Cures for pink eye
Home Remedies for Pink Eye (Conjunctivitis)
Use warm or cold compress – You have to use warm compress on the area if the pink eye is due to an infection. In addition, change the compress after use to prevent further infection. Use cold compress on the other hand, if the condition is caused by an allergen or irritant.
Wash your eyes with water – Washing them with water will help keep them clean. Be sure to wash your hands afterwards.
Breast milk – The immunoglobulin in a mother’s breast milk prevents the
pink eye from getting worse. Use it like you would an eye drop.
Potatoes – Potatoes are natural astringents, and therefore help to clean out the eyes. Cut them into circles (like cucumbers) and place them on the eyes.
Avoid using contact lenses – You can further irritate and worsen the condition of the eye if you use contact lenses, especially since contact lenses require you to use a solution. Let your eyes take a rest from them until it has fully healed.
Your eyes are two of the most sensitive areas of the body, so it is very important that you treat them with the utmost care. Because of this fact, many people utilize natural home remedies as eye treatments for conditions such as pink eye. These natural solutions are favored over pharmaceutical ‘solutions’ which may contain harsh ingredients further worsening the eye condition.
Although there are still many more home remedies for pink eye, the ones listed above are some of the most popular and most effective ones which can be utilized.
