where to start!!

i have a few things going on:
1. there are white bumps near the base of my eyelashes. they are making my eyes dry and its quite painful..the pain is in both eyes, ive only checked one eye for the bumps
2. i have a, what looks like, a puncture a bite of some bug or something on my ring finger. i havent worn a ring on that finger for a while and near the bite, it is just red, and it makes a ring around my finger.
3. ive been tired a lot lately and am having a bad headache now. felt like i was going to throw up during school today.

any information or ideas would be greatly appreciated

Re: where to start!!


Definitely get your eyes checked out. DON'T touch them with your fingers, after this is gone, throw out your eyemakeup and purchase new stuff.

The redness on your finger could be a slight infection, an allergic reaction or something stuck in there. I cut hair, and sometimes I have a hair stuck in my skin. It gets VERY red and painful. I check it out with a powerful magnifying glass...and yep, it's a hair everytime. You could try soaking your hand in warm salty water, and then apply polysporin. If you can check it out with a magnifying glass, that would at least allow you to see up close if it's anything serious

As far as how you're feeling, you could have picked up a bug of some kind (ingested), it could possibly be hormonal (prior to period), or a migrane. The weather patterns have been horrendous in many areas, and severe lows can cause those feelings.
Gravol will help with the nausea and possibly try a migrane over the counter painkiller.
Are you on any birthcontrol pills? They could cause those feelings as well (I remember feeling crappy on them a lot)

If none of the above would be best to see a doc.

Keep us posted as far as outcome.

Hope you feel better soon!!
It's all a matter of perspective!
