I have suffered with conjunctivitis on and off since last August. 4 Weeks ago I was told I had a scratched cornea, pain was horrific, that is now better but can't get rid of pink eye and excessive watering, it is also sticky in the morning. Anybody have any idea what is causing this ongoing problem and how to get rid of it? I have tried everything.
Answer from the doctor:
Is the doctor sure that you don't have an underlying dry eye condition with perhaps blepharitis? After you finish your last round of antibiotic eye drops, try this: use artificial tears every two hours, every day. Then, use Johnson & Johnson Baby Shampoo and lather it up on a very warm wash cloth. Scrub your eyelid margins 20 times back and forth, every night for two weeks.
