Can you get an eye infection from getting your own semen in your eye?
I'm being totally serious here, but last week while masturbating, I got semen in my eye. The following day, that eye was very slightly tender. In the past few days, my eyelid has gotten progressively more swollen. I've looked on google, and I can't find anything similar to what is going on with my eye. I don't think it is "pink eye" because the actual eyeball is not pink or irritated looking, and there's no discharge. My eyelid just hurts and is swollen.
I started using Visine today in an attempt to help ease the irritation, and my dad called in some amoxicillin for me (he's a dentist, so he just called in oral amoxicillin, not the kind that comes in eyedrop form). I've only used the Visine once and taken one dose of amoxicillin, and it seems to be clearing up a bit. If it doesn't start getting better immediately, I'll go see a doctor on Monday.
And to clarify, I don't know if you can get, like, gonorrhea or something in your eye, but either way, I know I don't have any STIs. I haven't been sexually active since my last blood panel.
Is it a total coincidence that my eye became inflamed and irritated the day after I got semen in it, or could the two events possibly be related? I'd go see a real doctor, but I don't know if I could bear to relate this story to somebody face to face.
