I seem to have pinkeye. . . . goopy stuff in eye last Thursday, compounded with a sudden sore throat on Sat morning. The eye goop is usually only around when I first get up, with minimal to no symptoms during the day - no redness, etc. I have assumed it was viral and just left it alone, thinking it would be gone in a week. It's been a week and it's still here.
I don't have access to breastmilk and had read about the boric acid in saline solution. I read the ingredients on mine and it doesn't list boric acid. It's the Bausch and Lumb sensitive eyes saline plus and has sodium chloride, potassium chloride, edetate disodium and polaminopropl biguanide. I know it would be fine to put it in my eye, but would there be a benefit?
Would multipurpose contact lens cleaning solution do the same thing? No boric acid in that either, though. I would be OK putting this in my eye too, since I don't need to rinse it off my contacts before putting them in my eyes.
