12 Home Remedies for Pink Eye

If there is any part of our body we do not like to have a problem with, it is the eyes. They are the medium through which we connect to the outside world and also one of the beauty organs on our faces. Just like any part of the body, the eyes too can be infected. One common disease of the eye is pink eye, medically termed conjunctivitis.

Pinkeye is an inflammation of the conjunctiva caused by a viral infection, bacterial infection, and allergens. This disease can be found in adults, children and even newborn babies. It can be very uncomfortable and highly contagious. Fortunately, you can treat this disease at home with various substances that are handy. Let us give you tips on how you can manage your pinkeye yourself. [1]

1Warm Compress

Whether bacteria or viral pink eye, a warm compress can be used to soothe the discomfort of pinkeye. Warm compress helps to reduce inflammation and soothe redness. How do you perform a warm compress? Take a clean cloth and soak in warm water, remove and wring it out to remove the water. Place the damp cloth gently on your closed eyelids. Keep trying this compression as many times as you want or until conjunctivitis improve. When using a warm compress, make sure the water is not too hot, as this can make your pinkeye worse. [2]
