This is how my problem surfaced, with eyes, movement, piercing photosensitivity. Light coming in drapes burned my eyes. It was insanely painful. Iíve had metal in my eye, from hanging a chandelier. This was 40x worse.
Opthomologist saw my corneas were sloughing. Thought I had SJS. It wasnít.
Topically, I used Colloidal Silver gel for some relief. Also, coconut oil helps to suffocate or move them to corners. They hurt more within eyelids, in my experience.
Protect your eyes. When they get nasty in there, itís impossible to see, do anything but cry.
