    Have you had an discharge from your vagina before? If not, then this sounds like the normal discharge women have every day after they go through puberty. Unless its different from the type of discharge you usually, get you sound completely fine, but try talking to your mum or school nurse if you're worried or need more advice :)

    For the last four years ive had a white gooey stringy substance coming out of my eyes and my eyes are always bloodshot and sometimes swollen. Ive been to a doctor about it and she said she didnt know what it was so she pretty much told me to go away. But recently the problem has been getting worse. I was on holiday and around the 7th day my eyes started producing this substance, and my eyes became extremly irratated. I tried to use my finger to remove the gooey from my eyes but when I got it out of one eye more would be in the other, my eyes became completely red and the pain was unbearable and I was crying. Then my friend told me that a girl had been on this show with similar symptoms, but I cant find anyrthing about it on here. Im really worried incase I really damage my eyes im quite scared. Im going to the doctors as soon as possible to see if they will help me, but does anyone else have any idea what it could be? Please help!

    Hi Im not sure if anyone has answered this but you should go to your gp and if they ignore you then go to another one because it may be nothing but at the same time it could be something. As there are many problems that can occur with one's eye's its best to follow it up. Not worth going blind now is it!

    I'm 14 (so I'm guessing its a bit of an unusual age to get very watery eyes) but my eyes water with the slightest of wind, sunlight, when I lie on my side and even when applying moisturiser or face make up. But I think there's something wrong with my eyes, the shape of them are perfectly normal but I seem to have just a pink/red gap between my actual eyeball and the outer edge of my eye, like the opposite side to my tear duct, could this be why my eyes are so watery, if so is there anything I can do about it?

    Hi!! I don't know you and I don't know what's wrong either but I'm fourteen and I have the exact same thing!! I don't know anyone else who has it and its killing me because there's nothing online about it. Your not alone, my eyes water like that too.

    I am also 14, and I have exactly the same problem, my eyes have been watering since about last year. my eyes water all the time in all conditions even inside, when I'm at school I usually just use tissue to wipe away the water but it gets so annoying and gets in the way. I've been to the doctors and they have me eye drops that didnt help at all, they said it was because I wear make up but they water even when I don't. I went to the opticians and he told me that I don't blink all the way, I was very surprised as I thought I did, and I think I still do now, I hope it's just a thing that will pass over time.

    I have always had watery eyes, I'm 17 now and still do.... They mainly water when; I look at other eyes, think about eyes, confrontation with people and just randomly sometimes :( Why???

    My daughter suffers from mild asthma, eczema and sometimes hay fever since the age of 3. Throughout the years she's had server allergic reactions ending with raise rashes all over her body, swollen face, eyes and weeping skins and each occasion will last for about a week. The allergic reactions/outbreak got worse at her teens and especially when we go on holiday. GP referred her to hospital couple of times but never received any allergy tests or patch tests. She is now 18 and we are still unsure whether she is allergic to certain food, dust, sun or heat? She is getting very frustrated and anxious about going anywhere or when it might flare up.

    Im 22 years old and have suffered with herpes symplex all of my life. I get it on my eyes, my lips, my nose and in my throat. It flares up every couple of weeks, with certain times it being more severe. Ive been to my GP countless times over the years, only really to be offered zovirax cream, which does not work. Iv also been to the walk in centre numerous times, where they have refered me to st pauls eye hospital, liverpool. Here, they have given me eye drops only, which have again never worked. I have asked my doctor to refer me to a specialist but so far this has never been done. At the moment, i can not open my right eye as its is on the outside and the inside of my eye.It is weeping at the moment and is extremely sore. Please help. Any advise on what to do would be much appriciated. Thankyou

    Insist on seeing an ophthalmologist. My husband suffered from herpes keratitis (herpes on/in the eye) for many years and has now had to have a corneal transplant as the herpes has badly scarred the cornea. He has always been extremely careful to get medical help immediately it flares up. Acyclovir is now available in tablet form and can prevent further viral attacks. If you do not seek treatment urgently, you are at risk of damage to the cornea or retina and this can result in partial sight or, in extreme cases, blindness.

