whats a home remedy to remove pink eye?

i have pink eye, and i had work so i coudnt make it to the doctor. the doctor doesn’t work tomorow or the day after. I want to get rid of it so i can go to a party with NORMAL eyes. any ideas?

vti answers:

I’ll try and keep this simple, read one answer and had to eat a snack before I got done.
I was knocking down some rabbit hutches and developed a case of conjunctivitis and was actually told by my physician to see a particular eye surgeon.
My condition was so bad that my eye would seal up at night to where I had to put a warm compress on it to open it up and remove the fluid build up.
The surgeon checked it out and gave me an injection of antibiotics and a prescription to get additional medication.
He wanted me back in a week to see how my eye was responding, To make this short, if not treated you may have to have your eye removed, this is a worst case scenario but something you should be aware of, nothing to mess around with.

Anyone know a quick home-made pink eye remedy?

I got pink eye two weeks ago, and albeit using hot compresses, wiping away from the eye, keeping it clean, no contacts etc., my pink eye has gotten worse. I have thick green goop in my eyes and milky film over the pupil and iris. My eyes are kind of purply when I wake up, but turn more pink towards the end of the day. I cant make a doctors appt. at the moment, so does anyone know a good, healthy, home remedy that can work quick? Anything would be great. Thanks 🙂

Here are a few home remedies:

Colloidal Silver — Put two drops of colloidal silver in your eyes two or three times a day. Colloidal silver has been known to cure pink eye as quickly as six hours. You have had your pink eye for some time so it will take longer. Be sure to use a few days after healing to be safe.

Castor Oil — Put one to two drops in your eyes two times each day. Your eyes will get better within one day but you should keep using it for a few more days to make sure it is completely gone. Your eyes will get blurry from the oil but it does not sting or hurt and in fact can be soothing.

Lemon Juice — Take an eye dropper and put one to two drops of freshly squeezed lemon juice in the infected eye. This will sting and hurt some but is well known to cause immediate improvement if you are looking for a really fast cure.

Sea Salt — Put a teaspoon of sea salt in one cup warm water and stir until dissolved. You can ether drop the saline solution you have created directly into your eye or use a cotton ball and get it really wet and put on your eye allowing the water to run into your eye. This is a tried and true remedy used in England.

Hope these are helpful and good luck.

Home remedies for my dogs pink eye?

So my dog has pink eye and we don’t really have the money to go to the vet so do you know of any home remedies we could try?? Thanks:)

vti answers:

Sorry, there are no home remedies for conjunctivitis (pink eye).

Even if there were a way to treat it on your own, eyes are very tricky, and attempting to treat the wrong condition could make matters MUCH worse.
Your vet needs to actually look at the eye and determine what is causing the irritation. Then he can provide the proper treatment. Please remember. If you treat is incorrectly, you could cause major damage to the eye.

You need to get the dog to the vet, so start saving your pennies. It doesn’t need to be done right away, but within the next week or two she needs to go. Leaving an eye infection untreated can also lead to major damage to the eye.

ADD: Please, please, please do NOT take the first poster’s advice. It may have worked out fine for them, but the risk is too high. If you must, call your vet and see if there is anything you can do, but DO NOT take the advice from a random stranger. Pink eye has many different causes. Treating the wrong cause can hurt your dog!

Mary asks…

how do i use the black tea on my pink eye & is black tea a good home remedy to cure pink eye?

i’m nervous to use the black tea bag on my eye because i’m scared it will make it worse and i have no idea how to use it or make it. My eye has no irritation, itch, or goop. Its just a little red. I think its almost gone but i want it to be gone by Sunday night. which would be better, green tea or black tea. or is there any better home remedies i can use?

vti answers:

That’s the home remedy my mom gave me when i had pink eye too
and don’t worry, it won’t make it worse
i don’t know about green tea, though
make really strong tea with a tea bag and soak a tissue in the tea, then put it on your eye, maybe eyelid. Then hold it there for 30sec — a minute
i don’t know if it was the tea that made mine better or did it go away on it’s own but it wont hurt to do it
btw, i hope we never get pink eye again! It was horrible, mine lasted a week

Robert asks…

is there a home remedy for pink eye??

vti answers:

I don’t know, but when we were little, my mom used to make a solution of table salt and warm water and wash our eye out with it a couple times a day. I still do this and I’ve never had to go to the doctor for it. I also use this on my kids when it looks like they are getting pink eye. It always works for us. Good luck! P.S. Don’t put too much salt in the water, just about a teaspoon to 1 cup of warm water.
