  • pink eye is caused by getting fecal matter in the eye.

    it's a bacterial infection, needs an antibiotic cream to clear it up.

    although you may get some relief by rinsing your eye with cool water.

  • Breast milk...really. Or just keep it washed out really well.

  • Pinkeyes sole cause is not fecal matter. There are many, many various forms of it. Fecal matter is onnly one. Colds, allergies, irritants and on and on....google it. I am correct.

  • If it's bacterial you'll need antibiotics.

    If it's viral you'll have to wait it out.

    You can buy over the counter drops for some relief - not a cure, just relief from the itching.

  • It is caused by many things. If you can't get anywhere and don't have BM then I would use cool compresses to help and maybe take a benadryl to help with the itching.

  • well then, a sty is totally different from pink eye...

    for a sty, clove oil will help with the pain, if you don't have clove oil, soak a clove in warm water and place it on your eyelid where the sty is. a warm tea bag compress will also help

  • Um yeah...warm compress over eye. A sty is like a pimple in a way. Only you can't be popping this one. LOL
