I have pink eye! For the first time ever.

It is awful! I just woke up and my eye is totally stuck together.

Any advice? I am using antibiotic eye drops. Can I clean it out with a wet washcloth?

I used wet and warm cotton balls to remove the gunk.

Wash your hands and anything that touches your eye such as pillow cases and towels. If you have an eye doctor call him/her. Don't wear contacts. My eye doc will prescribe antibiotics plus some steroid drops. They are life savers because that stops the swelling and itching.
