Why does my eye hurt and have discharge?
White eye discharge in one or both of your eyes is often an indication of irritation or an eye infection. In other cases, this discharge or “sleep” may just be a buildup of oil and mucus that accumulates while you're resting.
How do you treat an eyelid allergy?
Short courses of mild topical corticosteroids (ie hydrocortisone 1% cream or ointment) or calcineurin inhibitors (ie pimecrolimus 1% cream) may be required to treat active inflammation. Severe contact dermatitis of the eyelids is usually treated with a short course of oral corticosteroids.
Does Benadryl help pink eye?
Treatment includes over-the-counter antihistamines (like Benadryl or Zyrtec) or prescription allergy eyedrops. Exposures to chemicals (strong vapors/solutions) can also cause a non-contagious conjunctivitis. Staying away from the irritant and using warm compresses give relief.
Can pink eye clear up without antibiotics?
Mild bacterial conjunctivitis may get better without antibiotic treatment and without causing any complications. It often improves in 2 to 5 days without treatment but can take 2 weeks to go away completely.
Is fecal matter the only way to get pink eye?
Most viruses that cause conjunctivitis spread through hand-to-eye contact by hands or objects that are contaminated with the infectious virus. Having contact with infectious tears, eye discharge, fecal matter, or respiratory discharges can contaminate hands.
