It seems that no matter what I do, my eyes are always yellow around the edges, and some kind of discharge builds up at the corners that are close to my nose.
Does anyone know what might be the problem, and what I can do ? Any help would be appreciated.
Yes, the whites of my eyes only around the corners. If I look at mirror and turn my head to the side, then I can see that there is some yellow color, but sometimes my eyes are clear, and eyes are never completely yellow.
hi again, I'm not a doctor ,but as i said before the 1st thing i think of is jaundice. Due to an increased amount of billirubin in the blood.Sometimes newborns have it. have u noticed any skin changes?ie yellow tint ? either way i would (if possible) have it checked out. The not knowing would drive me crazy!
No, my skin is fine. Theres no yellow tint to it, although I do have mild acne which is clearing up. But is there a way to reduce the amount of billirubin in your bloodstream ? And what exactly is jaundice ?
hi again ...
first of all jaundice is a symptom not a disease or condition. newborns sometimes get it because their livers are not mature enough. jaundice can be associated with liver or gall bladder irregularities.I know of no way to self control the amount of billirubin in ones own bloodstream. again i may be way off base with this , could be something completely different!!
Hey guys, about your eyes. Dont feel bad mine are like that too, and I still dont know why. I havent gone to the doc. but I wanted to let you guys know that Milk Thistle (an herb) does help. Its for your liver and helps alot. One time my b/f had food poising and started turning yellow, his mother (a health nut) gave him Milk Thistle and his color came back and everything. You should try it.
If the yellowish area has been there for a long time with little change, you probably just have pinguecula, which is a little extra tissue at the corners of your eyes resulting from years of exposure to wind and UV radiation. Try an image search on google for pinguecula and see if it looks familiar.
I agree with margosuperstar. That was my first reaction. Yellowness is the key here. Either way you should go to a dr and find out for sure. You need to be sure it is caught, if in fact it is anythign serious. Aside from that, I'm a veterinary technician and I see jaundice cases. Usually the skin, eyes, tounge, ears etc are yellow with yellowish tinge. Just the ohter day a dog came in and the entire eye was a dark dark yellow color(like mustard). The depth of color varies, but please go get it checked out. It is important! GL
