Lotepred T contains loteprednol(corticosteroid )&tobramycin(antibiotic). Loteprednol just gives relief in itching eyes,not CURE.you are just 18 yrs old boy, just concentrate on your study ,discontinue using contact lens&use eyeglasses .

You are allergic to the material of the contact lenses. Which contact lenses are you using and for how long. Try changing it to silicon lenses which are least allergogenic.Using the said drop on long term basis is not good
