Wednesday (5/9/12) 3:41pm - ... wherein Peter lists the symptoms of the eye problem.

Some info about this eye problem:

My current plan is to give it one more day, see if it gets better, and if it doesn't, drop by the clinic and pay a small pile of money to get it looked at.  Mainly I want to verify that this isn't something that will cause permanent damage.

Peter, this sounds like what I just went through in Costa Rica. If so, it's an infection of the eyelash follicles (basically a stye) and will go away on its own over time. You can help it along the way by cleaning the eye lids regularly with a gentle soap. And some websites recommended putting moist teabags on the eyes, but who knows about that. Also recommended was coconut oil.

If it gets extreme, you might get a prescription for an anti-bacterial topical cream.

If it's a stye I would definitely recommend an antibacterial cream, I had one with my daughter that lasted 4 months, then when we used the cream it went away in a week (of course you need to finish off the course).
