Yet they miraculously helped, she can't explain why, and she's a doctor. My other sister is into homeopathic remedies and has a bunch. When we were all together in summer, one nephew had pink eye and quickly gave it to my kids. He was on a triple antibiotic eye drop rx from the ped. I tried euphrasia eye drops from the pharmacy (the pharmacist highly recommended them, and I figured let's try them before jumping on the antibiotic bandwagon, especially since my ped always said that's mostly viral, while MD sister claims it is bacterial in kids) and their eyes cleared in under 24 hours. My nephew's case took 3 days to achieve healing. I was quite surprised. I bought a bunch of Weleda Euphrasia D3 drops and brought them back with me, as pink eye is so common.
When I had pinkeye, my doctor said that antibiotic eyedrops are absolutely useless for pinkeye. He told me to use hot, moist compresses every couple of hours, and to keep rinsing it clean (no soap), using a clean towel to dry each time.
It always cleared in 24 hours, and I haven't had it in about 20 years.
So maybe it's not so much that the homeopathic treatment worked so well, but that you weren't adding to the problem with antibiotics?
