Nylon In My Eye

Published: November 08, 2018
Dear TeenHealthFX,
On Halloween I had an accident. I didn't realize that a strand of my wig was stuck in my left eye. I thought that what I felt was just the wig itself or my own hair brushing against my eye. It was there all evening and in to the middle of the night. I'm terrified that my eye is permanently damaged from a piece of nylon scratching it for many hours.

Dear Nylon In My Eye,

TeenHealthFX cannot conduct a proper diagnosis online. FX suggests scheduling an appointment with your adolescent medicine specialist so he/she can conduct a proper diagnosis.

If you don't have a doctor and live in northern New Jersey, you can call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health at 973-971-5199 for an appointment with an adolescent medicine specialist or contact your local teen health center. You can also contact your insurance company for a list of in-network providers.
