  • salt gets in your eyes


    Has anyone heard of salt crystals forming on the eyelids? Friend with c4/5/6 incomplete is having issues with sweat? or something creating salt crystals that form on her eyelashes. When she works hard or gets emotional the salt gets in them...

    What say you?

    This can sometimes occur due to the effects of a cervical spinal cord injury on the autonomic nerves that control sweating and tear production through the cranial nerves. Many of my clients keep a damp washcloth handy to wipe their eyes (or have someone else wipe for them) when exercising or just as part of evening or AM care.

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.


      Thank you.
