Lately my eye has been having eye ache for days..it feels a bit burning kind of..it does feel warmish. my eye is not red or anything. should i be ok?
i googled it and it said the symptoms for eye herpes is red eye, blurred vision, teary eye and i have none of those.
it feels kinda burning feeling but not red or anything...should be inside the eye by drop of saliva? it shouldnt be std?

Alan M Kozarsky, MD responded:
It doesn't sound like a herpes infection of your eye but eye discomfort which persists more than a day or two is a very good reason to visit an eye doctor.

Herpes eye infections are generally not sexually transmitted but more like fever blisters in their occurrence and recurrence. The specific herpes virus which causes most eye infections is not the same one which causes genital venereal infections.
