Help! I've dealt very effectively with conjuntivitis before (my ds1 & I are susptible). In fact I have (what I thought) was a fail-proof remedy using goldenseal & eyebright. BUT I now have a virus with a fairly mild but VERY persistent conjuntivitis that I can not kick!
Here's the story: about 3 weeks ago my DS1 woke with mild pink eye symptoms, we treated it right away & kept him home. About two days later, eyes clear - all well. I woke up with a little pink in my eyes (both) the next day, along with a sore throut, a little cough, low fever, aches. I started treatment, got some relief, but redness & mild itchiness continued...and continued...and continued. I did a week of treatment, left things alone for a week, finally got anti-bacterial drops (just in case), did a week of those (they did NOTHING). So - I'm still fighting the virus & the pink eye, feeling run-down & am paying a lot of money to wash our sheets & towels everyday in hot water (& dry on hot too). I've begun to treat the virus systemically (oral echinacea & kyolic), but this ridiculously annoying thing is defeating me!
Has anyone had experience with something similiar? What did you do to get rid of it?
