  • Delilah Segura in Lubbock, Texas -
    Whenever my child has pink eye, I mix equal amts of honey and milk and soak a cotton ball half wet and "drip" solution into affected eye several times a day. It will sting, but it will kill the infection as honey is a natural antiseptic. Usually starts to clear up in 10-12 hours. Be sure and use a new cotton ball for each treatment so as not to reinfect your eye.

  • my friends brother put hand sanitizer in his eye to get rid of it, but I wouldnt try it cuz it would hurt. He said he got it while deployed and thats what they did for treatment

  • If you're breast feeding all you need is a couple drops of breast milk in the eyes a couple times a day. This will work for you and your children, it's amazing. And free.

    Good luck.
