When the pink eye is accompanied by a yellowish discharge, it’s usually caused by bacteria. The hallmark sign is waking up with eyelashes that are clumped together, shutting the eye. There’s usually pain, redness and swelling as well.

Clean the pus carefully using cotton wool, warm water and baby shampoo or eye lid wash.

The eye will be itchy, but it’s very important to try to not touch it, because you’ll infect the other eye, and/or someone else.

Keep your hands clean, always.

If you’re a contact lens wearer, stop wearing your lenses until the infection is cleared.

Clean and sanitize your phone, and computer keyboard regularly.

Come in for a consultation so we can diagnose and prescribe antibiotic ointment or eye drops.
