Reaction to Botox?

My eyes are slightly red rimmed. Is this a temporary reaction to the Botox injections? Or is it more of just a "tired" appearance from the blinking & squinting?

My eyes do not seem real dry, but I'm still using Refresh eye drops anyway to be on the safe side. I also have Lotemax (prescription) that I use morning and night to suppress any irritation that might be going on.

Hello Karen,

You might want to try an eye lid scrub morning and night for a few days. Blepharitis could be the culprit.

A couple of drops baby shampoo in a small (3 oz. paper cups) of warm water and stir. Thoroughly wet a cotton ball in the solution, squeeze out excess water.

Gently scrub the lids back and forth a few times. Rinse with a plain water soaked cotton ball. Use a new cotton ball for each eye.

Let us know what happens.

Judy

If Judy is correct about the possibility it could be blepharitis, do what she said. and cleanse your eyelids every day. I use a lid car product as I find the baby shampoo still stings (me) a bit. You can also place a face cloth over your eyes whilst in the shower and let the warm warm pour over it. Hope something helps.
