  • You could ask your pharmacist for advice. Warm compresses is my thought. But you should see a doctor as soon as possible. How about an urgent care clinic?

  • I just got over pink eye!! I was using my contact stuff to wash my eye out about 4-6 times a day, and at night I would lay a warm compass on it. It took about 2 weeks for it to go away, but I really don't like taking any medicine, so it just happened to clear up for me. Hope that helps!

  • Go to an urgent care clinic. Pink eye is highly contagious until you have been on meds for 24 hours and if left untreated can cause other problems with your eyes and sight (per my doctor and eye doctor). I never mess around when it comes to my eyes. You can be infecting the rest of your family and anyone you come into contact with until you get the drops. I highly suggest using Lysol on any hard surfaces that you can to prevent it from spreading to others.

  • They are going to give you an eye drop solution that you can by over the counter visine or clear eyes should work. Use it every 4 hours make sue that you wash your hands before and after. They will only give you antibiotics if you've had it for more then a week and it's really bad. If you do this it should clear up in a week but you have to stay on top of it and not touch your eyes. Keep washing your hands. My dd had it and this is what we did and it worked.
