need conjunctivitis remedies

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Help! What worked for my kids for years is not working for me-- eyebright herbal compresses and homeo. euphrasia. I'm on day 5 and my eye is looking worse than ever. I know it's c.vitis because my daughter had it last week.

Does anyone know of anything else for "tough" cases? I'm about to resort to calling my dr. I don't want to mess with my eyes.

Are you lactating?....if you aren't do you have a close friend who is, breastmilk works great for conguntivitis. Works for us everytime. Good luck!

Thanks to all. The colloidal silver sounds expensive but I'll check while I'm out today at the food co-op.

It's terrible, but no one I'm friends with right now is a nursing mom, just relatives out of state. All our kids are getting older!

Thanks for the suggestions.

At our co-op i got a tincture of Rue/Fennel by Herb Pharm and you mix about 5-6 drops with saline solution and do eye washes with it a few times a day.Worked for me and the kids!

My pharmacist used to have a sulfuric oxide eye ointment that worked with one application...Don't know if you can still get this or not...and I don't know anymore about it than that. Old pedi prescribed it eons ago when my 19 year old was a babe - if anyone knows anything more, I'd love to hear!

Also keep in mind that some cases are viral, not bacterial so only time will heal it.
