My friend told me he had pink eye and I’m not into meds unless I can’t avoid it…I know there is a home remedy out there somewhere and I wanna find out what it is.

Simple place cool, moist chamomile tea bag on each closed eye for about 10 minutes. Repeat this every couple hours. You can buy these tea bags at any supermarket. Make sure chamomile is the only ingredient.
You can also simply make the tea (a little stonger), and then use an eye cup to hold the luke warm tea in each eye. You can get an eye cup at most pharmacies.
You can also just wash the eyes out with the tea, make a compress with a cloth, or even soak a cotton ball in the tea and wipe the eyes every so often.

Michael asks…

anyone have a home remedy for pink eye?

can one tell the difference between an eye cold, and pink eye?
do hot tea bags really work to help relieve pink eye?

vti answers:

There isn’t any my dear. Plain and simple, it’s an infection. Conjunctivitus is the proper medical term.
Go to the local clinic. You’ll be prescribed eye drops. Use them faithfully. The infection should clear in almost 24 hours. Use the drops for at least a week….pink eye or not.
Also…wash all pillow cases and anything you may have lain your face on. This includes shirts and sweatshirts if we’re talking a kid whose been wiping his/her eye with a shirtsleeve. This is very contagious. Be careful.

Linda asks…

What is a good home remedy for pink eye?I read that chamomile tea bags are good.?

vti answers:

Well it might go away on it’s own, it depends what kind of pink eye you have

Symptoms generally depend on what type of pink eye you have: infectious pink eye or non infectious.

Symptoms caused by viral and bacterial pink eye include red watery eyes (accompanied with discharge) and irritation. It is likely to start in one eye and spread to the other. Infectious pink eye is contagious.

Symptoms of non infectious pink eye might include, heavy tearing, irritation and itchiness. Both eyes are usually affected. This type isn’t contagious.

Giant papillary pink eye usually affects both eyes and causes contact lens intolerance, itching, a heavy discharge, tearing and red bumps on the underside of the eyelids.

Treatment for infectious (viral and bacterial) varieties of pink eye include the same kinds of treatment for many other contagious conditions.

Bacterial pink eye can be treated with antibiotics to help kill the infection. Antibiotic ointments are also available. A warm wash cloth can also be used to dissolve the discharge.

The viral type of pink eye usually won’t require medication, except in small children. . Viruses must be fought off by your body’s immune system. But some antibiotics may be prescribed to prevent secondary bacterial infections from developing.
