swollen part of the eyelid had become, for a lack of a better term, ripe for popping. I could see a visible amount of pus just underneath the skin. It looked like a giant pimple ready to explode. Everyone enjoys details like that right? I was really tempted to lance the thing and drain it but I stopped myself for two reasons: first, all the medical advice I read about my condition specifically warned me again popping the infected area because it might spread the bacteria, and second, I needed to go to work and I had no idea how messing lancing this thing would be.
Well, it turned out the whole thing was out of my control anyways! At work, my eye was getting itch and in the process of just gently rubbing the area, the thing popped with the slightest provocation. I felt a bit of wetness on the eyelid so I grabbed a tissue to dab at my eye. I saw a tiny bit of pus. I though there would be a lot more. I went to the bathroom to take a look and it wasn’t that bad. Based on how swollen the area was, I was anticipating a large amount of pus, followed by an equally large amount of blood. I’ve popped some pimples before where it seems like it just won’t stop bleeding for whatever reason. Luckily, I wasn’t sitting at my desk with blood pouring from an eye.
Hopefully, this is another sign things are getting better as usually most infected things start healing quicker after you drain the area of all that badness. Thanks for letting me tell you about my infected eye.
