Pink Eyes and Its Natural Cures

Conjunctivitis has various symptoms such as pink eye, burning, stinging, irritation and pain, among which pink eye is the most obvious and common one. As a result, conjunctivitis is always called pink eye for short. Pink eye can occur in both the young and adults.
Pink eye can be caused by many other reasons. Improper handling of metal glasses may bring infection and pink eye is caused. Various underlying diseases with inflammation also contribute to pink eye, such as Blepharitis, dry eye, Lyme disease, and so on. Once these diseases are cured, pink eye will disappear on its own.The treatment of pink eye is always in accordance with its cause. Bacterial conjunctivitis requires antibiotic eye ointment or drops, while allergic conjunctivitis should be treated with artificial tears to dilute irritating allergens.
Now, Human Eyes Info will share some natural cure for pink eye.

  • Putting drops of honey mixed in warm water in the affected eye is an effective pink eye remedy. However, be prepared for a little burning discomfort.
  • Prepare a poultice of grated raw but red potato or grated apple and put it on your closed infected eyes for ½ an hour. And you would find favorable results within 2-3 days.
  • Eyebright plant is highly effective in treating pink eyes. To 1 tablespoon of boiled water add 3-4 drops of eyebright tincture. When sufficiently cool you can bathe your eyes with this mixture.
  • Use Fennel - This plant although used in the kitchen for salads is also a very good herb for vision problems. When snakes shed their skin they are temporarily blinded and eat fennel to restore their sight. It can be eaten raw or made as a tea and the tea can be used as an eyewash.
  • Castor Oil - Put one to two drops in your eyes two times each day. Your eyes will get better within one day, but you should keep using it for a few more days to make sure it is completely gone. Your eyes will get blurry from the oil but it does not sting or hurt and in fact can be soothing. Castor oil is an antimicrobal and is excellent for healing.
Although most of the times eye problems are localized or within the eye itself, some others, the eyes reflect diseases elsewhere in the body; for example blur vision can be a sign of diabetes, yellow eyes can be a clue to hepatitis or a remarked difference in the pupil's size can indicate that a tumor is developing somewhere in the body. Using home remedies for common eye problem will get your eyes healthy again.

If only one eye is infected (take care of the other), do not touch or rub it, discharge from the eyes should be wiped with tissue and disposed off.

    I used to get pink eyes a lot when I was younger and elderberry tea helped me to cope with it.

    A concentrated infusion made from elderflowers is a great ally to treat this condition.
