Does conjunctivitis go away on its own in dogs?
While non-infectious conjunctivitis is not a serious condition in and of itself, it won't clear up on its own without treatment, and it may point to a more serious health problem that needs to be addressed. Additionally, if left untreated, your dog could sustain a permanent eye injury or even vision loss.
How serious can conjunctivitis be?
Conjunctivitis can be a frustrating condition – particularly allergic conjunctivitis – but in most cases it doesn't pose a serious threat to health. Complications of conjunctivitis are rare, but when they do occur they can be serious and include: a severe case of allergic conjunctivitis can lead to scarring in the eye.
Can you buy pink eye medicine over-the-counter?
Over-the-counter eyedrops called artificial tears may relieve symptoms. Some eyedrops contain antihistamines or other medications that can be helpful for people with allergic conjunctivitis.
Can Benadryl help with 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.
How do I know if my child has pink eye or allergies?
A child suffering from allergic conjunctivitis may experience redness, swollen eyelids, an increased number of tears, itchy eyes and blurred vision; however, allergies are not going to produce the same kind of discharge or crusting that is a hallmark of an actual eye infection.
