  • You have to take him to the doctor to get eyedrops for it he will be contagious until 24 hrs after you start the eye treatment and you have to continue it for about 5 days.

  • My boys just had that, they got eye drops from the doctor and the pink eye was gone w/in 4 days. Just remember it is contagious, and to have him wash his hands if he touches his eyes.

  • A few days after you start the treatment. It'll start to get better sooner though.

  • When DD got it, the pink eye was much better the day after starting the drops and practically gone by the second day.
