Should I talk to my doctor about my keratitis symptoms?

There are many conditions that can lead to eye irritation, like allergies or hay fever, so it may be difficult to tell if your symptoms are from one of those conditions or from a more serious condition like keratitis. But if it is keratitis, it is very important that you get immediate treatment so your doctor can help you stop the damage from getting worse.
