My 3 year old has pink eye, her left eye is oozing and it's blood shot...pink eye. my doctor is going to be calling in a prescription but what else can you do to treat it? i mean until the script gets here?
i just had my twins and am so scared they'll get it or me. ive been making her wash her hands ALOT and ive disinfected the things she's touched this morning(before i told her not to be rubbing her eye) and also washing the blankets she's used etc..she just started showing symtoms of it last night.

The doctor should see your child to make sure it is pink eye and to do a culture since you have iinfants. Pink eye is very catchy and you want to make sure it is pink eye, what bacteria it is and if that is a bacteria that is extra dangerous for infants. Not all eye infections are pink eye. Once you start a med it is too late to do a culture and sensitivity.
You need to keep the 3 yo away from the babies. Breastmilk in the eyes of all of them will help heal and prevent.

Human milk is a living fluid that contains white blood cells (WBC). It has many healing properties and is used all over the world for eye infections. It can be used to wash out foreign bodies in the eye and even snake venom. It is sterile. Breastmilk does not contaminate anything. In a pinch it could be used to clean wounds or burns. It is a normal physiologic fluid like saline.
