Q & A

If your eye is creating an itching sensation or your eye turns reddish, it could be an infection. Conjunctivitis is one of the most common conditions which eye infections cause. This is a condition when your eye looks red with a swollen eyelid. It gets inflamed and may water more than usual. Conjunctivitis is contagious. Usually, this infection clears in some time without treatment. However, for severe infections, eye drops and ointments are available.


Chloramphenicol drops are antibiotics. They treat eye infections caused by bacteria. Chloramphenicol kills the bacteria. It is also known as Brochlor, Chloromycetin, Golden Eye Antibiotic, Minims Chloramphenicol, and Optrex Infected Eyes. Chloramphenicol is available as eye drops, single-use eye drops, and eye ointment. It is not recommended for children under 2 unless prescribed by a doctor.

Who can develop conjunctivitis?

The majority of cases of conjunctivitis is seen in children, but though this is true, anyone of any age is at risk of catching the disease. It’s believed that the infection is only more widespread in children due to them coming into a lot more physical contacts with other fellow children and won’t partake in frequent hygiene habits such as hand washing.


Is conjunctivitis contagious?

Viral and bacterial forms of conjunctivitis will often be easily transferable from human to human. To ensure you prevent this as much as possible you must maintain proper hygiene habits and refrain from contact as much as you can.


What’s different between bacterial and viral conjunctivitis?

Both types of the disease have the same symptoms but differ in the way they should be treated. Bacterial conjunctivitis should generally be treated with a course of antibiotics, but a viral infection should not as antibiotics wouldn’t have an effect.


Are there any methods I can take from home to treat symptoms?

The most obvious, yet effective method is the use a damp, warm cloth to wipe your eyes; if a crust has appeared overnight, hold down the cloth for a few seconds to help remove this. Always remember to wash hands thorough prior and subsequent to doing so.
