100 watt basking bulb might be too much... make sure the basking temp doesn't go much past 92.... also if you have a fan on or an ac unit blowing air it might be irritating it
 
I used a touch of terramycin on a irritated eye after the shower didn't work and in 2 days had my guy back to normal and he stopped itching and blinking its like it never happened that medicine is great...but im not a vet just saying what worked for me

Yes it dries out its only a 30 second mist do u think I should make it a longer mist with more time between mists?

terramycin is a broad spectrum antibiotic and should be used for a certain time period in order to knock out a population of bacteria, be careful when self medicating because you could potentially set up a resistant strain in your cham. Hope the vet solves the prob for you. Good luck
