Mother with pink eye!

Hello!! I have pink eye.. grr! I went to the doctor and they gave me an ointment to put in my eye.. No drops.. Sort of like vaseline.. Today I woke up with the worst sore throat and stuffy nose ever.. Does that mean I should go back to the doctor? Are they connected in some way? I just don't want my 4 month old to catch it!!!

  • Go back tot he doctor, odds are you have something else too. Or they misdiagnosed the pink eye.

  • You might not have pink eye, but a cold in your eye,, this might be why the doctor gave you ointment and not drops, they do make a homeopathic pink eye drop, but I think you had better call the doc again and tell them the new developments.

  • I don't think that they're connected, but I do think you should go back to the doc to make sure you're okay and to see whats going on.

  • They can be connected, but also might not be. Speak to the doctor.
