Homeopathic Remedies for Conjunctivitis or Pink Eye

Conjunctivitis Treatment

Conjunctivitis, also known as pink eye, is a very common eye problem and rarely serious. It is an inflammation of the conjunctiva which is the membrane that covers the white of the eye as well as the inner surface of the eyelids.

Symptoms to look out for are redness in the whites of the eyes and feelings of sand in the eye.  For severe cases, eyelids can become swollen, intense aversion to light, itchiness, profuse watering and pus formation causing eyelids to be unable to open.

Homeopathy can greatly help in easing discomfort and reducing inflammation however if there is no marked improvements within one week, you will need to pay a visit to your doctor.
