I've had a VERY sore left eye for 4 days. Today is the worst it's no longer red it is going purple. I admit at first I itched but I stopped. I googled how to sooth it and it said to wash it out, though you do that by holding warm cotton on the outside of your eye lid. Never worked. I asked someone I know and they said to rinse it out in cold luke warm water and all that did was dry it out!
Please does anyone have any tips. It's 3 days until my doctors appointment and it's so SO sore.

The eye is purple, or your eyelid? It could be a reaction to something. Stop using any makeup or other facial products, especially anything new, until you find out what's going on. Not sure what you mean by warm cotton. I would try a washcloth/facecloth/face flannel dampened with warm water and hold that gently on your eyelid.

It's purple from the inner corner and spreads out. I admit my itching turned it from red to purple so I stopped and today it's just red. I only wear foundation and I've used it for 3 years, so I'm down on make-up. My right eye burns but it's not sore, itchy and burning like my left. If it's still bad tomorrow morning a family member will be taking me up. I just really need something to sooth it because it's horrible and you can't exactly take paracetamol for this sort of thing.
