    Well, eye infection is normal for people who have suffered concussion. And in common, when it happens, it can make your eyes feel itchy, red, burred. So you should be careful about it. To treat your symptom, you can put some tea bags on your eyes. As we know that tea bags contain a high concentration of the chemical epigallocatechin gallate, which acts as an anti-inflammatory agent that can relieve your symptom. Also, you can have eye patch to protect your eyes from irritants.

    Actually, there are many sequelaes of cerebral concussion, infection is one of them. It's quite normal for many people who have this situation, so don't worry and take following measures. At first, you can thoroughly check each eye for any foreign body. Then, clean your hands and take some tea compresses on your eyes. In addition, you can mix equal parts honey with distilled or boiled water to make a solution, you can put the solution around your eyes, which will be helpful. However, if the symptom still exist and no changes, ask a doctor for help, who can give you a professional solution.

    Eye infection is very common. Usually it is the infection of eye or tissue around the eye. It is mainly classified into bacterial infection and viral infection according the cause. It could be categorized to conjunctivitis, blepharitis and corneal infection. Corneal infection is rare case but it could impair vision seriously. Conjunctivitis is a very common eye infection which is called pink eye, impacted membrane in eyes. As to viral conjunctivits, you could apply some saline solution to help clean eyes. Normal viral conjunctivitis does not last long, but if your eyes are infected with herpes simplex virus, it might take months to heal up. If your eyes are bacterial infected, then you need to instill antibiotics eye drops to help your get recovered. Normally it is impossible to get eye infection because of a concussion. A concussion is usually caused by a blunt force on head. It can cause blood shots in eyes, not infection. If you really get eye infection, you need to find out what cause it, so that you could apply proper treatment.
