Not in any way criticizing any other suggestions listed above but I've easily dealt with pink eye by using a few drops of colloidal silver onto eye ball itself. Twice a day for two days. Gone.

I would like to add another "YEA" to using colloidal silver for pink eye.

I contracted pink eye from someone at work. I had leftover antibiotic eye drops, but I have been trying to get over candida overgrowth and C. Diff, and therefore I am no fan of them. I went on EarthClinic and found a number of people had tried colloidal silver for pink eye. I had some left over from when I was sick a few months ago, so I thought I'd give it a try. I applied one drop every 2 or so hours all day on Day 1. It is now Day 2, and it is almost completely gone! Thanks!

My recent eye infection treated with anti inflammitory drops antibiotic drops for 1 week with little results and no resolve. C.S. began working immediately and infection was completely resolved within a few days.

I kept sleeping with my contacts for weeks and noticed my eyes getting a little more uncomfortable everyday, but this morning they were gooping pus, red, and tearing. I decided to throw out my contacts and take it easy today.

First thing I did was use a drop of colloidal silver, it felt slightly gritty for the first 10 seconds or so, but then felt wonderful afterwards. I continued to add more drops since it finally made my eyes feel better, and then another drop every hour so so afterwards.

At noon I also put warm and then cool Earl Grey tea bags over my eyes this afternoon and put a tiny bid of neosporin around the rims of my eyes and wiped the remainder away.

This afternoon I was able to put a new pair of contacts in my eyes and they really feel wonderful. I think the colloidal silver worked the best though. Every time I put another drop in my eye, it just felt so much better.

Hi Lattelisa - I too have tried colloidal silver for pink eye and found that, with applications several times during the day, within a day or two my eye was clear; the pink eye never fully developed.

Two days ago I had a sore throat - it hurt so bad I could barely swallow - it felt like strep in the making. I doubled up on echinacea and took colloidal silver in water 2 or 3 times and ~ VIOLA! Throat is feelin' fine.... Gotta love it. Here's to our Health, by natural means.....Linda

This really works. My 7yo woke up with crusty itchy eyes. At first we were going to take her to the dr, but I decided to check Earthclinic first. I'm glad I did. I put one drop of colloidal silver in each eye twice a day and it cleared up in about 3 days. Also, I made sure I washed and changed her bedding before starting the treatment.

I started to get pink eye many years ago. A few people at work had it. I was watching TV and rubbing my eye. It was starting to itch when all of a sudden I realized..... Oh crap. I looked in the mirror and sure enough it was all red and a little puffy. I put a few drops of collodial silver in. Immediate relief. About an hour later I put in some more before going to bed. In the morning there was no signs of it.

I've had pink eye 3 times in my life. What worked the best was colloidal silver. One drop in each eye every 4-6 hours; no touching or rubbing the eye(s); washing hands and washing anything that had touched my face (towels, pillow case, etc. ), and depending on the severity, the pink eye cleared up within 24 hours to 3-4 days. It's also important to be sure and sleep on your back. If you lie on the side that is not infected and a tear travels from the infected eye, over the bridge of your nose, and some how makes contact with your good eye, then you'll wake up with 2 pink eyes. I know, since it happened to me. : (

Now if I feel any discomfort in my eyes and suspect pink eye, I'll quickly use the silver. The Santa Ana winds in So California is the worst time for pink eye. Wear sunglasses if the winds are blowing.

There seems to be several different natural cures for pink eye, but I would like to add what we use to the list. We raise dairy and meat goats. We have four bucklings kept together in an area just for them. One came down with pink eye this past winter, and one by one they all got it. Most people that have goats knows that just a 1/2 of a dropper full of fresh, raw milk will cure pink eye in just a couple days. After milking my does I would immediatley put some milk in a dropper and squeeze that into my bucklings eye. Twice a day is good, but even just once a day will cure it fast. I have read if you don't have fresh milk, you also can even used evaporated milk. So it doesn't have to be raw or fresh, although I think it would be better. This also works on humans. It's so easy and simple and almost everyone has some milk in the refrigerator. Hope this helps someone.

Failed me this time! -- I've had pink eye for 13 days now, was becoming increasingly frustrated by the 10th day. C. Silver was not working like it did before, and I planned to just call the doctor for an Rx. I started to read more about pH and acid-alkaline in the body for my husband, and stumbled on a possible answer to my recurring ailments, e. G. pink eye, hair loss, etc.

On the night of the 10th day of pink eye, I decided to drink a green smoothie and I was feeling SO much better within 1/2 an hour. The itching and swelling began to reduce. I am possibly suffering from acidosis, so I will pursue more knowledge on that, and ask for a pH blood test from my doctor.

