I have pink eye.

And I just googled home treatments.

It says mix honey and warm milk, has anyone tried this, and has it worked?

I was always told to go to the doctor and use the antibiotic drops or you could lose your vision.

Buy similisan pink eye relief. Cheap, OTC, and much better than putting random stuff in your eyes... The only home relief I would recommend is breastmilk.

VERY TRUE! pink eye isn't good to mess with, well anything that involves your eyes isn't good to mess with. You can not get new eyes

You can not loose your vision because of pink eye.

Op make sure you never touch your eye, and if you do wash your hands immediately. If you touch your eye and touch it again...you reinfected yourself again. Pink eye lives by the rule of 8's. 8 days incubation, 8 days misery. It will go away on its own...but its best to go to a doctor and get a antibiotic.

I never heard of that.

But too bad, I don't have breastmilk. And wouldn't that hurt if you put it in your eye?

I have fake tears, it said online to use that, and it's not bothering me that much anymore.

I'm gonna have hubby walk over to the store and get me some eye drops for it.

Next time use a warm tea bag a few times a day for 5 min. My sister got those all the time, and thats what my grandpa said to do and it worked wonders.
