My dd gave me pink eye.I have been on the drops for 2 days and i swear it's getting worse. It hurts so bad right now and when i close my eyes for a few it drains big tears of drainage.It wasn't doing it that much before. has anyone been through this before?

I had it about 10 years ago. After I got my script for the cream my eye then turned red and looked like I had been punched. It did get better fast though. Try not to touch your other eye so it doesn't spread though. It will get better in a few days.

The only thing that helped me when I had pink eye was tea bags. Id heat them up in water and put them on my eye. I would put the tea bag on my eye as hot as I could stand it.

do you know anyone that is breastfeeding? 

a few drops of breastmilk (used like eye drops) will clear it right up. =)

I just got over the pink eye! Omg! My dd had it and I got rid of hers just to catch it myself. I thought mine was getting worst too. I would wake up abd have crust all around my eye and sometimes I couldnt open my eye to see past it. Did u get the drops from a doctor on prescription? They help just as long as u keep droppin them in there often. I didnt follow my directions I dropped mine in two drops every 3-4 hours. Cause I was annoyed. And watever u do, dont rub it. I know its hard but trust me. Keep ur eyes lubricated withe the drops and wash ur hands often...hope this helps..get better
