Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
Let me start by reassuring you that this is no way is HIV. Moreover from your history, you are not even at any risk of HIV. So please do not worry.
This sore is a typical vitamin deficiency sore. Some people are predisposed to such sores and hence i recommend you to take a good multivitamin supplement from now on at least for a month. Tab. Neurobion Forte will be a good supplement, once at bed time for a month.
Also i recommend the application of Xytee Gel on the affected spot. 2-3 times a day.
Try these medications and let me know,
Patient replied :
Also, for days now, one of my eyes has been very red with the veins touching the iris. I wear contact lenses but I kept them off, rested my eyes and treated it with visine. However, today I noticed that the redness worsened and I feel some discomfort in my eye. I looked in the mirror and the top of the iris looks "dented," slanted instead of round.
What does this mean?
Thank you for your follow up.
Was there any recent trauma to your eye?
It could also indicate conjunctivitis, however that denting needs tobe examined by an ophthalmologist with a slit lamp examination.
I will advise you to use Olopatadine eye drops 1 drop in the affected eye every 6 hours. It could be due to some irritation from the lens.
But the veins touching the iris indicate ciliary congestion and that is pertinent to conjunctivitis.
If it does not settle down on taking olopatadine then you need to use ciplox eye drop 3 times daily every 6 hours.
