Home Remedies for Pink Eye: Treat With Caution
In writing about this topic I have discovered that the “home remedy” section of my study material is huge. The number of treatments out there is crazy! That being said, I start with this:
*DO NOT use any Natural Pink Eye Remedy that you have not thoroughly investigated
and checked out with your physician. Taking medications and treatments without knowing
the side effects can be dangerous, and in allergic reactions can cause death.*
Home Remedies for Pink Eye: Know Your Enemy
Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye) is the inflammation and infection of the conjunctiva located on the inside of you eyelids and outer eyeball. It is not just “red eyes”; to find out if you actually have it, you’ll need to visit your doctor and let her run a “swab test”.
It is caused basically by three things:
- Allergens (substance your allergic to)
Which one you have will influence your treatment plan. For example:
- Viral Conjunctivitis – Can’t be cured by home remedies for Pink Eye, as it has no known treatment. It must simply run its course (8-10 days.)
- Allergic Conjunctivitis – Can only be resolved by treating the allergy and not just the Pink Eye.
What we will be talking about for the rest of the article is Bacterial Conjunctivitis. It is the one that can be cured with Antibiotic Eye Drops, but even that takes 3-5 days to complete its work. Many people want an answer much quicker and often turn to home remedies for Pink Eye.
Home Remedies for Pink Eye: Probiotics
The infection of your conjunctiva is caused by bacteria; “bad” bacteria. What Probiotics does is increase the number of “good” bacteria in the infected area, thus killing the bacteria that shouldn’t be there. Some of the more popular ones are:
- Colostrum (breast milk) – It is known that colostrum is full of nutritional goodness that babies need. Placing one or two drops in an infected eye can lead to extremely fast results. Advocates of breast feeding swear by this home remedies for Pink Eye.
- Kefir (Clear Liquid from Yogurt) – Bacteria play a key role in the making of yogurt, and it follows that a few drops of this substance a day in a Pink Eye, would help reduce and resolve Conjunctivitis.
Home Remedies for Pink Eye: Symptom Relief
The remaining items in this article will be used in a preventative or symptom-relief manner.
- Cold and/or Warm Compresses – Use whichever one feels the best to you. Just remember to use a different compress for each eye to prevent spread. Also wipe inner to outer eye, and use warmth with caution as it can lead to spread of the bacteria.
- No Contacts – Contacts will become infected if worn during the outbreak. Wait until your other home remedies for Pink Eye have worked to put your contacts back in. Your physician should be able to advise you on the appropriate time.
- Honey and Milk Mixture – Mixed in equal parts, this concoction is said to relieve the swelling and pain that accompanies Conjunctivitis.
Herbal Symptom Relief
Make sure you find the correct mixture for each ingredient before you apply or ingest any herbal supplement.
- Coriander – Mixed properly will also relieve swelling and pain.

My Mother swore by tea bags on the eyes when we had pink eye as children. I think the tannins were supposed to be antibacterial and the warm wet just soothed the irritation. My sister’s son gets pink eye a lot and she always reaches for the antibiotics right away.
