Hi~

This is a warning for anyone with eye infections. Please Do Not use apple cider vinegar in or around your eyes. I had an eye infection, looked online and saw that claims were being made that it was okay to use this in your eyes (and that it cured infections). I made the mistake of doing so, it burned my eyes (not permanently) and I was so scared that I went to Urgent Care and then an Opthamologist. This is an acid and should never be put anywhere near the eyes. There are many posts saying that this is fine. It's not and could be very dangerous. Your eyes are precious - if you have a problem, go to an eye doctor.

Please help. I have had viral conjuntivitis for over 4 months. I tried a prescription from an optomitrist and no help. I have now been using 1/4 tsp. Apple cider vinegar to 1/2 cup water mixture for over a week and while it seems to help the itchiness, my eye does not appear to be healing. There is a thick red line through my eye to the left and right of the color circle. It seems to be spreading to the other eye. Has any one ever heard of pink eye like this? I have no insurance but started to call opthamologists about appointments anyway. I am concerned I might be damaging the eye. Yeah, I'm scared. Any words of advice? Thanks

I tried this cure. It made my pink eye worse. After the burning subsided the itching and grittiness was 10 times worse.