It's the 12th day, and I have almost no more itching, very little swelling and discharge, but I did suffer symptoms of a head cold/sinus infection the next day after the green smoothie. Like the infection traveled trying to get away -- I also started using a boric acid eyewash, which is slightly alkaline.

If c. silver isn't working for you, try drinking a green smoothie to see if it makes a difference, you may need some pH balancing.

I had a developing pink eye last Friday noticed by my manager, at the same time I was starting to not feel too well. When I got home, my husband had me put a soaked hot cloth on my eye for 15 minutes, later washed it with cloth with baby shampoo and water, then finally washed it with just plain water. I searched on the internet for added information and saw the silver colloidal mineral testimony so I did it also by using q-tip since we don't have available spray bottle as suggested. I did the washing one more time the next morning and kept using the silver colloidal mineral using qtip as an eye drop all throughout the day.

By Sunday , it was totally gone-except for my flu. Ever since Friday when I started to noticed I was having sypmtoms of flu I started drinking the Apple Cider Vinegar with water and eat tablespoons of honey which I liked. I love taste of vinegar coz in the Philippines I grew up using it in all my fruits and even drinking it. Anyway, the next day Saturday, on my day off I did it again like morning, afternoon and evening. I never felt weak, I felt strong but I know my body is fighting a flu. The next day Sunday, I kept it going and by the end of the night, it was gone-totally. So thank you earth clinic for your help.

When my eyes get itchy and icky, colloidal silver (CS) works fast. I accidentally left the CS batch brewing for several hours and since the solution was bit yellow I don't ingest but works great topically.

Don't ever put 3% Hydrogen Peroxide in the eyes, I did that by accident. Contact lense used to have a cleaner called AOSEPT (you use with neutralizing disc) and I mistakened it for saline. Aosept was basically 3% H202. It burned so bad and turned eye so red and I kept flushing with water for like 1/2 an hour but no damage. Had it been 35% H202, it probably would have burned the corneal tissue!

But CS in eye is soothing provided you make it right, distilled water, pure silver (at least .999), no salt.

I have several times, used a drop of colloidal silver in each eye for pink eye and it's worked every time...and very quickly.

I have used Colloidal Silver for Pink Eye and it does work. I was a little scared at first since it was my eye, but it did not hurt and cleared very quickly, just as reported.

Pink eye cure!

I mix raw honey, Colloidal Silver (CS) & Greek organic plain yogurt in a dropper.

Put it in eye every 20 minutes or so for a few hours. It will burn just a bit at first. You have to put it I'm your eye at least twice an hour to be effective.

It will clear up In a few hours!

Miracle Cure! After using antibiotic eye drops and my infection getting worse, I came here and combined your top two remedies. I had some old 18 ppm collodial silver and I added a bit of isotonic saline solution to fill my bottle and just enough organic Apple Cider Vinegar to give the solution a slight burn when dropped in my eyes. I put the drops in hourly while awake. One day later, and no green gunk, the itching, reddness and pain is almost completely gone. I will continue for a few more days just to make sure the infection is gone.

Elderflower or Sambucus nigra.

Collect the flower in early summer (May and June flowering). Cover the freshly picked flower heads with boiling water and leave to cool. Take the solution and use a dropper or cotton bud to apply to your eyes. I used this 2 days ago, it works and is an old and I thought well known remedy. Also for cats and dogs with conjunctivitis. Putting vinegar in your eyes just sounds silly. Sambus flowers are very antiseptic. The same thing with a cooled solution of sugar and water poured over the flowers and left for 48 hours makes a wonderful cordial. This eventually will form a alchoholic drink if left to ferment as the flowers supply their own favourable yeasts.

Flax Seeds and Aloe Vera Juice

Flax Seeds and Aloe Vera Juice Cured My Eye Infection.

This remedy was given to me by the owner of a health food store who learned it from her grandmother: For any type of eye infection (mine was bloodshot and pinchy upon waking in the morning--possibly Pink Eye), she does the following:

Pull out the skin "pocket" below the eye and insert at least two flax seeds or as many as you can get in there. Then put a drop of aloe vera juice on the eye. Leave seeds in overnight or up to 24 hours, then remove them (they will be gummy after drawing the bacteria to them). If eye infection isn't cleared up, repeat for another 24 hours.

Notes: flax seeds can be purchased at a health food store and must be kept refrigerated. Aloe vera juice does not need to be refrigerated. Do not put contact lens in eye while flax seeds are there.
