Has anyone ever used milk and honey to treat pink eye and if so did it actually work?

  • My daughter's daycare told me to use salt water-it kills the infection.

  • I used breastmilk...that worked.

  • I have never heard of that, but breastmilk works GREAT. My kids all got pinkeye about a year ago, and my sister was nice enough to express some breastmilk for us. I put some in their eyes, and it was completely cleared up after two treatments.

  • I've heard about breast milk being one of the best treatments for pink eye.. never heard of the milk and honey or the salt water, all I can think of is OUCH with those two.
