Among the worst? Those biting, stinging bugs. They're mostly more annoying than anything, but a sting or a bite on your face — near your eyes — can be much more than just frustrating. However, if the site of the bug bite becomes infected it can cause a more serious problem, preseptal or orbital cellulitis.
Ohlson said orbital cellulitis can be life-threatening, and is often accompanied by ificant eyelid swelling, redness, blurred vision, fever, pain especially during eye movement, headache and double vision. Preseptal cellulitis, while not as serious, can lead to orbital cellulitis, so both require intervention with antibiotics in a timely fashion.
Lyme disease and West Nile are the most common of these conditions in the Midwest. A bacterium carried and spread by deer ticks is what le to Lyme disease, and early symptoms include fever, rash, facial paralysis and arthritis.
If left untreated or if treatment is delayed, symptoms will worsen, and central nervous system problems can develop. A clinical blood test is needed to determine if you have Lyme disease. Unfortunately, false negative are commonplace, and many people go months or years with symptoms. West Nile virus is another somewhat common Midwestern disease. Most infected people have few or no symptoms, but those who do show s suffer from fever, headache, vomiting or rashes.
Seek urgent or emergency care, preferably with an optometrist or ophthalmologist — before the eye starts swelling — to get that stinger out.
