  • I used to get it all the time in high school. So often that my doctor just presribed the meds over the phone after a while. I think once you get the eyedrops and take them for 24 hours, you aren't contagious anymore, but it will take 7-10 days to clear up completely.

  • U need antibiotic eye drops to treat it from the doctor! get everybody to the doctor! It is very contagious!! Always wash hands! Don't touch eyes!

  • Yes, and it sucked. I got it when DS had it. I went to the dr and got eye drops but it didn't go away for a couple of weeks.
