It is once again that time of year where i somehow manage to get a pimple on the inside of my eyelid.

Which simultaneously oozes puss into my eye while also making the eyelid swell up and irritate my eye so it weeps all the time.

At least, i think that's what it is. I can't actually see the pimple. but it might be far enough under the lid that i can't see it, and it'd rather that than my eye is sore and filling up with white gunk because i've discovered some wonderful new disease =P

Oh yeah, speaking of which, the cold which i thought i was almost over seems to be trying to make a comeback. Every morning for the past several days i've woken up coughing up bits of crap =P

Okay, looking back on what i've just written perhaps i should add a TMI cut :)

Well i _would_ have tried that if it hadn't turned out to be an interesting new disease instead, thanks :)

It could be pinkeye, which causes symptoms similar to what you've described. You can go with home treatments, or get a prescription for antibiotics. My kids come down with it every year or so. If it happens during school we go for the antibiotics so they can go back to school after 24 hrs, during break we just use home remedies and it goes away in 7-10 days.

If you think that might be it, wash your hands a lot, and your pillowcase, and don't rub the other eye because it spreads between eyes easily.

Too late! Although my other eye is apparently a tough bastard and beat the infection back in less than 20 hours. And the other eye is _mostly_ better about three days after i started noticing the symptoms.

So if my immune system can go to town on pinkeye, why am i still suffering from this damn cold after almost a month? =P
