Does anyone know of any natural pink eye treatments while pregnant. I have some colustrum already would that work the same way as breastmilk? Or are there any othere treatments? It from allergies so I'm not sure if that makes a difference.

colloidal silver - they're good for eye and ear infections.

Where would be a place that would carry it? Would I go to a pharmacy or a whole foods type store? Thank you!

When I googled to find how to spell it, there were places you could buy it online. I would try a store like Whole Foods if you need to get it right away. I've heard breastmilk works, too. I'm sure colostrum is just as good, but that's speculation. I've used the silver, and it worked well.

I'd give the colustrum a try!

Try the colustrum. You can also look into eyebright.

I have used breastmilk and silver. I got my colloidal silver from my naturopatic Dr.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm going to try colostrum and the teabags first if that doesn't work I'll try the silver stuff.

My mom told me to just hold a silver spoon on it when my kids got about a year ago. I didn't have anything silver so I just used breast milk but maybe if you have something silver you could try that while you're waiting for your other silver to come in.
