  • Is there crud in it? Like, yellow goo? That's a sure sign of pink eye - though usually I don't think it's swollen but the eye white is pink.

    I read here on CM though if it is pink eye, breast milk will clear it up. ..Go figure.

  • If it is pink eye, I know for a fact that flushing your eye with tea and putting a cool tea bag on your eyelid should take care of it. It worked for my nephew, who frequently gets pink eye.

  • not sure if it's pink eye, but if it is, i'd get it looked at because you won't want your kids getting it because it is highly contagious.
