Viral Conjunctivitis After Using Public Massage Chair
Over 4 weeks ago, I tried one of those "massage chairs" at the "Calgary Stampede & Exhibition" (a local rodeo/fair) for 15 minutes of deep massage, from head to ankle. She casually mentioned it would release toxins 'n I should take a shower and drink lots of water.Got home many hours later, 'n completely forgot about what she'd said until a day later, when my throat was super sore, swollen glands ... and right away appeared more: bad sinus infections, fever, head-aches(never get head-aches normally 'cause I drink nothing but water and plenty of it), severe itching, rashes, and a reappearance of colitis ... and now (over 4 weeks since the massage), I've developed a bad case of conjunctivitis in my right eye. Guess I probably hadn't realized why my eyes were itching - and hadn't looked in a mirror till yesterday. 1/3 of the white is now blood-red. Today (likely have had the conjunctivitis for a few days already)I started with the tea-bag (question: just placed on the lid like a poultice?) also, put several drops of fresh lemon juice in a half-teaspoon measure(great little eye-wash contraption)and washed the eye with that - hurt bad for several seconds, then felt managable. I'm concerned - I'm certain it's worse today than yesterday - now about 1/3 of the white is red. Also, got itching under my arms, my torso, arms and on the skin around my eyes and forehead. I'm on a very tight budget and desire remedies that are effective yet inexpensive. I so appreciate this site and the excellent advice!
