Hi, I was born with "Pink Eye" conjunctivitis and was prone to it as a kid. My mom would always get me anti-biotic ointment from my doctor, which I hated because the ointment was so gooey. One day (I was in my late twenties) woke up with "Pink Eye", went into a Co-Op Health Food store, and walked over to where they had what would be equal to a Pharmacy anywhere else and the person on staff was a blessing because she introduced me to "Rue Fennel". Rue Fennel comes in liquid form (usually about $9-$11) and I also bought an glass eye wash cup for $4.
Instructions: You have to use "Distilled Water" pour into eyewash cup (do not fill to the rim; you will need room for your eye). Drop 10-15 drops (read the instructions on the bottle of Rue Fennel) into the wash cup and put your head down and bring it back up with the wash cup over your eye and move your eyes every which way you can for about 2-3 minutes. Wash the eyewash cup thoroughly and dry with a clean paper towel before you repeat with the other eye. -Repeat this at least three to four times a day and keep a hot hand-towel over your eyes as much as possible (make sure to wash the hot-towel every time before you put over your eyes). It may seem like a lot to do but it is not (Rue Fennel, Distilled Water, Eye Wash Cup). It works!! The moment I begin to feel the sensation of my eyes start to itch, I do this and nothing ever develops. I even do this if my eyes are just tired from starring at the computer screen all day and my eyes feel refreshed.
This will bless you as it continues to bless me! Many Blessings to you and your health! :-)
