I remember my father having to pause, annoyed, as he rested his eyes from a sudden incident of “welder’s flashburn.” This is like a sunburn to the eye, the more serious burns resulting in pain and redness. A proper assessment by your doctor is highly recommended for this event; however, few will actually go. To preserve your vision for your senior years, here are 4 practical treatments that offer relief and effective recovery for an eye flashburn/sunburn:
- Raw potato poultice – shred potato, clump it together and apply to closed eye(s)
- Vitamin A oil drops – apply to open eye(s)
- Cold pack – apply to closed eye(s) for 10 minutes
- Euphrasia 30Ch homeopathic – take as per label
FYI: potatoes can stain purple or black.
Consult your ND or MD as to whether any of the above remedies are right for you.

Got a bee sting? Try Apis (30C or 200C (200C is a little bit stronger than 30C)). AND GO TO THE HOSPITAL if you are worried!
Got a peanut reaction (synthetic/chemical)? Try Carbolic Acid (30C or 200C). AND GO TO THE HOSPITAL if you are worried!
If anaphylaxis is the issue, try either Poumon-Histamine or Gentiana lutea (200C) AND GO TO THE HOSPITAL!!! You may find that you do not need treatment once you get there, but don’t take the risk – homeopathy may not be for everyone.

Boiron, a homeopathic company, makes a remedy called Camilia. A classmate of mine who happens to be a mother of three swears by this remedy, as well as my very own sister who is a mother of two. Dan Conner (Roseanne) also suggests using frozen waffles for the little monsters to gum on, as the waffles are quite pliable and are an excellent tool for soaking up drool.
