  • Yes they have and it was treated with a medication from the doctor. It is tricky with little ones, but apply as directed and it will get better and go away. If it is only in one eye chances are it will spread to the other eye. GL

  • Yes, we've been though it a couple times this year since it is so contagious in day cares. We get antibiotic drops from her pedi.

  • I agree with QandA. You need to wash their hands often and try to kept them from touching it.

  • Yep, we got antibiotic eyedrops from the doctor and washed their hands all the time and they got over it fairly quickly. My 2 oldest had it at the same time when they were really little and the younger 2 hadn't been born yet.
