WHAT IS PINK EYE?
Pink eye, also called conjunctivitis, is a common eye infection that causes redness, swelling, itching, tearing and a slightly thick, whitish drainage.
SYMPTOMS OF PINK EYE
  • Redness in the white of the eyes
  • Tearing
  • A burning sensation in the eyes
  • Mild pain and soreness in the conjunctiva
  • Yellow-green discharge or drainage from the eye that may cause the eyelashes to stick together and form a crust during the night
  • Swelling of the upper eyelid, making the lid appear droopy

TYPES OF PINK EYE

Bacterial pink eye may develop when bacteria enters the eye or the area around the eye. The infection typically lasts two to four days with antibiotic treatment or seven to 10 days without antibiotics.

Viral conjunctivitis usually resolves itself within two to four weeks, and it cannot be cured by antibiotics. It also remains contagious as long as the eyes are red, usually between 10–12 days.

 EYE WASH RECIPE

To make a neem eye wash to use for itchy, red eyes, conjunctivitis etc. boil 1/4 cup Pure Neem Organic Leaves in a 32 oz. of water for ten minutes. Let cool for 60 minutes or more. Wash eye carefully at least 2 times daily. 

The same mix can be used as a gargle to treat a sore throat, or as a mouthwash to treat gum disease and prevent tooth decay.
