Conjunctivitis or “pink eye” as it is known in common parlance is the infection or inflammation of the conjunctiva (thin layer of tissue that covers the whites of the eyes and insides of the eyelids). The infection could be in one or both eyes and is contagious. There are different types of Conjunctivitis. Its symptoms include discharge from the eyes; the whites of the eyes have a reddish tinge, itchiness, and the feeling of something in the eye.
For treatment/cure, the patient must visit a good opthomoligist for treatment which includes antibiotic eye drops bacterial conjunctivitis, or ointment. Like a common cold, the virus has to run its full course which could be in the range of 2 – 3 weeks. For relief one may use cool compresses and artificial teardrops. For those badly affected, the doctor may recommend a topical steroid drop. Note of caution – this form of conjunctivitis is very contagious and spreads from person to person, in formats like swimming pools especially.