    Hi, I recently had squint surgery done and I've noticed that my eye only looked straight on the day the surgery was done. Every time after that, especially after I've been on the computer for a while and straining my eyes, I notice my squint is still very obvious. But the doctor says she is quite happy with my alignment. Is it possible that somehow i am the only one who sees my eyes as being unaligned when I look in the mirror? I've also been taking pictures regularly and occasionally, my eyes look perfectly aligned and on other occasions,it looks horrible.Is it common for the eyes to drift back to its original position while its healing? Btw, It's almost a month since I had my surgery done.

    I have had this problem for two years now, snap ,as I have had eye drops after eye drops, seen doctors and specialists don't know why? The only thing that helps me is to clean my eyes with warm water and then close my eye lids and massage vasaline over my eye lids, rubbish as it sounds,this seems to soothe and stop my eyes from weeping for a few hours and then repeat the process.

    Weeping ankle ulcers can mean there are many things going on in the lower limb. You need to think about the underlying cause so get an assessment from a health professional. There are so many creams on the market how do you know where to start. Compression bandaging often reduces weeping but you need to have a doppler assessment first to ensure your arterial circulation is suited to that. I would advise a trip to see your nurse.

    same thing is happening with my eyes even if when fan runs on the slow mode still my eyes water a lot. I checked my eyes several times but doctor says i dont have eye problem its just pressure on the eye. but i feels bad that i have to put my hanky again and again on my eyes. please tell me the solution.

    I had cosmetic surgery on my eyes last march,this had healed but i now have runny eyes this makes my eyes so sore and people think i am crying all the time which is embaresing and frustrating.Sometimes when i drive i cannot see properly as i have to constantly wiping my eyes.

    Hi I had watery eyeas and when I was 7 years old I had an operation on my eyes I was told I had blocked tearducts so I had to have thin clear tubes put in both my eyes maybe you should get you eyes checked out. My eyes are great now they don't water as much as they used to, I used to get bullied in school because it looked like I was crying but now I don't :)) x

    I have my second venous ulcer on the inner ankle. The pain has been excruciating and the weeping is very heavy. It smelled like a dead fish. We finally got the infection cleared up but now 2 months later the pain is worsening and now it smells sort of yeasty/sweet and the weeping is very dark yellow almost brownish around the edges. My skin is being eaten around the area where the ulcer is weeping. Bandages changed daily by me. Does anyone know if this means the infection is back? I have venous insufficiency could be due to a blood clot years ago. I am losing weight and suddenly having hot and cold sweats at nite. Any ideas or help U can offer would be great. This is not only depressing it is very difficult to work. My Drs. comment was it is an ulcer. It is what it is. Does the honey really work and what is manuka honey and where can you get it?

    I use Unna Boot bandages for leg ulcers and have been suffering now for five months with an ankle ulcer. I can relate to what you say about the pain. I have been using Manuka Honey and have seen a big difference. Really feel this is healing the ulcer. Go on to Amazon and put Manuka Wound Honey in the search and you will find it.

    I can totally relate! I am 15 years old and have suffered with watering eyes for around 18 months. I use to love wearing eye liner and other eye make up and I can't wear any of it, I feel like it has ruined my life and do get quite depressed about it. My self confidence has fallen dramatically. Been to the doctors repeated times and they blame it on hayfever, yet my eyes water all year round! It is ridiculous. And definitely effects my school work, sometimes my eyes water so much I can't see or if not I'm distracted in lesson cos I'm constanstly wiping my eyes. In the winter I tend to get red marks all around my eyes and my eyes can swell up, it can be very painful. :( Wouldn't wish it on anyone.

    hi iam 22 year old i have had two ops on my eyes and there still very squint i went to glasgow royal when i was 17 and they told me i use my two eyes as two eyes as where most peope use there two eyes as one and for that reason they told me if the did the op i would be left with double vision and they can only fix it by blinding me off in one eye which i thought was'nt worth it. i just want to know iam i the only person in the world that can't be fixed what is wrong with me can someone please email back and tell me if there is anything else i can do.

