Do flea bites cause redness in the eyes on humans?July 30, 2017 at 9:21 AM #71698
I wonder if fleas can get in human eyes because he says he feels them in his eyes, what can i do?September 28, 2018 at 7:46 AM #85401
So you know, this happened to me. A flea somehow jumped into my eye and bit me. It was excruciating and the redness was unreal. I went to the doc and he prescribed antibiotic drops. It cleared up in 3 days.October 3, 2018 at 8:08 AM #85482
There’s a few things you can do (and need to be doing): first – this might go without saying but why risk anyone hurting themselves – do NOT attempt sticking things like Qtips into your eye. Not only would it not work, getting overzealous can get dangerous real quick. That said..
Ocusoft for the eyelids, since fleas like hair and unfortunately brows and lashes do count as such. Saline solution contains boric acid, and certain allergy eye drops containing antihistamine as well as the ones used to treat pinkeye. If one flea gets in your eye there’s inevitably going to be more (horrifying, I know), so like vacuuming you’re going to want to flush your eye. Run a soft stream of lukewarm tap water and – gently – position yourself so that the water’s lightly breezing over your eye. (You won’t have to go very far – you should hear a high-pitched and fast-paced “ticking” sound as they’re being evicted.)
Last but not least – and this is the most bizarre – activated charcoal will draw them out. You don’t put it in your eyes, per se, but take a tablet (this Has to be the tablet form you get in the vitamin section of grocery stores – charcoal used in barbecue pits is NOT recommended) and hold it up on one of the outer corners of your eye (inner works too, but outer corners won’t be obstructed by your hand so you can see what’s happening) and watch the m*therf****rs come out. Ladies if you wear makeup you can add a little bit of activated charcoal to your existing mascara by opening a tablet and dipping the brush part of the wand in it. Since a single tablet of activated charcoal has the surface area equivalent of like ten football fields with a magnetic pull on organic material (without getting too scientific about it, this is how and why activated charcoal has its increasing number of uses), fleas are drawn in, get stuck, and eventually die in the tablet. It’s a case of truth being stranger than fiction, but weird as it is it works.October 3, 2018 at 11:47 AM #85497
Oh yeah, and while you’re doing all of the above, get yourself to an ophthalmologist as soon as possible. TAKE VIDEO OF WHAT IS HAPPENING TO SHOW TO THE DOCTOR. Show what happens when you rinse your eye, decide to use activated charcoal (especially if a full-on adult one comes out when you’re doing nothing more than holding a charcoal tablet that isn’t even touching you), etc etc etc and also forgot to mention aside from Ocusoft for wiping the eyelids, you might try ivermectin as well.
