He has a sever infection around the right eye , he must get Augmantin + pain killer, but I recommend to refer him to the emergency to get more invistigations Thankx for sharing
It's herpes zoster ..should be treated with Acivir Dt 800 mg six hourly for 5 days and local herprex ointment should be applied ..pain killers like GABA neuron be given will recover . Post herpic neuralgia may be a complication ..!!
Thanks everyone for your kind & valuable opinion. Suspecting HZO, referred the patient to Medicine & Eye consultants on very same day.
Diagnosis please sir
