The mother of cure all! Apple Cider vinegar! Be sure to use one with the mother.

1 Tbls Apple Cider Vinegar
1 c. water (I used warm water from the tap)

Using cotton ball, wipe around eyes and in corners, squeeze some solution in eyes. It hurts and stings like crazy at first and you'll tear up but if you've been suffering for a couple of days, instant relief! Repeat process every couple of hours if desired. I tried this this morning, and even the red eye reduced drastically.

Hi,
I get Conjunctivitis about 5 times a year. My doctor usually prescribes some ointment. The ointment is very effective, but it hurts so much that I need to keep my eye closed for almost 4 hours. To kill the pain, I hold a warm chamomile tea bag up to my eye for 10 minutes. I suggest doing this when needed, and definitely before bed. Not only does this reduce pain for 8 hours, it reduces redness too!

When I was a kid my mom never took me to the doctor for pink eye....... She just took some strong morning black coffee (completely cooled) she dipped a wash cloth or paper towel into the coffee and cleaned my eye with it. My eye was healed within a day ! Now that I'm older and a mom myself I live by this home remedy. Works every time.

I came down with a pretty bad case of pink eye last week. I read several posts about using few drops of urine (has to be your own) in the affected eye, and since nothing else was giving me any relief, I decided to try it. NOT ONLY DID IT WORK...IT GAVE ME INSTANT RELIEF! I caught a little urine in a small bowl and dilluted it with water (about 50/50)... I used a Q-Tip and dipped it in the urine and squeezed 2 drops into my eye. Immediately, my eye didnt burn anymore. I was amazed at how soothing if felt in my eye. Then I took a cotton ball, dipped it in the urine, and wiped my eyelid, lashes and the area under and around my eye where it was irritated and red from the weeping and rubbing. Again, instant relief. Within 1 1/2 - 2 hours later, my eye was completely clear...no more redness, no more soreness. Thanks for this amazing remedy!

A treatment for pink eye
Simply apply Vaseline on your eye. I had this problem before and i dont know if it cleans or anything however, what i do know is that it moisturizes your skin and easily removes the dead skin which in a matter of just one week can make the pink eye go away. I had it twice and all i did was wash then apply vaseline and it was gone.

For pink eye - my son was on his third case of pink eye when a very old neighbor said to put his own urine in his eye. She said to do it overnight so he won't know and so it will be able to seep into the eye - but it has to be his pee. Well I couldn't wait for the night. So, I collected some of his pee (we were potty training anyway) and when he took his afternoon nap, I dropped a few drops into each eye. By the end of the day, his eyes had cleared. I gave him a Benadryl for the little bit of itching still there. And he had it only one time after that so we did the same thing. Worked fine.

pink eye remedy- as awfully painful as this sounds it works. squeeze (or have someone do it for you) lemon/ lime in your eye. i use key lime or mexican lime because thats what i have at home. squeeze a decent amount of juice in your eye and try not to rub your eye, it will itch. make sure you have a towl at hand to dab the eye. try to open your eye and look around. it will be difficult but do it to get the juice all up in there. once your able to open your eye without difficulty repeat the process. do this as soon as you get the eye infection. if you feel it coming on do it then too to prevent it. i would repeat the process one more time 12-24 hours later for good luck. if you dont like this idea dont do it. go to the doctor.

My daughter was about 2 months old when my older daughters boyfriend came over with Pink Eye. The baby got it really bad , I hated to put drops in her eyes a friends Grandmother told me to squirt breast milk in her eyes . I thought it was worth trying , it couldn't hurt. By the evening it was gone. No puss , no redness or anything it didn't even come back. I was very happy that I didn't have to take her to the Dr. and also use medicine on her at such a young age.
