    I have never had an allergic reaction before to anything. But today I was digging through walmart's selection of mulches to find some redwood mulch to line the bottom of my pot for my new Drosera regia. I didn't find any....but on the way home my eye started to get blurry. I thought it was just my contacts drying out, but when I got home it started to get really red. I took my contacts out and hoped it would get better. Turns out it could be pink eye caused by an allergic reaction to some of the dye in one of the mulches. Well I'm hoping it goes away soon because I'd rather not go to the doctor and I'd like to be able to see clearly out of both eyes. Thought I'd share.....

    I shouldn't complain too much, I know it's a pretty small trouble in the big scheme of things. I don't think it's pink eye anymore. Just an alergic reaction that apparently bothers my one eye and gives me a sore throat. It's better today already.

    Pond Boy, that's quite a list! Are you back to 100%?

    Whoa Clint that must have been bad:O

    Firewired: Those where only while I was on the meds,and know I have the chronic ailment I`ve had since a few months after my snakebite.

    Niki: Red man syndrome is where you start swelling up and getting red and itchy after recieving vanc. I was on that for an infection in my pic line,wich caused a 104 fever and a blood clot in my lungs,and was caused by Methacilin resistent Satphlobacus aureas. From what I understand it affects each gender the same at about one in every 3 people. It went away after a dose of Diphenahydramine(beandryl) and so I only had it the first time.
