  • She can go to an urgent care or a MinuteClinic inside the CVS store. She needs to be seen before next week. Pink Eye is extremely contagious. If it is bacterial, she needs medicine, if it is viral, she could get eye damage from it.

    Encourage her to not wait.

  • if she knows someone that is lactating, and trusts them and their diet, then she could try breast milk in her eyes. it has both antibacterial and anti viral properties.
    warm wet wash cloths may not be as painful to clean her eyes with.
