<b>Hello to everyone!</b><br><br>
I have a quick question and was wondering if anyone knows the correct answer?<br>
I caught pink eye <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: from one of my kids ( day care kids<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> ) and I would like to know if I could have it again once it's gone ? I've heard from someone that once you had it you will be immune to it for life. But others told me that I can get it over and over again. I don't know a thing about pink eye, obviously this is my first one, but I need to know if someone around me will have pink eye in the future, could I catch it again???<br><br>
Thank you in advance....please tell me, if you know!<br><br><b>Kristina(29) mama to Jasmine(4) -:</b>novax: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/waterbirth.jpg" style="border:0px solid;" title="Waterbirth">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/familybed1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Familybed1"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/nocirc.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nocirc">

Great question... I just woke up (I work nights) and discovered I have pink eye... well, I have company coming in 3 days, 1 final exam and graduation from nursing school in 3 days... the stress must have brought it on...<br>
any quick healing tips? What's working for you? the doc will not give any meds for it.

<b>THANK YOU!</b> I cannot believe it. I was hoping that it's true ( to have it and you are safe for the rest of your life <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> ). Would be lovely!<br><br>
Oh, I did not go to the doctor, all I use is chamomile tea bags. It works wonders.<br>
My poor DD. I feel helpless since she stopped nursing, what will I squirt in her eyes once there's no more breastmilk <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> ( I mean if she'll get it from me )<br><br><b>Thanks again!</b>
