Question: His eyes have been having a yellow discharge. SOmetimes they get so swollen that he can not open them. Both eyes,
i put conjunctivitus oitment in them.
He does hane entoption the eylids curl
in. Would this cause such a discharge.
Entropion will indeed cause discharge and “infection” of the eyes with yellow discharge. When the eyelid rubs against the eye, it causes irritation which is why there is a discharge. Make sure the conjunctivitis ointment does not contain a steroid since he is predisposed to corneal ulcers, and steroids are contraindicated with ulcers. I would be using a plain antibiotic ointment, and hot compresses (run hot water over a wash cloth and wring it out) applied to the eyes twice a day to help him feel better. The definitive answer however is surgery to correct the entropion.
