Children’s Conjunctivitis

My little girl recently got cured from infective conjunctivitis using home remedy, but first let me tell you that I did consult a doctor first as soon as I noticed the redness on my daughter’s eye. Started by the way with her right eye, although it is the only eye that has inflamed the left eye also got symptoms as it is glued up with sticky coating on the eyelashes every time she wakes up in the morning, but her eyes are clear throughout the day. The redness on the right eye disappeared the next day, but the symptom remains for a week.
 The doctor did not give any antibiotics although she did advise me to continue the home remedy until it clears up, which usually in 1 to 2 weeks.

The home remedy basically just keeping the eyes clean and you can do this with cotton wool and cooled boiled water. All you have to do is soak the cotton wool into cooled boiled water, remove the excess water and gently clean away the sticky discharge on the eyelids and eye lashes.  After this, always remember to wash your hands, that way, it would keep the virus from spreading!
Antibiotics are usually given if the conjunctivitis is severe or if it has lasted more than 2 weeks, you should also consult a doctor.
