Red Dots Under And Above The Eyes

Recommended Posts

Stupid I got into gluten yesterday, and now I've got red dots around my eyes. They're blood red...it looks like someone took a marker to me. I've got to go to a funeral and be a pall bearer (yes, a girl can be a pall bearer) and I look terrible in my face. I don't feel to hot, but, I'll be fine. I’m hoping it’ll clear up before the funeral…anyway, just wondering if I’m the only one that’s dealt with this.

I'm sorry you have to be a pall bearer... :(

I'm sorry for your loss...

That said, I get those dots, too. I normally get them when I throw up, and usually only when I have that glass-digesting pain and I'm throwing up. The first time I had them was with mono.

The dr. said they are caused by little capillaries bursting under pressure, not just with vomiting, but with coughing hard. The only thing you can do is cover them with makeup and they'll go away in a few days.


Alright, don't worry even if things end up a bit too heavy

We'll all float on, alright

Well we'll float on good news is on the way...

Thanks, ChelsE...I'll be okay, just take a little time. Ouch, sorry you had to go through mono, one of my friends got that once :(

Wow...that's kind of strange, I haven't throw up yet and I've gotten them twice. Happy I haven't thrown up yet though.

Do they itch and sometimes burn?

I have had considerable trouble with them. I got them the day I got glutened this week. I went to my doctors partner because my doctor is on holidays. He gave me a cream I awoke this morning my eye had swollen shut and my head ached. I just got back a half hour ago from the hospital (from having my brother drive me over at 4am). They said that whatever the problem was compounded by the cream which I am obviously allergic to, so they gave me benedryl, and ice packs and it is starting to go down. Another lost day of work.

Gee Rusla--get some rest and I hope you feel better soon--you must be exhausted! :)

Rusla- Ouch! :wacko: Take it easy there and get plently of sleep and rest. No, I haven't had any problems like that. No irration or burning whatsoever. I feel rough from being gluten and whatnot though. Anyway, take care and I hope you feel better =)

Well the time of getting up is the time I am usually going to work at, just the whole incident is not nice.

Mine itch and burn, in some ways they look like my DH but on the eye. I wonder if that is what it is as it only affects one eye.
