Have you tried washing it out with some water?

I've done that about fifteen times

Go to the doctor, it could be several things some of them resulting in permanent damage.

@^ what he said. Internet message boards really aren't the place to look for medical advice and the sooner people realise it, the better.

I was going to comment, but then I realized that I shouldn't, since it will keep him from the doctor's office longer than he should be.

GO NOW!

then call an ambulance, it sounds like you're having an allergic reaction.

edit: yeah, taxi is probably a better idea.

Or a taxi (it's way cheaper if you live in the US, even with insurance)

I had a friend that had a problem with the inside of his eye and he almost scratched through every layer of his cornea. It would have resulted in permanent blindness in that eye.

I had an eye infection for over a month. It just faded away last week. At first I thought it was just something minor, then I thought it was a stye or something, then when I was clawing at my face and rolling around in agony I decided it was time to see a doctor.

If it doesn't get better quickly, GO TO A DOCTOR.

What? These forums are the best place for medical advice. I say leeches will do the trick.

Eye problems can be serious. I know a guy who almost lost his due to an improperly cleaned contact lense. It was a minor bother of an infection that turned overnight into the most painful experiance of his life and he almost lost that eye.

Call your doctor. Tell him the symptoms.

Your eye will probably turn into a magic killing eye. You're most likely the reincarnation of Balor. Watch out for the Peoples of the Goddess Danu.

Or go to a doctor. But not if his name is Lugh. In that case, stay away.

On the plus side, I think this qualifies you for a couple of PrC's.

Are you allergic to anything? Or were you around something that some people are allergic to?

You were wise coming to the Internet for advice.

That eye could be possessed. You need to get it out of there before the evil spirit in your eye spreads to your brain. Quick, get ahold of some holy water, a great deal of painkillers and a spoon.

I got shot in the eye with a air-soft gun many years ago. Doctor said if I didn't blink at the right time I would have lost an eye.

On the plus side I got an eye patch for a week.

Dude, not cool. This guy has a serious medical problem and you think it's funny to start cracking jokes? What kind of insensative, stupid jerk are you?

Fire can solve just about any problem even thrid degree burns.

In all seroiusness, hope you it's not too serious and you get well soon, and should you have to wear an eyepatch, you're more than welcome to join my pirate crew.

Good question. He must not post that much. He's only an orc while I'm a bug bear and I've been only for a playgrounder for less time.
