Patient :The inside corner of my left eye seems to be inflamed. It was red last night and cleared a little today. I woke up with my eye almost glued shut with discharge(crust) all around my ye and stuck to my eyelashes. Right now it burns and itches and I feel like a foreign object is in it but there isn't. Yesterday before I got ready for school, I put on mascara on the top AND bottom of my eyelashes. Not to long ago, about 2 months ago, my eye felt the same way but it was on the inside bottom of my eye and swollen and a thin white slime-like object appeared on the swollen part. I am 12 years old.
