At this point my sons eye is completely closed shut and he can't open it at all. The discharge coming from his eye is now blood but yet the "NURSE" said his eye looked so much better than it did when we came in. I just wanted to get out of there so I just took their word for it. I have to say though that unless we caught a heart attack or chest pains...I'm pretty sure we were safe in the ER at that exact moment.
Needless to say my kid woke up the next morning with pink eye in his other eye. Double pink eye in a two year old is NOT FUN...please, just take my word on that! Twice a day me and Paul together sit on him and hold him down to swipe an ointment antibiotic across his eye. And he is almost healed besides the first eye is really bloodshot but seems to be healing.
I took pictures of his eye after he had already had 10hours of medicine...this was a huge improvement from how it was earlier on Thanksgiving day....
Before he had it in the other eye!
(that's blood dripping from his eye)
Made your eyes hurt didn't it! Be careful...the rumor is that you may catch this pink eye just from looking at him:) But so far the rest of us have stayed safe with way to much hand washing and more Lysol than my lungs can stand to hold. If I don't die from the pink eye, it will for sure be from an overload of Lysol to me system!
So on to the title...what cures pink eye. Well, I'm still not sure b/c I used all three things. Those things would be the prescription, baby shampoo and BREAST MILK. That's right, I said breast milk. Google it, it's so true. Don't worry, it wasn't mine...it was my sisters (does that make it better or worse?). Let's just say that Teg's eyes are getting better and he now walks around saying "Dat milk cold in my eye":)
