Okay, so here it is -- Sunday, and we have been hoping & hoping that we would get lucky ever since the neighbor boy gave pink eye to my cousin's 2 sons (5yrs & 10 mths). Well, no luck. Ian woke up with the tell-tale snotty lookin' goo in his right eye, & his left eye is showing every sign of being about 10 hours behind in the infection. :cry :cry
I am *of course* out of state, so I can't go to my doctor. The on call nurse refused to give me any advice other than to take him in. I would love if anyone could give me any advice. Is there, by any chance, a more natural remedy? My cousin's friend's daughters (follow that? :LOL) had pink eye last year & received extra medication, so I have an unopened bottle of eye drops. They are: Sulfacetamide Sodium Ophthalmic Solution USP, 10% Sterile (glad I didn't have to try to pronounce THAT again!).
Is it safe to give this to my son? We're pretty sure the girl it was prescribed to was less than a year old, but I want to make sure it's safe! Help, help,help! If all else fails, I will have to take him to a ready-care type place tomorrow -- I simply don't have the $$ for an emergancy room visit & I know our sucky
insurance would hardly pay for any of it!
Please, wise ladies, please help!!
