pink eye *update* racing heart

Has anyone had pink eye while pregnant. I woke up with it this morning and if course the doctors are closed so I'll have to go to instacare. But I was wondering if anyone has had it and used home remedies while pregnant to help fix it?

Update: thanks ladies its good to know about breast milk for pink eye I'll keep that in mind. I went in to instacare and got a rx she was concerned because my heart rate is elevated. She said its racing at 150 and that's resting. So now I've got to keep an eye on that to make sure everything is ok.

pink eye can only be cured by antibiotics in the eye,nystatin drops,it kills the bacteria that cause pink eye. I had it when I was pregnant with my daughter.

I've used colloidal silver when not pregnant to cure pink eye but I'm unsure if it is safe to use at this time

I think you need rx eye meds. Make sure to was eyes with warm water frequently, and ps when not preg breast milk is an awesome pink eye cure!

I would try breatmilk first if you can. hopefully you have a close friend/family who is breastfeeding, bc that'd be a realllly awkward conversation if its just someone you barely know that is breasfeeding!
