Fê Paes Leme had sex with glasses to avoid conjunctivitis, but what’s the point?

Actors Fernanda Paes Lemy and Joao Vicente de Castro said on the podcast “Quem Pode, Pod” that they had sex with eyeglasses and tampons to avoid conjunctivitis. “She was so afraid of conjunctivitis that she had sex with glasses,” said Joao Vicente.

Conjunctivitis is inflammation of the conjunctiva, the tissue that lines the eyeball and the inside of the upper and lower eyelids and serves to lubricate the eyes. There are different types of conjunctivitis and some of them are highly contagious.

However, the use of glasses does not prevent the transmission of conjunctivitis in viral or bacterial cases, according to the ophthalmologists he consulted. live wellbecause it occurs directly through contact.

“The main means of contamination is through the hands,” says Cesar Motta, MD, medical director of the Mota Avtalmology Clinic in Rio de Janeiro, who specializes in cataract and refractive surgery. “There is no point in wearing glasses if you scratch your eyes and touch someone or somewhere,” the doctor says.

If a severely infected person gets close and kisses or hugs another person, they can spread the disease. Motta warns that “any close contact can transmit.”

Glasses can act as a mechanical barrier so that the affected person does not put their hands in their eyes and touch other surfaces. “It reduces the risk of transmitting it because there is less risk of a person rubbing the eye,” Motta says.

The main way to avoid cross-infection is to keep surfaces very clean and wash your hands well with soap and water, or use gel alcohol. Agents that transmit conjunctivitis can remain on external surfaces for up to four hours, according to Lucien Moreira, an ophthalmologist at Hospital de Olhos de Parana and a professor at Positivo University.

He warns that “people who are immune-compromised, who have drier eyes or who have chickenworm often get conjunctivitis all the time.” Those with dry eyes also have lower production of tears, which contain defense cells (immunoglobulins), and are more likely to get sick.

Types of conjunctivitis

In general, conjunctivitis can be infectious (caused by microorganisms) or non-infectious (a reaction to certain substances). See below, some common names to classify conjunctivitis and the main villains behind each of them.

contagious origin

Neonatal conjunctivitis: It appears in the first weeks of life and may be associated with sexually transmitted diseases transmitted from mother to child during vaginal delivery, such as gonorrhea, chlamydia or herpes.

Bacterial conjunctivitis: Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae, and Haemophilus sp are the most common infectious agents. But the cause of gonorrhea (Neisseria gonorrhoeaeand chlamydiaChlamydia trachomatis) can affect the eyes.

Viral conjunctivitis: The most common and highly contagious type is often caused by adenovirus, the agent implicated in many colds. Other viral conditions can also cause these manifestations, such as measles, chickenpox, and the common cold itself. In rare cases, it can be caused by an enterovirus or herpes virus.

Fungal or parasitic conjunctivitis: Worms, larvae, amoebas and candidaamong other fungi can also cause conjunctivitis, to a lesser extent.

non-infectious origin

Allergic conjunctivitis: It is caused by a person’s hypersensitivity to certain substances, such as mold, pollen, weeds, dust, mites, animal hair, or cockroaches. the tire may be spotty, that is, it quickly disappears; seasonal (more visible in certain seasons, such as spring or fall); or perennial (can appear at any time). It can also be associated with atopic diseases (dermatitis, asthma or rhinitis). These conditions are not contagious, but they can increase susceptibility to infections.

Irritant or toxic conjunctivitis: Chemicals, toxins, cleaning products, pollution, smoke, contact lenses, cosmetics, hair dye, medications, chlorine, UV rays, and foreign objects can also cause conjunctivitis without the risk of infection.

Dry keratoconjunctivitis: Also called “dry eye syndrome,” this condition is caused by a change in tear production that can be caused by certain autoimmune diseases, aging, or environmental factors.

treatment or treatment

To determine the treatment, the ophthalmologist must determine the causes of conjunctivitis. Self-treatment is contraindicated, as the wrong eye drops can aggravate the condition.

Generally, bacterial types take about a week to resolve, while viral types can take 7 to 14 days to recover.

Precautions to avoid cross infection

  • Stay at home for as long as your doctor has prescribed.

  • Avoid touching your eyes

  • Do not share towels, pillowcases, makeup, etc.

  • Wash your hands and face often

  • Clean the secretions with a soaked cotton

  • Clean the common objects, such as the remote control and the phone, with alcohol gel after use

  • Do not wear contact lenses

  • Change contact lenses after recovery to prevent reinfection

  • Clean the glasses you wore while you had conjunctivitis.
