Herbal Remedies for Pink Eye, Conjunctivitis



Pink Eye or Conjunctivitis is caused due to some allergic reaction or when some virus or bacteria attacks the conjunctiva. Conjunctiva consists in the inner surface of the eye lids, and outermost layer of the eye. When conjunctivitis occurs, eye usually becomes red, there is a discharge of yellowish liquid from the eye, eyelids become inflamed, and there is much itching and pain in the eyes. At times the discharge accumulates over eyelids, and on drying up, make the eyelids sticky. One should remember that pink eye is highly contagious, and therefore should wear goggles to avoid spreading of the infection, stop sharing pillows, towels and handkerchiefs, and change bed covers and handkerchief frequently.