    I see the same way as you, with 2 eyes separately rather than working together! I had 4 surgeries when I was younger and still have issues. Although I'm lucky and it's not really noticeable, my eyes still cross from time to time. I've also been wearing glasses since I was a baby. I can't imagine not wearing them. You are not the only 1! 😊😊😊

    Hi It seems there is no medical cure to our disorder, but after bearing all the insults and comments I did some excercises and practices on my own and though now I can control my eyes to make them look normal in front of people its very much exhausting. Its been 4 yrs since I am doing this and though people dont remember me being a squint holding your eyes together and faking normality is too exhausting. but glad to see there are people like me, fighting similar battles of life :(.

    I would strongly suggest a lid scrub. They sell lid scrubbing pads at places like Walmart and Walgreens. I used to and sometimes still get styes a lot. I'd get mucus in my eyes, stringy things, little zit like puss bubbles on my lids, they'd be dry or watery and itchy and red and bloodshot. What I did was, always wash my hands. In the morning after I wake up and at night before I go to sleep, I would wash my face, then my hands, and then I would splash water on my eyes, use a lid scrubber, close my eyes and scrub it, and then rinse it off and towel dab them. After a few months, my eyes felt better and they stopped hurting. To prevent infection- if your eyes burn, either microwave or semi-boil water til it's pretty warm. Soak a rag in the water, wring it out, then either lightly dab your eyes with it or lay you head back, close your eyes, and lay the cloth upon your eyes.

    I'm 35 and find my watery eyes very frustrating. Mainly get it when laughing, I do a lot of laughing! Eyes are sometimes quite saw though I'm in front of the computer all day. Thinking back to school days I do remember my eyes looking very red, when I say eyes, the start of the lids where the hair folicals start. Would love to be able to do something to prevent this happening

    Dave, my eyes sting from time to time, but mainly when my make up is on. but they are constantly sore. i have bags underneath my eyes from where the constant tearing seems to gather etc. my eyes are usually so swollen and bloodshot. ive started to develop headaches, not sure if its when im concentrating mixed in with not being able to see properly or what... i have another app with a different consultant on dec 20th. if i find out anything different ill be sure to let you guys know. i hope your eyes improve for you, this is truly horrible. i know how you must feel.

    hi ive been having watery eyes for a few weeks now. Started one morning my eyes were red and itchy (both eyes), i was told i had pink eye. two days later I went to the doctors they said it was pink eye so they gave me "erythromycin ophthalmic ointment." It went away about 5 to 6 days later but my eyes are still watering. Its been 4 weeks total. Every morning i wake up with some crust around my eye lids (not as much as before) but enough you can see and feel. Sometime people ask me if im high because my eyes are red. When they start to get itchy i rub them and they quickly get irritated swollen. I use eye drops everyday it helps a little, i just would like the watering to go away, what could this be? How can this go away?

    I've been diagnosed with dry eyes and blepharitis in both eyes but one eye waters continually, the white of my eye is inflamed despite antibiotic ointment, I'm cleaning the eyelids twice a day and using refresher drops for the dry eyes but nothing seems to improve them, they're sore and uncomfortable and its been going on for 3 months now and Im desperate to get it back to normal.

    i also have this condition and have to go to the hospital approx every 3 months and i am told the same thing every time i go and that is to keep up with the lid hygiene with baby shampoo and warm water, this never helps and nothing else seems to either, it is so depressing to be asked if i am tired because my eyes are red and bloodshot, i feel for everyone with this condition and i know there is no cure and treatment is usually cleaning the lids but it doesnt work for me.

    i went to an eye specialist cause i had severe blepharitis and they gave me doxycycline pills for 3 months which seem to clear mione up ask you doc about gettin reffered to an eye specialist

I've been staying round for about 6 weeks and about a month ago my eyes were itchy and started getting swolen on the eye lids and then dry skin under my eyes and now it's much worse and extremely painful and red round both my eyes, it stings constantly and i can't open my eyes properly because the skin is so raw and dry, i'm having to where sunglasses because how awful it looks. My lips are also dry and sore and itchy but not red or swolen, this also developed the same time as my eyes. I don't have a local doctor and am quite embarrased to show anyone, I was wondering what type of cream or medication I should use or what medical problem these symptoms may be describing. I'll be very greatful for your advise.
