  • calloidal silver. You can buy it in health stores, or just go to your Dr. Or google home remedies for pink eye. There is a lot of stuff you can try.

  • go to the doctor and get the cream/drops to put in your eyes if it is pink eye.

    see your opthamologist if it isn't, your contacts could have scratched your eye ball.

  • how long does pink eye last? so i can wait it out and if it doesnt work then obviously it wasnt pink eye?

  • Do not wait it out, pink out can cause more problems than you think. You need meds from the doc and pink eye is highly contagious. As for your contacts, enzyme them to get the infection off the contacts. If they are disposable, throw them out and use a new pair. Pink eye is contagious until you have drops for 24 hours.
